Concept: Cracked chocolate leather walls and black slate doors and sinks make it seem as if you’re inside of someone’s oversize Fendi handbag.
Privacy: In the men’s room, the urinals are wedged into a narrow space that may leave you standing a little too close to your neighbor.
Amenities: Ceiling speakers (not in use when we visited), a bottle of air freshener on the sink, and a shelf for candles and peppermint breath mints. When the lounge opens, we suspect a bathroom attendant will take things up a notch.
Drawbacks: The exposed pipes under the sink are a bit of an aesthetic boo-boo.
Strategy: If you’re dining with an animal-rights activist, direct him to the leather-free facilities at the adjacent Dream Lounge. And for that matter, steer clear of the Berkshire-pork porterhouse.
