Simon Doonan, Barneys Creative Director at Genes at Co-Op
This past weekend, I was at Barneys getting some alterations done. Having skipped breakfast (I know, I know) and lunch and faced with an hour drive home, I was S.T.A.R.V.I.N.G! I was just about to head to Fred’s, the renown in-house restaurant, when I saw a notice that Genes at Co-Op had just opened. Curious, I headed to the 8th floor, where I found this intimate, techie eatery.
Instead of a place mat, each space has a touch screen, much like an oversized Ipad. You can see the menu, ask for a server, request your check, read an online article or shop, all while you have a bite to eat. My asian chicken salad and Harney’s special blend iced tea were delicious and just the sustenance I needed to make it home.
So, for anyone who will be visiting or shopping in the city over the holidays, consider popping in to enjoy this little tech cafe oasis. They serve breakfast, lunch and afternoon snacks!
Bon appetit and happy holiday shopping!
