A new restaurant called "The Collective" is opening up next week in Manhattan's Meatpacking district, a neighborhood that already has its fair share of eccentric mega-projects. The thing that sets apart this new spot from its chic, sleek neighbors, is it's "recycled" aesthetic. That's right, the space contains pill bottle chandeliers, scrabble board tables, styrofoam light fixtures, and many other design details created out of repurposed materials. As for the menu—surprise!—it's also eclectic. The concept seems to be based around incorporating all of New York's neighborhood staples into one menu—there's Hong Kong Ribs from Chinatown, Chicken & Apple Sausage from Yorkville, Seared Diver Scallops with Peas n Pearls from South Street Seaport, etc.
All the recipes, tips, and tricks to make this season merry and bright
