You may remember that four online outlets ran photos and "FIRST LOOKS" at Aspen Social Club yesterday. Men.Style.com recognizes this excess in coverage and has this to add: "Of course, the place seems to deserve the hype." Here's where we feel it's our duty to a) remind everyone that this is, in fact, a giant lounge in Times Square and b), share this report from a tipster who went on night one: "Any restaurant that serves polenta fries in Jenga-like formation is trouble. Add to that an interior that is as nonsensical and baroque as Steve Lewis' psyche and an annex leading to a hotel lobby and that trouble turns catastrophic." [Men's Style; EaterWire]
