555TEN | Making Your New Home Yours

March 2017

An exciting new lifestyle awaits you when you move into your 555TEN’s luxury rentals, and the key to transforming your new Midtown West apartment into a home can be found in the interior design choices you make. Luckily, 555TEN’s location means that its residents are positively spoiled by local stores that sell all the eclectic objects you’ll need to put your personal stamp on your new space. Here are some of our favorite home decor boutiques:

Francis Interiors, Inc | 452 W 47th Street
If you want to go beyond these retail options, let Francis Interiors take over the process of decorating your apartment. “Good design is problem solving” is their mantra, and Francis Toumbakaris and his team will work their magic on your Midtown West apartment in no time. Toumbakaris’s portfolio includes a naked-floored Central Park West bachelor pad punctuated with grey-washed walls and cow-skin lounger, as well as an elegant Upper West Side prewar apartment featuring pale pine kitchen cabinetry, contemporary chandeliers, and a white padded sofa. He can work his magic on your Midtown West apartment, too.

Furnish Green | 1261 Broadway
Looking to add a touch of Mad Men modishness or La La Land luxury to your apartment? Furnish Green adds 5-15 new items to its Midtown showroom every single weekday. From mirror, brass, and chrome credenzas to mid-century Adrian Pearsall rocking chairs, this unique boutique will kit you out with timeless furniture no one else has. The best thing about it? You’ll wind up with a one-of-a-kind apartment, the envy of your friends and neighbors.

Lampworks | 630 9th Avenue
Unsure how to put the finishing touches to your luxury apartment for rent? Allow Lampworks to shed some light on the situation. From classic table and office lamps, to Sputnik chandeliers, to elegant crystal rod sconces, to backlit bathroom mirrors—you’re sure to find your lighting solutions. The icing on the cake is that Lampworks can create bespoke lighting; if you have an illuminating idea, these folks will bring it to life.

Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market | West 39th at 9th Avenue
For over 40 years, this collection of antique and bric-a-brac stalls has rewarded the intrepid shopper. Every Saturday and Sunday, come rain or shine, the stall owners rock up, pitch up, and sell their wares. What you might find on any given day is anyone’s guess—maybe it’ll be a 19th-century chest of drawers; perhaps a Persian rug, mosaics, a watercolor by a long-lost painter, or even a brand-new record collection on vinyl. Whatever you discover, you’re sure to have a ball as you chat and haggle with the people on this unique patch of Hell’s Kitchen.

555TEN | Broadway’s Best Bites

March 2017

Devoted theatergoers and musical lovers at the new Midtown West luxury rentals at 555TEN have no doubt been beckoned by the lights and siren sounds of Broadway, as some of the most storied theatres in the world are just a few blocks away. And with Hell’s Kitchen’s array of dining options an easy meander from your apartment, grabbing a companion for a post- or pre-show dinner or drink couldn’t be easier. Here are three of our favorite destinations, sure to complement any drama, musical, or comedy:

Barbetta | 321 West 46th Street

Few restaurants in New York City rival Barbetta’s historical charm. Founded in 1906 by the Maioglio family, Barbetta is the oldest Italian restaurant in the city. It also lays claim to a number of “firsts”—most notably, as the first restaurant, in 1911, to own its own espresso machine. Inside, the wood-paneled bar area and ornate dining room immediately whisk you away to the grand old days of Broadway, where patrons in top hat and tails, or a floor-length gown and fur, might be spotted during an evening of highballs and witty society repartee. But the true gem is the garden, a Midtown oasis where breezes carry the scents of oleander and jasmine through century-old trees. The setting is ideal for savoring old-school Italian foods of the Piemonte tradition, paired with a bold red from the excellent wine list.

The Lambs Club | 132 West 44th Street

While The Lambs Club’s name pays homage to the 148-year-old social club for actors, songwriters, and literati that once occupied the landmarked space, its fare is decidedly contemporary. Chef Geoffrey Zakarian is known for innovative twists on beloved dishes, like the New York strip steak au poivre with bone marrow, thyme potato mousseline, and green peppercorn bordelaise. Diners can sample the kitchen’s best offerings from the pre-theater menu, but not to be missed is the autumn mushroom soup and the New York-style cheesecake with Buzzard Crest Vineyards grapes, molasses crumble, and Concord grape sorbet. And don’t forget the wine: The Lambs Club’s wine list has been dubbed one of the nation’s best by Wine Spectator.

Joe Allen | 326 West 46th Street

For classic, fail-proof fare, give this unpretentious Broadway favorite a try. For over five decades, eponymous owner Joe Allen has served good food made well—an understated philosophy reflected in the restaurant’s nearly invisible façade. Still, there’s more glamour here than Joe, an old-style restaurateur who still lives over the joint, lets on. While the walls are covered in posters of some of Broadway’s greatest flops (no hit shows ever make the cut), the restaurant and bar are a frequent haunt among A-list celebrities. If you find the restaurant packed after an opening night performance, try Orso and Bar Centrale next door, also owned by Allen. Orso features a selection of classic Italian pizzas and pastas, while Bar Centrale offers an eclectic mix that ranges from oysters and tuna rolls to Argentinian empanadas.
