Bjork


New York City

You never know what you’re going to get from Björk. And that’s the magic. The “swan dress” wearing superstar’s adventurous electronic music (or is it alternative, classical, trip-hop?) has wowed global audiences for more than 20 years—and we can’t forget that she’s also a talented actress, producer and multi-instrumentalist. The Museum of Modern Art has drawn from the Icelandic wonder’s numerous eclectic projects—dating to her days fronting the Sugarcubes, when we first heard the voice that can go from guttural to gleeful in an eyeblink—to  present a biographical and fictitious narrative installation told through visuals, sound, film, performances, objects and costumes. Co-written by Björk and acclaimed Icelandic writer Sjón, the exhibition caps off with an immersive film and music experience conceived with director Andrew Thomas Huang and 3-D design leader Autodesk. Begins March 8. moma.org

Washington, D.C.

Take Peruvian cuisine and spice it up with Japanese and Chinese influences and you get China Chilcano, renowned chef José Andrés’ latest (and perhaps most stunning) small plates restaurant in Penn Quarter, where tatami tables and Nazca Lines adorn the interior. The flavor combinations are no joke, featuring dim sum side-by-side with ceviche and ají de gallina, a chicken stew with fresh cheese and pecans. One must-try dish: the aeropuerto, a gigantic heap of fried rice, crispy egg noodles, soy sprouts and close to 20 seasonal vegetables. Be sure to order the suspiro limeña, that’s Peru’s signature condensed milk custard, for dessert. chinachilcano.com




Philadelphia

If you follow Ravens kicker (and former STYLE cover model) Justin Tucker on Instagram, you know he has an affinity for dressing fancy when he’s not on the field. Many of his snazzy suits (his slate blue windowpane comes to mind) hail from the international, high-end custom menswear brand Indochino. The Vancouver-based company’s newest showroom, which recently opened shop in the Center City shopping district, is only its third in the U.S.—evolving from popular Traveling Taylor pop-up events around the country. Appointments suggested. Gentlemen, we suggest a road trip, a cheesesteak (Pat’s with whiz; take no exceptions) and a stop by the Philadelphia Museum of Art for the exceptional new “200 Years of African American Art” exhibit, through April 5. indochino.com
