ISO Subterranean Drinking and Dining Spots
Full disclosure: This is for an article I'm researching...not an assignment, but something I'm writing on spec.
I'm looking for underground (as in below street level) bars and restaurants in the Manhattan area. The newer the better—preferably locations opened in the last few months or so, or perhaps even soon-to-open spots. Vibe doesn't really matter so much as the theme of being under the earth.
These are not new:
Town - The subterranean dining room is drop-dead gorgeous.
Amalia - While the main dining takes place on street level, there is a dining area and a bar room on the subterranean level.
Brasserie 8 1/2 (not new)
Dovetail (somewhat new) has a street-level bar and dining room, plus a smaller subterranean dining area
These are all great spots, and I already have them on my radar—thanks so much. But anything newer?
