Summer’s here, and depending on where you’re coming from, that might mean cold noodles, spiked Popsicles, or just the simple pleasure of sitting outside drinking cold beer. Or maybe a combination of all three. In this week’s issue, Rob and Robin introduce Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s latest effort, Matsugen, a soba-noodle restaurant in the space that was 66. In the annual Summer Guide, we find the city’s new-wave Popsicles; learn all about selecting, cooking, and eating lobsters; and wash it all down at a new beer garden in Williamsburg.
Sit back and enjoy the summer. And the Summer Issue. Photo: Kang Kim
