Winsome would make a great set for a fashion shoot, especially in the daytime, when light streams in and illuminates the blond-wood ceilings and booths, and the long counter that curves around the bar and open kitchen. The hanging plants are draped just so; the wallpaper against the back wall is printed with a scene of fat-bottomed figures picnicking in a lush, green park. Winsome is put together by Marc Rose and Med Abrous, the guys behind the Roosevelt Hotel’s lauded Spare Room cocktail bar. The chef is Jeremy Strubel, and his menu includes such culture-melding, border-crossing dishes as shelling bean and whipped feta spread served with rustic toast and herb pistou; mussels in green curry; and bone marrow street corn. That’s the thing about Winsome: Even if you’d like to resist the hipster fantasy it perpetuates, the food — and the drinks! — are likely to seduce you anyway. —Besha Rodell
