Summer In The City | Travel

Who to watch, where to go, what to eat and more.

The New Dominique Ansel Dessert to Obsess Over

No more waking up at 5:00 a.m. for a chance at scoring the elusive cronut at Dominque Ansel’s SoHo bakery. Now, as an “after-school special,” Ansel is offering a Chocolate Chip Cookie Milk Shot straight out of the oven and available for customers at 3:00 p.m. Though we think it might be wise to start queueing up right after lunch.

Ai Weiwei at Brooklyn Museum
The Chinese artist and activist arrives at the Brooklyn Museum this spring with a new exhibit. “Ai Weiwei: According to What?” will feature his signature large-scale works made out of everything from backpacks to ancient pottery, highlighting the troubling human rights violations of his native country. Don’t miss “S.A.C.R.E.D,” a haunting series of fiberglass dioramas, which re-creates scenes from the 81 days that Weiwei was imprisoned for alleged tax evasion in 2011.  April 18–August 10

When the quest for a Long Island restaurant serving exceptional food without the fanfare of white tablecloths proved futile, Rafe Worthington and his partner, Marina Rutherfurd,opened Station last year in the hamlet of East Quogue. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, the restaurant offers an easygoing approach to fine dining, with dinner served in a cozy indoor space or on outdoor picnic tables laden with mason jars of wildflowers and succulents. Argentinian executive chef Lucia Soria’s farm-to-table menu offers classics such as tuna ceviche and pork Milanese and refreshes recipes with accents of citrus and mint. And while her South American background is evident in the flavors, more than anything, dishes are light and seasonal. “Much of what we use—from some of the wines to the watercress—comes from Long Island,” says Worthington. Building on last year’s success, Station will offer weekend brunch and an expanded outdoor dining and bar area, where mixologist Chris Barry creates festive cocktails known as “Jollifications.” Also on the docket this summer is a variety of live dance music, from a five-piece Cuban son band to DJ Carlos Meija, encouraging guests to linger late into the evening.

Belmont Stakes
The third leg of the Triple Crown—by far the area's biggest horse-racing event—takes place in Elmont (yes, that's Elmont, just east of Queens—not Belmont, the Bronx neighborhood), New York. There's a full day of eight stakes races, starting at 11:35am, and it costs only $10 to sit in the grandstand. Most notably, California Chrome—assured that he'll be allowed to race with nasal strips—could win horse racing's Triple Crown by finishing first at Belmont, which would make him the first to do so since Affirmed in 1978.
