Studio B Raises Its Rooftop to New Culinary Heights

When we brought you the lowdown on Studio B’s rooftop, it was uncertain whether they’d have summer barbecues, à la Delancey. Now with the help of food sponsor Bedford Cheese Shop, they’re trumping their sister bar by bringing in the likes of Avery Wittkamp (pastry chef at Marlow & Sons), Gabe McMackin (formerly of Blue Hill at Stone Barns), Lesley Stockton (executive chef of Dram Shop), and Heather Meldrom (formerly of Craftsteak) to cook to the sounds of resident D.J.'s Terry Diabolik and Never Forget, as well as guest spinners. The first of the monthly fêtes is next Wednesday. Hipsters, we’ll give you this gift: That’s the day the Diamond, nearby, has its Nintendo 64 Mario Kart competitions. (Update: Not anymore, alas.) Now go.
