"It's like, What Recession?"

2009_03_merkatoparty.jpgThe Times catches wind of the raucous Saturday brunches at nightclub/restaurant/anomaly Merkato 55 and its cohort Bagatelle. This excerpt pretty much sums it up: "'It’s like, "What recession?"' said Ms. Brodish, who lives in TriBeCa and was dressed this afternoon in a glittery top paired with skinny black pants...In her opinion, the Saturday afternoon dance party was just another facet of the dynamic city. 'There’s SoHo...There’s the Empire State Building. There’s Merkato 55'" [NYT]
