On the Town

I had a hankering for a somewhat cultural evening on Friday, so we set about finding a good restaurant with an interesting menu, and planned on heading to the Art Party after dinner. We ended up at Django, which is in the heart of Midtown. They’re going for a Gypsy/Afro-Cuban mode here, and it works.

This spot had a nice vibe in the dining area ó there are two floors, one for dining and one for lounging. The dÈcor is artsy, with odd but very cool and colorful pieces on the walls. Their wine selection was so-so and their menu was small; however, what we ordered was pretty delicious. If you can eat seafood (unlike me) you’ll probably have a veritable feast. The salad I ordered actually had field greens instead of iceberg (!) and the thin-crust pizza I got was quite good. What struck me most was the friendly attitude of the staff. Everyone was extremely pleasant (and not phony), and the service was excellent.

Unfortunately, we had to run just as the music started to get pumping ñ Django turns into a club after about 10PM, and they have a lower floor called ìThe Belly.î This ìBellyî is where the nightlife action takes place and DJs spin or bands play. I did get to see the downstairs area and it looked pretty hip, so Iíll definitely check it out some time. You might want to head down there to The Rhythm Den this Friday to hear DJs Alex King and Levi spin some deep house.
