12 Things to Do in New York This November

Autumn air may be nipping at our noses, but there’s no cooling down Long Island’s red-hot dining, arts and style scenes. Dress to the nines, take in a theatrical matinée, check out what’s new and have the best week!

Monday
In Huntington, take in the Heckscher Museum of Art’s 53-piece Biennial exhibit. The artists selected are transporting viewers to unique visions of Long Island. Stay on the North Shore for dinner at Barto in Roslyn. Rumor is their Moroccan braised chicken is the real deal.

Tuesday
Visit Brooklyn Brewery to discover the perfect beer to complement any Thanksgiving. Our expert’s picks are designed to carry the day through its distinct stages. While in the neighborhood, make a pit stop at Maison Premiere to imbibe in an absinthe-based cocktail. You will not lose your mind.

Wednesday
Jump right through hump day with a quintessential New York City experience. Catch a matinée on the Great White Way. Take in dinner at chef Enrique Olvera’s Cosme, widely considered one of the best restaurants in the world. It’s where Obama eats!

Thursday
Attend the LI Music Hall of Fame’s 2016 induction ceremony to see local legends like Steven Van Zandt and Steve Vai be honored. To dress like rock royalty, make sure to come adorned with something brilliant from London Jewelers.

Friday
The weekend has arrived, it’s time to treat yourself! Partake in the extensive offerings during the “eating season” with our issue’s Islandwide Dining Guide. More of a wine drinker? Head to McCall Wines in Cutchogue to sip their 2013 Hillside pinot noir, aged 16 months in French oak.

Saturday
The North Fork may be wine country, but it’s also home to a rich culinary scene. The Food That Feeds Us begins with farm stands in Cutchogue and Southold. But the odyssey continues with stops for hard cider in Aquebogue and locally-grained bread baked in Huntington. Discover many artisans along the way.

Sunday
Wake up early for a good cause and participate in CancerCare’s 14th Annual Lung Cancer Walk for Hope in Woodbury. Cool the walker’s burn by curling up with Sweetbitter. Stephanie Danler’s new novel offers a delicious glimpse behind the curtain of NYC’s most fashionable restaurant scene.
