Clubplanet Pick of the Week: Covet Restaurant and Lounge

Clubplanet Pick of the Week: Covet Restaurant and Lounge

The moment you become involved in New York City nightlife you realize that extravagant venues are nowhere near endangered here. Whether they’re large or small, the city is simply choking with velvet ropes, glittering staircases, lush décor, vibrant lighting. While each destination has its own vibe, time passes and you start to feel like you have déjà vu – and not because of too many cocktails. Enter Covet, one of Manhattan’s newest lounges, that sheds a whole new light on nightlife.

Owners Eric Milon and Andre Hnatyszak opened Covet’s lavish doors to the public in April of 2010 with the intent of giving patrons “European class mixed with New York City sophistication,” a goal they clearly surpassed. Covet is a bi-level paradise of elegance, draped with furs and adorned by art. Nowhere to be seen is the icy, impersonal hardness that seems to dominate many venues. The warm color palette and plentiful use of wood makes guests instantly feel as if they are a part of the decadence. Covet is clearly meant to be intimate – the club has its own private intimate rooms with, yes, mirrored ceilings.

The luxury doesn’t stop at the décor. Open one of Covet’s menus and you are instantly swept away to a food lover’s wonderland. Start your meal out with the popular lobster brulee, or if you have simpler tastes, try the shishito peppers with yuzu salt. For entrees, the verdict is in – you won’t go wrong with the wild boar tenderloin or the diver scallops. And of course, Covet doesn’t skimp with dessert, from the fresh fruit and berries to the molten chocolate cake, there’s something to suit every taste.

Of course, Covet is not only meant for dining. At 10PM, like many New York City hotspots, Covet metamorphoses into a wildly popular nightclub featuring the trendiest of events. For example, tonight Samantha Ronson guest DJs the Friday night party, or you might choose to stop in tomorrow for Sally Shan’s party featuring DJ Alan Liao. Still unsure of how you’ll spend your Halloween weekend? Covet’s taken care of that for you as well with Rose Shan hosting a costume party on October the 30th and a “City of the Gods” themed costume party featuring DJ Suss on October the 31st. Whatever you choose to do, you won’t be disappointed – Covet may be sinful, but it’s also so sweet.
