The third of Zeb Stewart aka Mr. Williamsburg’s impressive drinking and feeding hole portfolio, (think Union Pool and Hotel Delmano), Cafe Colette is the perfect mix of a polished yet informal aesthetic. The bistro, which adopts a mix of French inspired American cuisine, combines painted floors with cement tables and brightly colored walls adorned with quirky black and white photographs, to create a space that feels equally appropriate for lunch, brunch, dinner or drinks.

There are few things in life more satisfying than the first bite of something truly delicious. There are few things in life more comforting than when that first bite is full of cheese. Be it cow, sheep, goat, or a mixture of all three, cheese comes in many shapes and sizes, tastes and textures, and makes an appearance on more than its fair share of menus in some form.
National Grilled Cheese Day is Friday, April 12th, and to celebrate, here are our Top Five best cheese picks from around the city.
A mentally unstable man walks into a room full of strangers...thus begins Bullet Catch, a riveting show written and performed by Rob Drummond and directed by David Overend at 59E59 Theaters. The 75 minute show just had its US premiere and will be running through April 21st. The bullet catch is an infamous magic trick, so dangerous that Houdini himself refused to even attempt it. It has claimed the lives of at least 12 illusionists, assistants, and spectators since its conception in 1613. The trick goes as this—a volunteer is told to aim a gun at the magician's face and pull the trigger. If all goes well, the bullet will be caught between the magician's teeth. If all doesn't go well...well, you can imagine the mess. Rob Drummond tells the tale of this epic piece of magic, all while entertaining with mind reading, levitation, and heartfelt storytelling. The tension rises as the show draws nearer to the end and audience members are anxious to witness the show's notorious finale.

With descriptions more often found on the back of a wine bottle than a bar of chocolate, Mast Brothers gourmet chocolate is no average candy bar. Available in 19 flavors and split into two categories, Single Estates Origins and Blends & Pairings, expect to taste the unexpected. From Vanilla and Smoke to Black Truffle and Moho River, no bar comes in with under 70% of organic cocao harvested from small farm cooperatives dotted around South America, and no, none of the bars come with a milk or white chocolate option as, to the gourmet chocolatier, either would be cocao sacrilege.
