The Juicy Lounge Brings Slow-Pressed Juice to Hudson Yards



Restaurant industry veteran David Lindo has created a juice bar featuring slow pressed juices, juice shots, smoothies, a coffee program from Harlem-based Dell’Aria Coffee Roasters, and small bites in an artsy modern boutique space that breaks the post-modern mold of chain juiceries, filling the space between them and bodegas.

Designer Peter Sibilia has curated a mid-century Italian meets modern aesthetic, with a seafoam green candy-striped floor that allows the millennial pink paneled half wall to pop. Above the paneling is hyper modern pink, gold, and wallpaper of circles and their cut outs on one side, a white-washed brick wall with shelfing displaying pink books and rotary phone among other design elements on the opposite wall above the iconic Salvador Dali Mae West Lips Sofa. The juice bar itself is lined with hanging baskets, each with a different color fruit, adding a line of tropical tones to the space, accentuated by top-of-the-line juicing machines.

Lindo emigrated to the United States from Spain in 1992 and has spent his life in New York working in the restaurant industry, in management in the establishments that line Restaurant Row before founding the digital marketing company NYC Restaurant in 2001. He also owned the acclaimed East Village Yerba Buena from 2008 to 2018.

JUICES: The juices are slow-pressed from fresh fruit using top-of-the-line Kuvings Juicers to ensure that none of the nutrients are lost in the process and are broken down into three categories, Remedies, Detox, and Refresher to allow customers to refine their order based on their needs for the day. The options are named in the theme of their category and feature innovative flavor combinations with highlights: Fennel Twist, made with fennel, celery, ginger, lemon, and apple; Sweetox, kale lemon, kiwi, ginger, orange, and apple; and Can’t Beet It, beets, carrots, cucumber, lemon, and apple.

JUICE SHOTS: Like the juices, the shots are designed as riffs on common offerings, exemplified in the Wheat Baby, a wheatgrass shot with pineapple and orange juice; and T-SHOT, turmeric with lemon, honey, and apple.

SMOOTHIES: The Juicy Lounge’s smoothies are light and flavorful with options like: Sunny Tropical, orange, peach, carrot, and yogurt; Green Dream, mango with spinach, banana, and lemon; and Berry Banana, raspberries, strawberries, banana, chia seeds, and almond milk.

Also featured are Açai Bowls and Smoothies made fresh to order including their signature The Juicy Lounge, açai with strawberries, blueberries, banana, coconut flakes, and granola; Hollywood, açai, mango, pineapple, banana, coconut flakes, and granola.

Time to head to 493 9th Avenue, Monday – Sunday: 7 am – 7 pm to get your juice on.

You’ll also get to see a performance and group lesson by World Irish Dance Champion Tyler Shwartz.

For over a century, the Irish Mob, an organized crime syndicate, was an ongoing concern in New York City. Now the one-time Irish enclave of Hell’s Kitchen has become an upscale neighborhood, but most of the spots where the gangs lived and operated are still standing. Learn about a lurid side of the city’s history on this small-group tour of the West Side of Manhattan.

The Brooklyn Deli Where Pastrami is Delectable



It use to be finding fabulous pastrami ($11.95), corned beef ($10.95), knishes, and cheese cake was as simple as walking down the street, then the Jewish deli’s started to disappear.
Now thanks to the Fireman Hospitality Group they are returning. Nestled inside of the old Paramount Building at 1501 Broadway, on the corner of West 43rd Street is the Brooklyn Deli.

The 130-seat restaurant features one of the tenderest pastrami sandwiches with Swiss cheese, butter pickles and Russian dressing, between slices of rye bread. You can also get this with Corned Beef and sauerkraut.

There’s also deep dish pizza’s ($7.95), a fried chicken sandwich ($9.95) and Burgers ($7.95).

Thanks to Eli Marcus and City Guide, I was invited to a concierge event to introduce this deli to the hotel community.
