Huey Lewis once sang "It's hip to be square", but realizing hipsters aren't known for loving Sports or Working For A Living, the team behind Pera decided to check their Midtown roots at the door and wil' out downtown-style. With a menu overhauled by the peripatetic Ryan Skeen, the multifaceted space includes a bar area lit by a "forest" of caged Edison bulbs, a massive garden beset with fire pits and ice sculptures, and even roof access for private parties, as taking in The View in public is embarrassing.
