Or As I Prefer To Be Called "humble Barkeep"
What made you want to work with food? When did you first develop that passion?
I started out as a barback and fell in love with the craft. I have been fortunate to work with some amazing chefs and have had an opportunity to work with some of the best ingredients. [I enjoy] elevating my craft and knowledge simultaneously.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I am George Duval the creator of the Mixology Class. I have created cocktails for some of New York's hottest clubs, restaurant, and lounges: Marc Forgione, Cookshop, BLT, The 40/40 club, The Top of the Standard "The Boom Boom Room", Johnny Utahs, Negril, and Soco.
In your own words, how would you describe your menu?
A fusion of Classic Cocktails with modern technic. My cocktails are progressive yet approachable.
For years after its construction in 1904, the Liberty Theater housed some of Broadway's most popular shows, and the likes of Fred Astaire, Marilyn Miller, and George Cohen graced its stage. Its glitzy interiors, meanwhile, represented the opulence of show business. Today, that grand stage is closed, but its memory lives on in The Liberty Diner. Though recently renovated, the space retains much of its original interior architecture, including the glimmering retro decor and the colorful fish tank where all the actors were kept before every show. To match this spirit, the Diner's kitchen churns out dishes inspired by classic diners and bistros of the 20th century?but with a slightly modern twist. The signature house burger is topped with bacon and bleu cheese, and offered up alongside sandwiches such as a rare ahi tuna steak and a towering open-faced reuben. Hearty Italian pastas topped with seafood or cream sauce, tender bistro-style steak frites, and house specialties such as fish and chips and oven-baked meatballs are also served. Classic house cocktails and wine provide the ideal pairings for every dish.
At RuDance Ballroom Center, specially trained instructors imbue fledgling dancers with the skills to confidently dominate on the dance floor or wow judges in toe-twinkling competitions. They lead students in all abilities through multi-tiered dance programs, imparting the steps and techniques for more than 10 traditional ballroom dance styles. Their classes range from the rhythm and Latin disciplines, such as the cha-cha and samba, to the standard dances of the tango and waltz. They also lead a kids' program for children and teens, priming our nation?s future generation of rug-cutters, who will one day preserve our freedom by winning dance-offs against the Soviet Union.
Immersing dancers in a real-world dancehall setting, the instructors transform their 7,000-square-foot studio into a rollicking dance party on the weekends, encouraging guests to showcase their newly mastered moves among their peers.
Minus 5 Ice Bar's unusual experience always starts with a trip to the coat check. But instead of hanging up visitors' jackets, staffers there hand out gloves and parkas. These luxurious duds prepare guests to step inside the refreshingly chilly winter wonderland.
Beyond the bar's front doors lies a multi-chambered palace of ice, where seats, walls, bars, and even cocktail glasses are made of frozen water coaxed to hold a certain shape. The libations within the glasses benefit from the cold as a bite of frost is added to their natural potency. They're hardly the only entertainment available, though. Amid upbeat music, each room of the bar features a unique artistic theme manifested by resident ice artists through a variety of sculptures and pieces of icy decor, many lit by colorful LEDs. Professional photographers prowl the passageways alongside the waitstaff, ready to snap photos for guests to immortalize memories or remind themselves that they didn't actually step into Narnia.
What do Scarface, The Terminator, and The Graduate all have in common? They're all inventive pizzas you can order at The West End, a swanky bookstore-turned-lounge that dazzles with live drag shows, dueling pianos, and standup comedy. Diners can share a pizza topped with caramelized apples, gorgonzola, and red onions, bite into a Bueller's burger?a half-pound baked burger smothered with pimiento cheese and the restaurant's signature sauce?or sample the fries dusted with sumac and parmesan, and drizzled with truffle oil. After dinner, guests can invite Amy Adams to their table in the form of a craft cocktail infused with muddled strawberries and fresh basil and named after their star. Downstairs, exposed bricks line the venue's cellar, which hosts live entertainment nightly, and can be reserved for private parties.
