A two-floor American bistro with a European art-deco motif, Tête-à-Tête Café is, as its name suggests, an optimal spot for good conversation and delicious food. The former is most likely spurred on by exotic coffee drinks, teas, and the café's vibrant artwork. The conversation may come to a quick halt, though, as soon as steamed New Zealand mussels, flame-broiled burgers stuffed with bacon and cheese, and plates of lobster ravioli arrive at the table. But the discussions will certainly continue when it comes to dessert—if only to try to decide what to order. If signature mille crepes and napoleons don’t make the choice difficult enough, there are 11 mousse cakes to choose from, including a caramel bavarian-cream rendition that’s enrobed in Belgian chocolate, and a raspberry mousse wrapped with joconde. Tête-à-Tête Café’s second floor features an intimate bar and lounge that keeps the spirit of its name alive with signature martinis that are great for toasting, sipping, and bobbing for olives.
Warm in winter, cool in summer, and filled with amazing acts in every season, the Big Apple Circus's pair of Italian-made big tops contains the best of several generations' worth of circus traditions. A look at any show's cast finds a complex network of venerable European circus families passing the arts of juggling and trapeze artistry down through the years, while the tents' motors and seating make for a comfortably modern spectator experience.
You might never guess that the troupe started small in 1974, when American circus artists Paul Binder and Michael Christensen joined forces as a juggling act on the streets of Europe. They moved from streetlights to spotlights in a hurry, appearing on the stage of the Nouveau Cirque de Paris, before returning to the U.S. and creating their own not-for-profit circus in 1976 and raising their first tent in New York's Battery Park.
