The restaurant takes its inspiration from old-time New York, while the decor utilizes elements from classic city supper clubs (which is a total trend these days) the name is taken from the gangs of NY era. As far as the menu, the focus on classic American fare is about as contemporary as anything you'd find in other sceney joints. Expect cocktail friendly chow like crispy deviled eggs, blue-crab stuffed artichokes and a "5 points burger" to keep the carnivores happy.
Of course, something from Kane wouldn't be complete without something to lure in the high rollers, and here it's a VIP area where you can request your own bartender. That room is decked out with vintage black-and-white photos and a zebra print rug. Look for the opening this week and take a look at another picture below (243 West 14th St.).
