We watch as co-owners Michael Chernow and Daniel Holzman sing ultimate praise for this piece of plastic, while shots of the interior are displayed across the screen.

West Village – 64 Greenwich
Williamsburg – 170 Bedford
Chelsea – 200 Ninth Avenue, coming soon.
Upper East Side – 1462 Second Avenue, expected winter 2013.
