Accidental Bar, East Village

This new East Village joint serves some of the best saké in the city. Expect seasonal selections and a handwritten menu scribbled with quirky tips, from the Austin Special (a blend of Orion and Asahiyama) to local saké brand Brooklyn Kura. In the mood for a quick bite as well? Pair any of its drinks with a small plate or two. We recommend the crab with miso crema over crispy potatoes.

‘Alice Neel: People Come First’, Upper East Side 

The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s new Alice Neel retrospective comprises about 100 of the American artist’s paintings, drawings and watercolours, making it the largest yet seen in the city. Featuring everything from emotionally charged cityscapes to expressionistic portraits of famous New Yorkers, the exhibition highlights Neel’s commitment to social justice and is testament to her status as one of the foremost American artists of the 20th century.
