The Enormous Room
A rotating cast of top turntablists spins an ever-changing mix of hip-hop, rare groove, and mellow electronica in this ironically tiny space. The name, of course, is intentionally inaccurate; in fact, once you've found the unmarked entrance and climbed a flight of stairs, you'll arrive in a narrow, brick-walled room. But as the crowd of post-collegiates milling and lazing on low-slung couches knows, the beats here are as huge as the space is small.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
