{Giveaway} $50 G/C to Covet Restaurant & Lounge


Brings a Little Bit of St. Tropez to

Midtown Manhattan

137 E. 55th Street * 212-223-2829

Midtown Manhattan is embodied by glass and steel high-rise buildings, loud sirens, and a barrage of yellow taxi cabs cascading up and down Lexington Avenue. It’s hard for New Yorkers to imagine a sanctuary in the midst of all this commotion. Situated in the heart of Manhattan, Covet Restaurant & Lounge blends old world elegance and new world opulence where guests are easily transported the moment they walk through the door. The unassuming façade of Covet belies its impressive, bi-level interior. Presiding over this new chic upscale restaurant and lounge is the man behind Miami’s nightlife resurgence, Eric Milon and entrepreneur Andre Hnatyszak. This powerhouse team has set a new standard of elegant dining with a world-class menu created by former Bruno Jamais Restaurant Executive Chef John Keller; and has redefined the New York City nightlife experience.

This bi-level venue is part restaurant and part nightclub. “Covet exudes St. Tropez and St. Barth’s glamour,” says Mr. Hnatyszak. “The mix in ambiance is designed for a well-heeled crowd attracting celebrities, models, politicians, foodies, the financial set and fashionistas. It’s where Gordon Gekko meets Devil Wears Prada." The upstairs restaurant can seat approximately 70 patrons and the downstairs nightclub can accommodate close to 300 people until 4am Monday through Saturday. Covet is also the ideal space for private events or parties of any size.

Inspired by the luxe, rustic elegance of the Alpine après ski lodges of St. Moritz, Covet effortlessly blends the best of both worlds: the sophistication and charm of uptown and ultra-sleek vibe of downtown. Covet's main dining room features large Zeppelin chandeliers while the walls are adorned with colorful oil paintings by renowned artist Robert Lambert. Downstairs, haute Alpine coziness is combined with all the amenities New York City chic has to offer, and this is done through the harmonious pairing of distressed wood with embossed "croc-skin" paneling, and chrome accents.

If you are seeking a bevy of young beauties and deep-pocketed bankers, Covet is the perfect after work destination for New Yorkers. The unique and eclectic atmosphere at this Midtown lounge makes it the place to be seen. Its prime location in New York's business center is one of Covet’s biggest draws as well as the swanky ambiance, world-class DJs, plush couches and exotic drink specials.

Guests’ palettes will be stimulated with a menu of eclectic Asian-Mediterranean cuisine, featuring signature dishes such as Hamachi Duo, Lobster Brulee, and Wild Boar Tenderloin. Famed mixologist Orson Salicetti has created a menu of concoctions at Covet that incorporates sensual ingredients that embody the venue's sophisticated elegance. Offering excess in a glass, Salicetti is shaking things up with the $160 cocktail: The Icarus - includes Louis XIII cognac, which retails for $1,600 a bottle – exclusively at Covet.

Hidden below the main floor, Covet's intimate cocktail lounge stays true to its elegant upscale vibe. The lounge features sounds by resident DJ Evalicious, the famed '90s French-Canadian model discovered by designer Jean-Paul Gaultier. Spinning an eclectic mix of musical genres ranging from electronic pop to indie mashups, her music style stays true to Covet's international influence. For those seeking a little discretion and a retreat from the high-energy crowd, guests can escape into one of the many roped-off enclaves that populate the space.
