The Co-Owner Of This Chinatown Hot Spot Is Rumored To Be Banksy-Spoofing Street Artist, Hanksy
Go for straightforward Greek fare tonight at Kiki's in Chinatown. The spot is easy to miss—it has no website, and the only sign indicating its presence is in Chinese—but it's this mystery plus the delicious food that ensures its popularity. The space is dark and cozy and fills up quickly—with apps like melitzanosalata (an eggplant dip) served with fresh-from-the-oven pita, and mains like lamb frikasse, it's no wonder why. But, if you don't believe us—take it from the Michelin inspectors who deemed the food "fundamentally right and good".
After dinner, head to neighborhood hotspot Forgtmenot (from the same family that opened Kiki's) for drinks, dancing, and an all around good time. You’ll feel the good vibes from the moment you walk through the door with funky mismatched furniture and multi-color lights strung up throughout the space. Sip on cocktails like the Dirty Pickle Martin and the Dark ‘n Sandy and cheers to each other. Fun fact: co-owner Adam Himebauch is rumored to have a second life as the Banksy-spoofing street artist Hanksy.
