Black Derby — 310 West 4th Street

Seth Leifer and his partners were eager to open a “NYC bistro for the locals.” They wanted it to feature a cross between French and American food. “Our chef uses my mom’s chicken soup recipe, but we also offer a terrific steak frites.” Opening in early 2017, the restaurant is managing to attract both older and younger crowds. “They are mixing seamlessly with one another,” according to Seth. “Everyone who comes in is interesting, with an engaging story to share. People seem to have a genuine understanding of what it takes to live in Manhattan, no matter their age.”
