It looks like Butter and the other Monday night parties have some competition. New restaurant and lounge La Zarza at 166 First Avenue has stepped into the ring.
Last night was the first night of the new monday night party... The place was packed with promoters ( some from Tenjune, mansion, etc), modelly girls, even DJ David Morales was there. The spot is beautiful with dark wood, low lights, and surprisingly good house/techno music.
The downstairs lounge, which opens after dinner, has only 6 large booth like tables so it will be sure to be exclusive. It reminded me of what a cellar basement at ciprianis downtown would look like. I really liked the party and will certainly be heading back (and yay for East Village finally getting some good spots).
