New York, NY (address and info)
Savelii Archipenko and Hecho
With 600 seats over three levels, five distinct dining zones, and 26,000 square feet, URBO (short for “urban bohemian”) is a beho (short for behemoth -- all the kids are saying it). Despite its dimensions, URBO’s design is distinctly artisanal, with reclaimed subway tile and wood, hand-hammered finishes and museum-worthy artifacts like a paymaster’s office from an antique railroad station, salvaged fire escapes, and antique radios. Open kitchens, a glass elevator and a garden-like loft area root it firmly in the present.
Highlight: The ground floor’s mini, fully functioning Rosenwach water tower. Selfie like a giant.
