From a new wellness mecca to decadent dining destinations, here’s what’s on our radar in NYC this month.
Remedy Place’s Vitamin IV suites
West Coast-born social wellness club Remedy Place lands east with a new 7,200-square-foot flagship in the heart of Flatiron. Offering alternative healthcare remedies such as ice plunges, cryotherapy and hyperbaric oxygen chambers, the location doubles as a two-story club fit for socializing with a bar serving healthy snacks and drinks, and a rotating retail selection of wellness products. “Thanks to the investments of those like Zedd, Rüfus Du Sol and Marcedes Lewis, we can continue to expand and rapidly scale across the country, growing our platform to educate the world on selfcare and holistic healthcare,” says founder and CEO Dr. Jonathan Leary. “It’s a simple mission: to help people feel better and feel more connected to their bodies and the people around them.” 12 W. 21st St.
Aesthetics brand Alchemy 43 has expanded from Flatiron to bring its individualized treatments to the Upper East Side. New York-based board-certified surgeon Dr. James Chelnis oversees clinical treatments like Smooth Talker, a dermal filler that helps eliminate laugh lines, and Perfect Pout, a lip injection that provides hydration and volume. Founder Nicci Levy partnered with Bruce Teitelbaum, CEO of design firm RPG, to create a chic space appointed with soft lighting, monochromatic wall panels and plush seats. “A key driver of the design approach was to elevate a sense of calm and relaxation while alleviating possible pre-procedure uneasiness,” says Levy. “The arches found in our branding and in the store design signify entering a new world of possibilities—stepping into what could be, and revealing exceptional results.” 1334 Third Ave.
BEAUTY AND GRACE
New York City Ballet’s production of The Sleeping Beauty is sure to wow this season.
Revel in Peter Tchaikovsky’s timeless rendition of The Sleeping Beauty as the fairy tale is brought to life onstage at the David H. Koch Theater this month. The captivating dance tells the story of Princess Aurora, a sleeping curse and true love’s kiss to save them all. The New York City Ballet’s production first premiered in 1991, adapting French choreographer Marius Petipa’s original dance into the vibrant, fast-paced show the company is known for. It is still one of the most elaborate and luxurious performances the company produces, featuring over 100 dancers, including students from the School of American Ballet. Feb. 15-26, 20 Lincoln Center Plaza
Timeless, slow fashion is Unsubscribed’s gift to the world. Under AEO Inc.’s umbrella, the clothing brand focuses on curated collections designed to outlast both trends and the wear and tear of a single season. The blouson off-the-shoulder top and front slit wrap pants are among staple pieces from its resort collection, and through a partnership with the Better Cotton Initiative, the cotton used in those designs is guaranteed to come from farms that are environmentally friendly and ethical. “Each of our locations are bespoke, respecting and highlighting the surrounding community and its heritage,” says Jennifer Foyle, president and executive creative director. “We love welcoming customers to our Madison Avenue store to shop our signature collection, one-of-a-kind vintage pieces and unique products from local makers.” 1190 Madison Ave.
A spread from Caviar Kaspia
Famed French eatery Caviar Kaspia finds a home in The Mark Hotel on the Upper East Side as it makes its New York debut. Originally established in 1927, its Parisian location on the Place de la Madeleine is a celeb favorite known for its twice-baked potato topped with caviar, blinis with salmon, bottarga and more. Designed by renowned French interior designer Jacques Grange, the restaurant within The Mark will also offer take-home delicacies. “Jacques Grange has created a timeless restaurant with old-world elegance, taking cues from the DNA of Caviar Kaspia,” says Izak Senbahar, owner of The Mark Hotel. “The distinctive menu will bring a taste of Paris to New York City.” 992 Madison Ave.
JUST OUR TYPE
Trochut at work
Spanish typographer Alex Trochut is the latest artist to join Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Made of Makers program—a collaboration with makers across disciplines apart from watchmaking. Trochut’s approach to language as art has garnered him international recognition and clients like the Rolling Stones and Katy Perry. For the Swiss watchmaker, Trochut created the 1931 Alphabet, a new bold typeface inspired by the art deco design also reflected in Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Reverso collection, now available at the brand’s Madison Avenue boutique. The 1931 Alphabet will be offered as a style for engravings on Reverso watches. “I think craft and technical skills are at the heart of both typography and watchmaking,” Trochut says. “Letters are a mix of emotional and rational decisions, with a big internal logic that ties all the decisions into one alphabet or lettering form, like a puzzle. While I consider watchmaking to be another level of complexity, both disciplines embody a devotion to the little things, which need to work in harmony inside a system.” 701 Madison Ave.
