On the radar: Openings and events around the wold
New York: Preserve 24 is a Lower East Side eatery set to be the permanent home of an iceberg. Artists Brian Goggin and Peter Cole put a floor-to-ceiling bird cage in the dining room. It’s empty now, but is primed to be a chilled display case for ice harvested from a Greenlandic glacier.
Boston: Find a place in the sun at Rooftop @ Revere, an open-air lounge at the Revere Hotel that brings a Miami living to Bean Town. It’s the ultimate summer hangout with chaise longues, cabanas and a tropical menu. Entry is free for guests of Revere Hotel Boston Common or $30 (U.S.).
Paris: Le Foodist uses storytelling and games at its Once Upon a Table events to help guests understand French culinary culture. From $158, the five course repast is served under the tutelage of a local host and a sommelier and served at a communal table on a barge near Notre Dame Cathedral.
Sydney: QT Sydney’s Designer Baby Package helps families who don’t want to lug their fancy baby accoutrements half way around the world. Rooms have an ergonomic Danish crib by Leander, and Karim Rashid’s self-warming iiamo Go feeding bottle, which is yours to keep. From $453 with a two-night minimum.
