American

Staying true to NYC's last "unadulterated" 'hood's disparate denizens (from Chinatown dwellers, to gritty artists to...teeth-gritting partygoers), APL's tunnel-like entrance leads to a sky-lit dining room reminiscent of a 3D abstract painting and filled with leather upholstery pulled from a '30s Bugatti, an illuminated glass "birdcage", and ceiling-draped bronze sneakers. From "fried pickles to caviar", the breadth of culinary influences are evident in dishes like herb-buttered roasted chicken, chowder-esque Clam Gratin w/ yuzu & ginger, and smokey ham croquettes with "Womanchego" -- apparently all of the man cheese has already decamped for the Jersey Shore.
