Show Support for Small Business Saturday!

SHOP SMALL this holiday season! Join millions of shoppers around the country for Small Business Saturday, on November 24th - two days after Thanksgiving.

This year, to raise awareness about the value of shopping locally, BIDs around the city are coming together for the Small Business Saturday Coalition, a citywide campaign to highlight the diversity of small and independent businesses in New York. The Flatiron BID is happy to shine a spotlight on the unique retail opportunities that contribute to the neighborhood character of Flatiron and fellow NYC communities. 

As a Neighborhood Champion, an official American Express designation, the Flatiron BID will highlight events and deals happening in the neighborhood. Check back to FlatironDistrict.NYC next week for exciting opportunities to support local Flatiron businesses. 

Not familiar with Small Business Saturday? The campaign began in 2010 when American Express founded the event to encourage consumers to “Shop Small,” and in 2011, the U.S. Senate passed a resolution officially recognizing Small Business Saturday. Since then, elected officials and community organizations play an important role in supporting the event, a cornerstone of the holiday shopping season. Since Small Business Saturday started, U.S. customers have reported spending an estimated total of $85 billion at independent retailers and restaurants — that's $85 billion over 8 days alone.

Flatiron Small Business Owner? If you are a small business owner in the Flatiron District and would like to learn more about becoming a participating business on Small Business Saturday, please contact the Flatiron BID at info@flatironbid.org. Additionally, the BID has marketing materials to share with businesses like storefront logos, social media posts, or website banners to drive consumers to their stores. Eligible businesses may utilize the Shop Small Studio to quickly create personalized marketing materials.

BID Assessment Increase Hearing

At 10 am on November 14th, a public hearing will be held in the City Council Committee Room, 2nd Floor, located at City Hall in Manhattan. The purpose of the hearing is to consider a local law which authorizes an increase in the annual amount to be expended in the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership Business Improvement District (BID).
 
The BID currently has one of the lowest assessment rates of all Manhattan BIDs, and this proposed increase is only the second since its inception in 2006. The proposed assessment increase of roughly 4.5 cents, from 11 cents per commercial square foot to 15.5 cents, is to be phased in over three fiscal years. Rising operating expenses, coupled with expanded programming and public improvement projects, compel the BID to consider this increase in order to maintain the high level of service that has proven to be so vital to the success of the Flatiron District.

New Neighbor: Benno

The Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership is glad to announce the opening of Benno, the eponymous fine-dining restaurant featuring Mediterranean cuisine. The menu focuses on the area where Italy and France meet at Liguria and Provence, while highlighting additional regions along the Mediterranean coast. The beverage program explores the unique wines and spirits from these provinces, with options for both cocktail and wine pairings that complement the arc of the cuisine. 

Located in the landmarked hotel The Evelyn, the historic space—which dates back to 1905—was meticulously restored by the award-winning Parts and Labor Design. Featuring a rich color palette of deep reds, blues, and greens; custom furniture with brass and marble accents; and a 14’ domed skylight above the main dining room, the Art Deco-inspired space blends the grandeur of “old New-York” with a modern aesthetic reflective of the new take on fine dining the team is looking to achieve. The design, cuisine, and service at Benno all aim to create a sense of elegance and refinement, but also fun and celebration.

Grounded in classic French technique, the cuisine represents Chef Benno’s three decades of experience working in and running some of the world’s most prestigious fine-dining restaurants, as well as his continuous pursuit of knowledge, inspiration, and evolution as a Chef. Says Benno, “We wanted to challenge ourselves to go beyond Italy and France, pushing our own boundaries as we explore the diverse flavors, ingredients, and spirits of the Mediterranean region.” The menu is separated into four sections: Vegetables & Grains, Seafood & Meat, Pastas, and Mains, and guests are invited to select three, four, or five courses. 

Highlights include an Olive Oil Braised Abalone with mushroom, crouton, capers, lemon, and parsley vinaigrette; Spaghetti Di Grano Arso with clams, sea urchin, and scallions; and Long Island Pekin Duck foie gras with turnips and pistachio-date brik. Dessert, from Pastry Chef Lindsey Bittner, include Pear with goat cheese, phyllo saffron, and almonds; Flan with rosemary, poached cranberries, and brown butter gelato; and Babka with dark chocolate, pistachio halva, and coffee cardamom gelato.

Benno's beverage program is composed by Wine Director Aaron Von Rock (formerly of Lincoln Ristorante) and is meant to mirror the geographic scope of Chef Benno's cuisine. The 250-label wine list includes a robust section showcasing “The Mediterranean Tableau,” with both classic regional wines and unique finds from France, Italy, and Spain. To add a bit of fun and flair—and incorporate a collection of distinct older wines sourced by Von Rock—the list includes additional Feature Sections such as “Nebbiolo Season,” The Brunello Library,” and “Bordeaux’s Great ’05 Vintage.” Similarly, cocktails incorporate the distinct spirits found across the Mediterranean region, including several barrel-aged preparations that help harmonize complex flavors. Benno also offers the unique option for both wine or cocktail pairings, guided by the beverage team, to complement any meal. 

Designed by Parts and Labor Design, the main dining room is defined by a dramatic 14’ diameter skylight from which hangs a multi-part Art Deco-inspired light fixture made of brass, serving as a sculptural element within the space. Custom furniture includes tables with brass and marble accents and deep blue leather seats with brass detailing, all of which contribute to an elevated dining experience. To the right is a 10-seat bar topped in dark honed marble and lined with plush custom bar stools. The stunning 30-seat Private Dining Room was the space most preserved during the renovation process, with original wood paneling, molding, and a fireplace that has been transformed into a hidden liquor display cabinet. 

Benno is the third and final project to open in The Evelyn Hotel this year, marking the culmination of Chef Benno’s life-long dedication to the hospitality profession. He notes, “Five years ago I saw a unique opportunity to do everything I’ve ever done in my career in one space in this beautiful landmarked building—a Roman-inspired pastry shop (Leonelli Focacceria), a casual Italian trattoria (Leonelli Taberna), and a fine-dining French Mediterranean restaurant. 

Benno opens Thursday, November 8th. Dinner service is available Tuesday through Saturday from 5:30 pm to 10 pm.

The École, a French-American School with an International Perspective

The unassuming façade of the building at 206 Fifth Avenue may give little clue as to what lies inside, that is, unless you look up and see the colorful flags proudly waving on which are written the words ‘the École’. Anyone who has a little knowledge of French would then know that this is a school. But this establishment is not just any school, and it did not start out as The École. It is an international, French-American school that was founded in 2009 under the name École Internationale de New York (or EINY for short). Last year, with the 10th anniversary of the school around the corner, it was decided that it was time for a change.

New Name, New Logo, New Identity

Many independent schools go through a re-branding every 10 to 15 years to reassess their identity and to take a closer look at the direction in which they are heading. The École’s new look is meant, in part, to reflect the trendiness of the Flatiron District, which is home to both its campuses (as well as a myriad of start-ups, fashion agencies, and hip restaurants). Many of the school’s families also live in the neighborhood, which enhances the tight-knit community feel of The École.

Although the school’s look has gone through this recent makeover, the new name—The École—with its English article and French noun, underlines what has not changed: namely, the bilingual nature of the French-American school. Students at The École do not learn two languages; they learn in two languages, French and English. From nursery onward, each class has both a French and an American teacher, who work together to make cohesive lesson plans. Some math classes, social studies, and science lessons are even taught in both languages simultaneously, allowing the students to make connections between the two different programs. Mandarin is introduced in 3rd grade. Spanish can also be selected in Middle School.

This year, as The École celebrates its 10th anniversary, another change is in the works. The school, which now has 215 students from nursery/maternelle through 8th grade has outgrown its second location on East 22nd Street, which houses most of the elementary school, the middle school, and the administrative offices. They will not be moving far though, as the new campus will need to be within walking distance of the maternelle campus on Fifth Avenue.

Although The École will continue to grow, the goal is to have no more than two classes at each grade level in order to maintain the quality of personalized instruction, its innovative program, and its community feel—all essential parts of its identity as a small international school in the heart of NYC. That is one feature that will not be changing anytime soon.

The École is hosting open houses in November, December, and January. For more details, please visit The École's Calendar of Events.

Flatiron Foodies: Scampi NYC's Malfaldini Scampi with Shrimp, Parsley, Butter & Lemon

Chef-Owner PJ Calapa's Scampi NYC (30 West 18th Street) is a southern Italian-inspired neighborhood restaurant with a focus on seafood. “The malfadini scampi is my reimagined take on the classic iteration of the Italian dish. I like to keep it simple, using malfaldini pasta instead of the traditional linguine, and tossing it with white wine, garlic, crustacean stock, and chili flakes. I then add in some fresh shrimp to cook in butter along with the pasta, and finish it by seasoning with freshly chopped pasley, lemon juice, and salt to taste. Top it off with a little toasted bread crumbs for added texture and voila, you have a simple, yet flavorful scampi dish."

Malfaldini "Scampi" with Shrimp, Parsley, Butter & Lemon

Serves: 4 - 6

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Pound dry malfaldini pasta 
  • 1 TBL shaved garlic
  • 1/4 TSP chili flakes
  • 1/2 Cup chopped Gulf shrimp
  • 3 TBL white wine
  • 1/2 Cup crustacean stock
  • 1 TBL butter
  • 4 TBL extra virigin olive oil
  • 2 TBL chopped parsley
  • 2 TBL toasted panko breadcrumbs

Instructions

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil, and heavily salt the water. Add dry pasta and cook according to package instructions.
  • In a large saute pan, toast garlic and chili flakes in 2 TBL of olive oil. Once the garlic is nearly golden brown, deglaze the pan by turning off the heat and adding the white wine. Add the crustacean stock and bring to a boil.
  • Add pasta to the pan and toss. The starch from the pasta will thicken the stock and coat the pasta.
  • Add the chopped shrimp, continue to toss pasta in the pan, and once shrimp begins to cook, add butter and remaining 2 TBL of olive oil.
  • Finish the pasta with the chopped parsley, lemon juice, and salt to taste.
  • Plate the pasta individually, top with toasted panko bread crumbs, and serve immediately.

Flatiron Partnership and Van Alen Institute Announce Winning Holiday Installation Design: Happy

The Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership and Van Alen Institute unveiled the winner of the fifth annual Flatiron Public Plaza Holiday Design Competition—Happy by Studio Cadena—a temporary installation in the heart of the Flatiron District. Happy will be the centerpiece of the Partnership’s seventh annual holiday program and a highly visible landmark in this thriving New York City neighborhood.

“We all wish each other happiness during the holidays. This installation physically manifests this well wishing to all who visit Flatiron,” said Benjamin Cadena, Founder and Principal of Studio Cadena. “In our otherwise bleak social and political context, it aspires to carve a small and more positive space in the city—it offers a warm embrace during the cold winter months.”

The installation features 24 softly shaped transparent vinyl screens that drape down from an open frame to inscribe an intimate collective space within. Its rich colored surface projects a highly visible and memorable figure from a distance, and up close, filters views inside and out by infusing the surrounding context in a rich, saturated glow. Gently swaying in the breeze, it shimmers and reflects while it casts long colored shadows in the low light of late fall and early winter. Happy is a simple device to make you stop, wonder, and most importantly, smile.

The installation will remain on view to the public on the Flatiron North Public Plaza at Broadway, Fifth Avenue, and 23rd Street, through the holidays as part of the Partnership’s “23 Days of Flatiron Cheer” programming. The installation is permitted through NYC DOT Art and is open to the public daily, weather permitting, from November 19, 2018 through January 1, 2019.

The closed-call competition began in June 2018, when the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership and Van Alen Institute—a 124-year-old design not-for-profit that produces innovative competitions, programs, and communications to make cities better places—invited eight design and architecture firms to submit proposals. Invited firms were: Agency—Agency; Brandt : Haferd; MODU; N H M D; Office III; P.R.O.; Studio Cadena; and Wolfgand & Hite.

A jury with expertise across the worlds of design and public art, including representatives from the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership and Van Alen Institute’s board of trustees, reviewed the proposals.

“Our holiday installations have become a destination for those who live in, work in, or visit Flatiron during the holiday season, and take part in our annual ’23 Days of Flatiron Cheer’ celebration,” said Jennifer Brown, Executive Director of the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership. “Happy is animated, fun and whimsical, imbuing the spirit of the season and what makes our neighborhood so special this time of year.We are proud to partner with Van Alen Institute and Studio Cadena and invite all New Yorkers – and holiday guests – to visit Flatiron this season!”

“In a relatively small way, Happy demonstrates the huge impact that design can have on daily life,” said David van der Leer, Executive Director of Van Alen Institute. “By expressing a positive emotion in a public space, Studio Cadena’s delightful installation invites people to take a moment to consider the joy of being in the big, busy city during the holiday season. Congratulations to the design team and thank you to our partners in realizing this creative vision for everyone’s enjoyment.”

“We look forward to watching people get surprised and delighted when they come upon this imaginative installation in the Flatiron Plaza,” said NYC DOT Assistant Commissioner of Design + Art + Wayfinding Wendy Feuer. “The firms selected for the Flatiron BID's annual holiday installation find ever inventive ways to interpret the season, adding to the City’s magic at this time of year.”

Studio Cadena is based in Brooklyn. The Happy project team includes Silman (structural engineer) and YOUNGBUK Art Services LLC (fabricator/installer).

Sponsored by the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership, Happy and the accompanying programming “23 Days of Flatiron Cheer” are made possible with generous support from Presenting Sponsor Meringoff Properties and Supporting Sponsors Sony Square NYC and 212 Fifth Avenue.
