A Great Bar Chef Moves South OR Sneak Peak at new Hot Lounge

Now that you’ve digested my last post (no big deal if you haven’t), I finally have a new one to share with you.  Last week I attended a going-away party for a dear friend of mine.  He’s been in the business for years, and is one of those genuinely happy and talented chaps.  That dude is Stefan Trummer.  He and his lovely wife, Victoria, have packed up and moved to D.C. (Virginia, actually – close enough) and are opening their own place.  Congrats to you both!  You’ll truly be missed in the big apple. 

So this party that I attended (with my betrothed), was at the yet-to-open “Apotheke,” Albert Trummer’s (Stefan’s brother) new cocktail lounge in the heart of Chinatown.  The space, which I can currently describe as raw and hip, will open in the coming weeks.  We had a rare glimpse into the place, and the drinks, that are sure to wow New Yorker’s this summer.  And you can be assured you’ll catch me there at some point.  Here are some pics from the party:


The bar at Apotheke.  Look closely, and you can catch a glimpse of Victoria and Stefan behind the stick.

Five summers ago, “Trummer Home” opened in Greenport, (on the north fork of Long Island) and brought us all together for 2 glorious years.  Ahead of it’s time?  No doubt!  Nikki Beach at it’s heart out for those summers.

Victoria, Albert, Me, and Stefan.  One big happy family.  We’ll miss you guys!
