Macao Trading Co.?
Who sent you?
Those Employees Only foxes and artful Chanterelle chefs. Heard this is their joint.
Cocktails — the fruity and lethal Dr. Funk, the seasonal sangarees. And the Portuguese and Chinese-style food — prawns, ribs, fennel and artichoke salad with spiced chick peas.
What’s your trade?
Same as your atmospheric port-side business: fish traps, radios, small ships. My warehouse looks a lot like yours. Piled with stuff from all over.
What’s your real interest?
After dinner, the lounge downstairs. Every “trading company” really fronts a gambling house and bordello, right? Pretty ladies, like the ones in the Chinese ads lining the walls.
Not that I know what you’re talking about, but that’s off-limits for now. Come on in.
Macao Trading Co., 311 Church Street, between Walker and Lispenard Streets (212-431-8750).
