WHAT: A 24-hour bistro bar at the Midtown Hyatt
WHERE: 48th St. and Lexington Avenue, New York
DESIGNER: Siobhan Barry, partner and lead designer at iCrave
ELEMENTS: Brass, brass, and more brass “It has a presence,” designer Siobhan Barry says of Lexington Brass. Bentwood chairs and iron-footed tables placed in the bistro’s floor-to-ceiling glass façade lets diners look out onto 48th and Lex and entice busy passersby to take a moment and enjoy themselves. “It makes you want to grab a perch and belong there,” Barry says.
