This is heartbreaking. There are no other words for it. Fedora meant so much to me and so many people. I remember very clearly receiving an email from @gabestulman 4 years ago while riding the train to work asking if I was interested in the Fedora General Manager position. I literally yelled "fuck YES" on the train, scaring quite a few passengers. This was the place I knew making a career change was the right decision and that hospitality was where I was meant to be. It's a place unlike any other. Whenever friends or family from home came to visit I took them here and the response was always, "Wow, this place is so New York." And it was for 100 years. We all made so many memories here that will never be forgotten. Im gonna go have myself a good cry now. Love you forever and ever, Fedora. #fedoranyc #mabartels #blacksquirrel #barbaraminton #woooo
This post sucks. Like 10,000 suns of suck. I wish there was a better way to harness the words, but there’s not. There’s only gratitude for what lived inside the walls, and how those memories, and all of the wonderful people, continue to live on through us. * 239 West 4th Street was a magical place, and my brother @gabestulman and his wife Gina gave me a new life I never imagined. And we made it nearly 10 years, which is a tremendous accomplishment. * Trying not to cry. * Anyone that has ever spent time with us at @fedoranyc knows how special a place it was, and there are too many people to mention, but thank you. Thank you for letting us take care of you. Especially on those cold, rainy, or snowy nights, when sitting at that bar made the world stop - if only for a sweet little while. * 🐿 Love to everyone and hope you’re all safe and well. * 💔 I get the sense many of us in this industry and well beyond are exhausted right now. I admit I am exhausted. And anxious. And stressed. And often blue. No day comes easy. But I can promise one thing: Dear 2020, I am going to eat you alive in 2021. We are all going to eat you alive.

Loved this recent commission of a West Village favorite. In my opinion, they make some of the best cocktails in nyc! #fedoranyc #specialtycocktails #westvillage #fridaynightvibes #nycrestaurant #barsinnyc #nycbucketlist #infatuationnyc #foodnyc #ambiance #watercolorillustration #restaurantpainting #supportnyc #jeffreysgrocery #westvillagelove #nycfoodgals #oldfashionedcocktail #negroni #martinitime 🍸 #hospitality #happycookinghospitality
As long as we’re allowed to make them, we’ll make sure the Black Squirrel is here for you.
Long Bone Short Rib x Soy Glaze x Pea Shoots. Just doing Monday things
Come celebrate Thursday!
Sundays are for fish. And few fish are as delish as our Pollock with curried squash, carrots, and bok choy!
Feels like spring! Time for a drink!
FEDORA: There are no words. My friends and I never fail whenever we order Cote de beouf anytime it’s on any menu, but this one wins the new title. I couldn’t have the duck fat fried rice that hugged this gorgeous piece of beef, but you gluten free only followers would have been able to bury your face into this dish. Also, the staff tried extra hard and made sure I was good with my meal - the chef and waiter both triple checked many things to make sure I was safe and happy!! Thank you, @fedoranyc . And Happy Birthday to the lovely @rumpuncha ! #glutenfree #paleo #imissfriedrice #grainfree #nyceats #nyceeeeeats #fedoranyc

Can you believe it’s going to be 66 degrees Fahrenheit this weekend? Bonkers. Anyway, this is the black bass crudo. It’s delicious and perfect for unseasonably warm weather.
Don’t know about you, but I need a vacation from my vacation. Come have a drink and dinner with us! It’s the weekend!
Dinner. Is. Served.
For New Year’s Eve: Chips and Dip — Homemade Potato Chips and Caviar Seven Layer Dip. Yup.

It’s Thursday! Come in for a Squirrel!
It’s pork chop weather, so come eat a pork chop.
Who else can’t get enough of #HeirloomTomatoes this season? #🍅 They’re at their peak of ripeness & flavor so I can’t resist ordering them. Loved this salad version w/ summer squash & trout roe by Chef Jin Kang @knifexfork at @gabestulman ’s modern speakeasy @fedoranyc in the #WestVillage ! It’s so vibrant and delicious like the rest of his menu! 👌 . #jeaniuseats #fedoranyc #heirloomtomatosalad #ilovetomatoes #tomatosalad #farmtotable #seasonalcuisine #westvillageeats

This lovely gal is my dear friend, Gina. She and her husband, Gabe, own the best restaurants in Manhattan. Not like white tablecloth, fancy-pants spots, but the kind you want to go to every night. Every. Single. Night. Even before I became wildly biased, Mike and I loved #josephleonard #jeffreysgrocery #fedoranyc . If you are looking for the quintessential NY neighborhood restaurant, go to happycookingnyc.com and pick any of them. Daytime drinks (and the burger! ) @barsardinenyc and @fairfaxnyc highly recommended. AND now they have the coolest new restaurant in NY — @simonandthewhale 🐳🍸. Word is out but get there soon before the rest of this town. Okay, my gush-gram❤️ is complete.
"Hey There, Thanks for reading, you're probably on the train by now? It's always this time of year, I feel I should be somewhere else but truth be told I wouldn't want to be anywhere else during Thanksgiving than in New York City. It's a little calmer than normal but there's that feeling that I'm a about to meet someone new who will change my life forever. I'll be in Connecticut for the break, that part is good, I will see my family, my old boyfriend/current boyfriend, but truth be told it's not working. We've tried a few times, I'm still young in animal years for crying out loud! I feel that there's more to life than just settling, I feel I need experiences, a few more moments that will define my next 10 years. It will be like the new year when I get back. I'm striving to start again, start anew, meet someone new, that is my objective and that's why I'll be so thankful at Thanksgiving that I can make these decisions! Last week I was strolling past @fedoranyc on West 4th, I stood out the front, I didn't go in, just stood still, looked at the amazing stoop and neon sign and said to myself, this is my new new. I could see through its steamed windows, the laughs, the heated debates, the chinking of glasses, the undergroundness of it all, like I said, I don't need this, I want this, random adventureness! Ok, I'm rambling now. Have a great Thanksgiving. See you on Monday! Love always, your ❤️ friend, your partner in crimes yet to be committed, see you girl! This time!" _____________________________________________ #wildwestvillage #westvillage #westvillagenyc #fedoranyc #speakeasy #thanksgiving #letter #home #trainride #adventure #postcard #neon #cocktails #the2ofus ____________________________________________
Sometimes all you need on a NYC winter night is friends + squid confit + a mezcal-elderflower-ginger-infused glass of magic called a Lil’ Smokey surrounded by the warmth of an intimate candle-lit lounge where the barkeep become keepers in a city of ✨ 🥃🐙🎩
