Vogue editors are making so little money they have no choice but to head up to Two Bridges to party.
At least, that’s the only explanation we can think of for why they posted this mysterious little tidbit about the new restaurant Mr. Fong’s on their site today: “Lacking visible signage, a velvet rope, and the booming crowds oft associated with of-the-moment boîtes, it boasts a crew focused on fostering their establishment as the fashionable equivalent of Cheers.” Yes, this tiny, totally nondescript bar in the middle of the one of the dreariest areas of the city has suddenly become the place for models to get away from it all.
Like, seriously, who would have thought?!
According to a Times article about the place in July, the spot is named for real estate manager and power broker, Mr. Fong, who has been helping locals score good apartments in the area for a long time. It’s a sad state of affairs when good brokers are so rare that you have to name your bar after them, but alas, this is New York.
