As much of a draw for the scene as for the food, Double Crown is a restaurant homage to the British Empire in Asia and a sprawling follow-up to Public and Monday Room in Nolita. Chef Brad Farmerie draws culinary inspiration from both Mother Britain and her former East Asian colonies, offering up elegant riffs on bangers and mash (featuring boar sausage and beet relish) and a classic Wellington (stuffed with elk instead of the usual tenderloin). The Raj gets a nod in a spicy side of garam masala potatoes. There are Singaporean laksas and Hong Kong–style steamed buns with duck. The eclectic cuisine reflects the decor, which features a vibrant hodgepodge of far-flung knickknacks (Fu dogs, soapstone lanterns from India) courtesy of restaurant designers du jour AvroKo, who also co-own the joint. The party in the annex bar—a cozy shoebox dubbed Madam Geneva, where hip young things huddle around shareable nibbles and potent old-school libations (Pimm's Cups, Singapore Slings)—often spills into the main dining room. On weekends, hungover brunches segue into afternoon parties with boozy high teas, complete with crusts-off sandwiches, clotted cream scones, and gin-spiked Earl Grey.—Jay Cheshes

Open Mondays through Thursdays 6 to 11 pm, Fridays 6 pm to 12 am, Saturdays 11 am to 12 am, and Sundays 11 am to 11 pm.
