The First American Retrospective on Italian Futurism is at the Guggenheim

Guggenheim Italian Futurism

New York City's Guggenheim Museum has raised the curtain on the future—and it's very big and very particular. Italian Futurism, 1909–1944: Reconstructing the Universe, organized by curator Vivien Greene, brings together more than 360 works of art, including documents and a wide range of objects, from around the world to reveal a largely unknown but dynamic and ambitious aesthetic movement of the first half of the 20th century.

Chef's Tour: The Ardeche, France

Chef's Tour

It’s not every day that one of France’s most respected chefs—we’re talking the three-Michelin-star, Bocuse d’ Or-winning ilk—would travel to Manhattan and cook for an entire weekend. In fact, it’s been more than 20 years since Régis Marcon of Hôtel et Restaurant Régis et Jacques Marcon has cooked in New York City.

Marcon brought his talented sons Jacques and Paul with him last weekend, teaming up with longtime friend Daniel Boulud to create a series of exquisite meals out of Boulud’s equally Michelin-star-studded Restaurant Daniel. After dropping by the kitchen to chat with Chef Marcon during the city’s annual Citymeals-on-Wheels benefit (Boulud is co-president this year—check out his awesome new Chefs Deliver initiative), I’m dying to dine at his restaurant in France’s south-central Ardèche region. Read on, and then fight me for the last available aisle seat to France tomorrow.

A Bollywood Spectacular Comes to New Jersey

As the synchronized jingle of a dozen anklets claimed center stage at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center last Saturday, I watched with giddy anticipation. There was something exhilarating about listening to the Bollywood tunes of my childhood—songs that often served as the overplayed soundtracks to family roadtrips and dinner parties—captivate an audience of nearly 2,300.

I was here to witness “Mystic India: The World Tour,” a series of high-octane dance performances that combined regional folk dancing, exuberant tributes to Hindu gods and lively renditions of Bollywood classics.
