Here are some of New York’s best winter spots

The new year has come and gone, and New York is slowly but surely making a comeback. With pandemic restrictions changing regularly, businesses are making extra efforts to cater to the city that never sleeps in these unprecedented times. From luxury salons to restaurants, New Yorkers still have plenty of things to keep them busy.

For a Makeover

When people come to Angelo David Salon, they can expect to leave with hair they never thought was possible. As owner and creative director of Angelo David Salon, Angelo David Pisacreta is a hair illusionist. Located in an open space overlooking Madison Avenue, the salon boasts a team of highly-trained staff members dedicated to making each client feel welcome and appreciated. angelodavid.com

For French Cuisine

Family-owned and -operated bistro Demarchelier Restaurant has officially opened in Greenport, New York, bringing a taste of France to the North Fork. Situated in the charming village, the new incarnation of the Upper East Side classic is called Demarchelier Bistro. The Greenport location is more casual and extremely cozy, with marble top tables, an antique bar (lovingly relocated from the former location), outdoor seating and colorful paintings by owner Emily Demarchelier’s father (famed artist Eric Demarchelier). demarchelierrestaurant.com

For a New Take on Fried Chicken

The owners of Southampton Social Club, Union Burger Bar and Union Sushi & Steak are bringing a new concept to Southampton. Restaurateurs Ian Duke and David Hilty opened Southampton’s first ghost kitchen called The Coop. As Duke put it, The Coop will serve “heavenly fried chicken that will put your taste buds on cloud nine.”

The Coop will be operating out of Southampton Social Club, which is closed during the off-season. The ghost kitchen concept will enable customers to order delivery as well as curbside pick-up. While there will be no indoor or outdoor dining at The Coop, it will be available for catering small gatherings and events. thecooptogo.com
