Millesime (92 Madison Avenue at 29th Street in the Carlton hotel) has just launched a new weekly music series in the salon, as well as a line of Fall signature cocktails. Live performances will happen Wednesday through Sunday and feature an eclectic mix of musicians and singers including world-renowned pianists,  envelope-pushing singing acts and some of the city’s best DJs. Millesime also tells us that the following people have hung out there: Gerard Butler, Barbra Steisand, Jon Hamm, Susan Surandon, Russel Crowe, Ed Norton, Courtney Love, Kanye West, Jay Z, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Adrian Brody.

We hit the opening party last night and got to hear some great music by fusion act Charlotte Balibar AKA DJ Super Jaimie with her band Lost Tempo in Paris. Here is the current music schedule:

  • Wednesdays: Female djs including Carol C, Abeille Gelinas, Sky Nellor, ChloeVan Paris (6-10pm)
  • Thurdsdays: Charlotte Balibar with live musicians (8pm-midnight)
  • Fridays: Legendary Damon with live musicians and DJs (9pm-2am)
  • Saturdays: Pianist Michael Garin (8pm-midnight)
  • Sundays: Burlesque Jazz Brunch – various jazz musicians, and a DJ with dancers.

We also sampled some of the menu (Oyster soup was amazing) and the new signature Fall drinks (loved the warm Honey Bear cocktail- perfect for colder weather). Here is the new Fall specialty cocktail list (with recipes!)

The Millesime kitchen is headed by Chef Laurent Manrique, the former executive chef at San Francisco’s Aqua restaurant (even receiving 2 Michelin stars in 2006-2008).
