Quick Hits: Bowery Hotel Service, Candy Cafe, Trouble at Tailor

Some fun Friday tidbits that we wanted to share with our first ever edition of Quick Hits.

1. Following up on the roof party at the Bowery, a commenter notes, "Now if only the staff at the Bowery would lose the pathetic attitude. The hostess at Gemma is only out done by the Einstein managing Bowery's outdoor patio." A little rough, but we know the feeling. Ordering a drink inside that hotel is a guaranteed adventure. And still no music.

2. A Little Birdy files a report from the recently rejiggered Candy Cafe, saying, "My girlfriend arranged to host a little early evening birthday celebration for me at the Candy Cafe. We had about 18 people for wine and small plates before we went out for the night. It worked out great." Glad to hear it, and sorry we weren't able to attend. We love birthdays.

3. Sam Mason's plan to craft brown butter whiskey sure sounds sweet to us, but are we ever going to get a chance to try it? A commenter throws some doubt on the fire, saying, "Inside contractor sites serious financial problems due to time overruns. Place may never open unless stable backer steps to the fore."

Tailor is beginning to have that sort of doomed Sasha feeling to it.

He may be a hell of a pastry chef, but what a shoemaker of a businessman Sam Mason turned out to be.

Of course he needs more cash...guess he didn't think forward enough beyond his uber-hipster persona to include someone with both deep enough pockets and enough experience to craft a solid business plan, and thought his boy genius would carry him to the top of the NYC restaurant scene.

NOTE TO MASON: that's why Wily had Vongerichten and Phil Suarez in his corner when he opened wd-50.

Get a life, you hipster douche-bag! Maybe next time you won't spend a fortune on advance PR and waste big bucks splashing your hideous mug and oh-so-cool full sleeve all over the internet before you have the expenses for your actual physical plant covered...it's all about COOKING and THE FOOD and most decidely NOT your HIPSTER DOUCHE-BAG IMAGE, douche-bag!

Have fun paying off all your creditors and going to work for someone else again.

Funkjester, perhaps you should be careful who you call a douchebag, because I'm detecting an odor of vinegar and roses coming from your direction, not Sam's.

You have absolutely no insight into what's really going on behind the scenes over at Tailor. My advice to you is that you shut the fuck up and perhaps reread the quote in your "About Me" section of your Blogger Profile.

Idiot.

Hey Fuckjester
Nice Bio Homo, When's your buisness opening?

Funkjester is simply and honestly verbalizing what many of us have suspected. Though the personal rants, uncalled for...Funkjester is clearly onto something. Fact is that Tailor is yet to open and delayed by one full year. This must be costing a fortune--not to mention staff. Have they a stipend budget to retain essential kitchen personnel? Perhaps fewer "Dinner with the Bands" and more focus on getting the business up and running will suffice. I haven't yet given up. You can do it, Sam.
