Arguably the best part of any ski vacation is “apres-ski,” which basically entails sitting in a warm bar, regaining feeling in your fingers, and having some drinks while laughing about that guy who face-planted while trying to get off the chairlift. Cafe Select is an all-day spot in Soho that feels like a bar at the base of a mountain in the Alps, where you can do all the fun stuff associated with apres-ski, without the bruised tailbones and waterlogged ski socks. The bar area up front works for some wine and European food, like lobster bisque or veal schnitzel, but if you really want to feel like you just stepped off a Swiss mountain in an all-white one-piece ski suit, get a table in the fondue room in the back.
