To Covet is to Love It

When I was a teenager (many moons ago), I discovered that the most elegant nightclubs and restaurants in New York City were French-owned. Now, over 30 years later, the same remains true.

As you enter Covet from the street through enormous doors you are immediately struck by the regal interior. It is an ultra-modern version of the Palace of Versailles, full of a gorgeous hallway of framed mirrors, architecturally designed furniture and valuable art.
 
First, I had dinner. A meal fit for a king – a French King like Louis the XIV, not an English King like Henry the VIII who might be content with plain fish and chips (only joking, or as Bill Maher would say, “I kid the English”). After devouring the best halibut I’ve ever tasted, I followed up with the best fresh fruit cocktail and ice cream dessert imaginable. There must have been a dozen exotic fruits from all over the world chopped into tiny bits with a scoop of rich chocolate ice cream planted in the center. This put me in the mood to explore the lounge below. I didn’t need a crystal ball to tell me this club was done right – the four Swarovski crystal ball light fixtures over the bar told me that. Just a beautiful accent that perfectly complimented the exotic black crocodile wallpaper lining the room (Crocodile Dundee would not have been pleased).
 
The club was so elegant that I thought I had entered the VIP room. Little did I know, that the real VIP room, a Helmut-Newton-inspired S&M dungeon room, was still under construction. The space is so well done, with private alcoves set back for more intimate gatherings, that every table felt special. The surroundings were so plush that if you found the right partner, you might be tempted to make love to them right in the club. I was lucky to have met a beautiful woman who was also in the mood for amore (see pictures below). The passion that we felt emanated from the sexiness of the club, and I long to return for another hot encounter.

Covet is the most beautiful gift from the French since the Statue of Liberty – I just love it.

Life at best is short. PARTY TILL YOU DIE!
