Inside Abe & Arthur's and Simyone

Feast your eyes on the renderings for Eugene Remm and Mark Birnbaum's latest project, Abe and Arthur's and Simyone, that is poised to make a big splash opening during Fashion Week. Abe and Arthur's, lovingly named after the owners' grandfathers, will feature Franklin Becker's cuisine, including a sure to be delicious (and expensive) burger with Pat LaFrieda meat. The over/under for the burger's price is set at $20, and for what it's worth, we are taking the over. The downstairs will be the Simyone lounge (seen above), whose door will be tightly guarded by doorman extraordinare Aalex Juian. Just make sure you know his standards before trying to get inside. Like our LB described a few days ago, both the restaurant and nightclub are filled with light woods and stainless steel finishes, and just look at those darling bottle service tables and banquettes. Just perfect for storing bottles and mixers. Who is excited? We are excited!

All the renderings you could ever want, after the jump!

Abe and Arthur's

Abe and Arthur's soaring dining room. Check out that light wood!

More from the dining room. We wonder which of these tables will be reserved for Arthur Kade?

Just imagine how many couples will find true love on this dance floor!

September 4, 2009 at 10:52AM | Unregistered Commenterregular

these are just renderings..

doubt it will look like that.

September 4, 2009 at 11:03AM | Unregistered Commenterhater

gotta say
i was on the fence when i heard about this but this place looks sick..... def not the lotus i used to get dirty in years ago....
if they can get the food right its going to be a hit. they wont have a problem filling it....

September 4, 2009 at 11:48AM | Unregistered Commenterhmmm

The place looks better than that. The boys have put an incredible amount of work into this place and the proof is in the pudding as they say. It will be a great success

What do you get when you combine Tenjune + Chanedlier Room in Jersey City = Abe & Arthurs, Long Island + Hoboken all in one room, I am looking forward to spikey hair, fake tanner, and a lot of promoters!

September 4, 2009 at 12:30PM | Unregistered CommenterLOL

this will be promoter central for sure!!!

September 4, 2009 at 12:31PM | Unregistered Commenteri know cuz I f*** promoters

they're going to make a fucking fortune regardless of the crowd. they'll be laughing all the way to the bank.

September 4, 2009 at 01:01PM | Unregistered Commentercash money

Nah, I think it'll be legit for the normal 6-12 month time frame. Then the promoters will circle in.. Jsut like every other place.. They have a good team in place. The only reason people hate is because TJ has had a long run already. So It gets tired jsut like your hating.

September 4, 2009 at 01:36PM | Unregistered CommenterNah

Now I know this is just renderings, and nothing ever looks like renderings...but...from the pictures, anyone else think it kinda looks like....Guesthouse??

September 4, 2009 at 04:39PM | Unregistered CommenterNYCOracle

your in love with Arthur Kade. Admit it already. the two of you will find true love on the dance floor!

September 4, 2009 at 05:00PM | Unregistered Commentersixflags

extraordinare Aalex Juian ??????????

Yeah thats right - are you serious ?

September 4, 2009 at 08:47PM | Unregistered Commenterjust saying

Given that tenjune was never "the" place (the promoters did bring in a lot of models, but they needed the promoters for that), does it make sense to have Aalex do the door ? Or are they going for MPD business as usual? Gelled hair and bankers probably buy more bottles than fashionistas do , so I can't fault them as a business strategy. Just curious what they're trying to do here, hype aside.

September 5, 2009 at 03:22PM | Unregistered Commenterteabiscuit

If it looks that good in the daytime, imagine what it will be like at night. Can't wait.

September 5, 2009 at 09:57PM | Unregistered Commenternightmaven

just another shite project from a shite bunch of wankers... names are horrible. and if you're going to name it abe and arthur, you can't wank it up with "american brasserie fare" and some fancy pants burger abe and arthur wouldn't shite on...howsabout some barney greengrass style tripple-deckers son? while wes at it, delicatessen is a complete failure and their liver tastes like choda.

September 7, 2009 at 11:32AM | Unregistered Commentershiteprojectfromashitebunchofwankers

To make an assumption off a rendering is... insane- wait till they start cutting corners as they will do- and the toilets have no tops- or seats-
and I can't wait to have that $20 burger(Pat LaFrieda- who is now known for quality as much as a good price- this is NOT kobe here folks) to mix in with the subtle aroma of wafting smoke from the staff,and crowd.
If they did not have a great rent due to dumb luck- 1year tops-
So, I give it 3 if they don't have to become "duke's" way before it folds.

September 7, 2009 at 03:36PM | Unregistered CommenterDoesnotaddup?

Pat LaFrieda- NOT known for quality- NOT. his grandfather started the biz- so when your the only kid in town and you undercut everyone else- No brainer....

September 7, 2009 at 03:38PM | Unregistered CommenterDoesnotaddup?

hey dipshit - they named the place after their grandfathers, so show a little respect here, faggot.

and no i don't work for EMM Group, you non family having, stupid fuck. learn how to spell also, wanker....

September 8, 2009 at 03:53PM | Unregistered Commentertrollai_llama

hey beeninthegamesukingcockalongtime

Hitler had a grandfather also- Putz...
The place will try and turn into a club 6 months out- just wait.....
The food cost will be insane- and no money in food- just ego.

September 8, 2009 at 05:54PM | Unregistered CommenterDoesnotaddup?

I think it's funny how EVERYTHING is hated on on this site...hipsters, bottle-buyers, Japs, Long-Island people, jersey people, Malaysians, finance guys, promoters, Noah + Jason, Satsky, The Tenjune people, Greenhouse, The Beatrice people for selling out, the 1Oak guys, Amy Sacco, Guest of A Guest, and everyone who writes/reads/comments on this site. If you take away all the people above there is literally NOTHING left of nightlife in NYC (other than my beloved gay scene).

Is there anything that DOESN'T suck about straight NYC nightlife/????

September 8, 2009 at 08:30PM | Unregistered Commentergayisthenewstraight

@doesnotaddup - i wasn't speaking to you. when you're somewhat close to being up on my level, then you can consider addressing me.

September 9, 2009 at 01:14AM | Unregistered Commenterbeen in the game for long time

comment above..... VERY WELL SAID.

this site is for haters to hate anonymously....DBTH mite as well stand for DOWN BY THE HATER

with that said, i will be at both Abe & Arthurs and Simyone Lounge for their soft opening this friday! hate all you want, but my celeb status is gettin me into an event that 95% of this sites readers/commenters wont have access to!

and you all know emm group's events are filled with people in "the biz" and bottles will be poppin bigger than kate style has ever been before

kade in. kade out!

September 9, 2009 at 01:19AM | Unregistered Commenterkade in

umm beeninthegameforalongtime.
Throw down your resume punk.... Don't speak with your ass cuz your mouth has to back it up.

September 9, 2009 at 02:29PM | Unregistered CommenterDoesnotaddup?

Uhhhhh Doesnotaddup, don't bite off more than you can chew. I've been doing this for way longer than you. Nobody spoke to you in my post, but you're speaking directly to me for I don't know whatever reason. I make way more money for my venues than those dipshit $500 a night table hosts that get paid to bring out 20 wannabe models (and "wankers" like yourself) that sit around and drink free booze, which, I wouldn't be surprised if you were one of.

September 9, 2009 at 04:11PM | Unregistered Commenterbeen in the game for long time

Please Been.... Do tell how long you have been in the game-
Are you an Owner? Promoter? Both?
You are being called to task- speak or sit......

September 9, 2009 at 05:01PM | Unregistered CommenterDoesnotaddup?

dude who the hell are YOU that i have to prove myself to? you crack me up guy. you're obviously very insecure that you need to ask me who i am. i don't give a FUCK about who you are. LMFAO.

Scott, please close this thread so we don't have to hear back from this douchebag anymore.

September 9, 2009 at 06:48PM | Unregistered Commenterbeen in the game for long time

I made a comment about abe & aurthur's- you went off on your tangent.
