Situated on a quaint corner, Brasserie Cognac East’s two-story space is as inviting and charming, as it is elegant and sophisticated. Due to the overwhelming popularity of the first Brasserie Cognac located in the Theater District, Restaurateurs Vittorio Assaf and Fabio Granato teamed up to open this Upper Eastside location.
Serving French cuisine with a modern twist, guests can enjoy brunch, lunch, high tea, dinner or a special Cognac pairing.
The main level is divided by a central winding stair case that leads to the upstairs dining room with vibrant purple walls, vintage chandeliers and windows with street views. Neutral gray walls, burgundy banquettes and vintage mirrors create a relaxed, upscale brasserie feel, enhanced by a long brass bar, perfect for sipping wines and aperitifs. Two working fireplaces, one on each level, create a cozy feel. A delightful outdoor café provides fantastic alfresco dining which welcomes the locals, business professionals and families who frequent Brasserie Cognac East.
The San Remo is a luxury, 27-floor, co-operative apartment building in Manhattan located between West 74th Street and West 75th Street, three blocks north of The Dakota. Opened in 1930, the San Remo is described by Glen Justice of the New York Times as "a dazzling two-tower building with captivating views of Central Park." As a housing cooperative, its board has a reputation for "lenient admissions standards" compared to the conservative, old-money boards on the other side of the park.ApartmentsWhen the San Remo was originally designed, it had a wide range of relatively luxurious apartment configurations. The apartments were accessed from opulent twin lobbies which contained terrazzo floors, marble walls and custom light fixtures of bronze and frosted glass. The building has two addresses, 145 and 146 Central Park West, because the building was designed so that each half of the structure is served by separate lobbies, eliminating the need for long hallways across the main floor. There are still some doctor's offices on the first floor, but several of the professional/commercial spaces have recently been sold to tenants who reside in the building for use as office space.BaseThe average apartment contained eight rooms spread over approximately 3000sqft. Ten and eleven foot ceilings were the norm. As originally designed, the lower 14 floors were typically divided into seven apartments – two on each of the side street wings of the building and three laid out along the front of the building facing Central Park West. There are numerous setbacks built into the far ends of each wing of the building, allowing for terraces for several of the units. The original layout of the Park-facing units was unusual; most full-block buildings on the avenue divided the park frontage into four units, not three. This allowed the San Remo's apartments to have very generous frontage along the park in addition to typically spacious interior layouts.

The Leo Castelli Gallery opened in New York at 4 East 77th Street on February 10, 1957. In 1958 the gallery gave Jasper Johns his first exhibition. Within 10 years, the gallery became the international epicenter for Pop, Minimal, and Conceptual Art, showing among others Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Cy Twombly, Frank Stella, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, James Rosenquist, Donald Judd, Dan Flavin, Robert Morris, Bruce Nauman, and Keith Sonnier.
In 1971 the Castelli Gallery opened a second space at 420 West Broadway in SoHo. During this decade, several Conceptual artists joined the gallery, including Joseph Kosuth, Lawrence Weiner and Hanne Darboven. Leo Castelli, the gallery’s founder, had an unparalleled eye for quality, combined with his extraordinary skill for nurturing and promoting new art and artists. These essential qualities secured his position as possibly the most respected and influential advocate for contemporary art of his time.
In 1999 the Leo Castelli Gallery moved the Upper East Side, where it has since been located. For the last ten years, the gallery has been directed by Castelli’s wife, Barbara Bertozzi Castelli. Ms. Bertozzi Castelli is an art historian whose specialization is post-war Japanese avant garde art.
The gallery maintains a commitment to show the best of post-war art, with a focus on the art movements to which it has been home for so many years. The gallery’s program includes exhibitions of new works by historic gallery artists as well as rigorous critical exhibitions that shed new light on understanding of Pop, Minimal and Conceptual Art today.
