There are plenty of honky-tonks on Broadway, but Layer Cake stands out like a sweet slice of buttermilk pie in a box of beer-battered chicken. There are pink-tufted thrones, golden monkeys hanging from the ceiling lights, and sparkler-topped bottles of booze, so don’t expect anything subtle. The name has nothing to do with dessert, but rather refers to the multiple experiences offered on each floor—lounge-y cocktails on the first, bourbon sriracha-glazed salmon and ribeye dinners on the second, DJ-fueled dance parties on the rooftop, and martinis in the intimate basement speakeasy. It’s a choose-your-own-adventure that offers a nice change from a lot of other Broadway spots.
