Need to a place in Midtown (east or west) to go for a glass of wine with an older Oenophile Australian whose cultural tastes would blend in extremely well with the crowd here, but is perhaps a bit more conservative, perhaps even a bit patrician.

Struggling. Don't think I can get him downtown. What am I not thinking of.

The bar at Patroon might fit his tastes. 21 Club?
Or Sparks.

ETA: in rich's recurring nightmare, he goes to Bern's and it's become Sparks.

 

That would be more than a nightmare - it would be psychotic depression. :ph43r:

So, the hideous crowd is composed of young lawyers in ill-fitting suits?

For Pete's sake, if the hedge fund and private equity bros don't manage to dress properly, who can? What is the point of selling your soul to neoliberalism if you won't get your suits bespoke?

Haven't worn a tie since the 1903 World Series.

I like ties.

...no ties but always a vest with my jacket - more comfortable than a tie.

 

Still believe ties were invented by a woman who was getting even with men for the manner in which she was mistreated - can't blame her.

Love ties. Have dozens. Rare occasions to wear them now. If you wear one in a restaurant people think you’re the sommelier.
