Your new best friend
Fashion label Friends With Frank is known for minimalist basics, stylish outerwear and trans-seasonal pieces. And now you can find them at a location in the city, thanks to a new seven-month residency at Emporium. The pop-up makes it easier to try on garments, find the right size, touch and feel the different fabrics and shop from the brand in a new way.

Up in flames
Crepes Suzette has joined Gimlet’s crave-worthy cheeseburger on the restaurant's late night menu. From 10pm on Friday and Saturday nights, diners will be able to order the traditional French dessert of crepes with a caramel sauce mixed with orange juice, Grand Marnier and cognac. As is traditional in France, the dish will be lit up in flames, table-side.
