Thomas Farley on Jelsimino
Jelsomino, an over-the-top karaoke heaven. Jelsomino is the latest from the Ginza Project, those fabulous Russians who gave Gotham its most glamorous Russian restaurant ever in the form of Mari Vanna. There’s a main stage, where tipsy exhibitionists will perform to an audience indulging in (what else?) champagne, caviar and oysters, a backstage room for those preferring a more predictable musical experience (a DJ will spin), and a VIP room styled as a recording studio, cleverly limiting one’s possibility for embarrassment to one’s inner circle.
