FLATIRON DISTRICT. For all intents and purposes, this Flatiron spot is far too sexy to be thrown into the sports bar mix. This looks like a place where people with expensive taste in clothes and cognac (Read: A-listers) gather and indulge. Not surprisingly, 40/40 attracts plenty of big names after all, Jay-Z is a co-owner with its sophisticated environs. But make no mistake: Thanks to 15 LCD and 8 plasma-screen TVs, it’s also one of the best places in town to catch the game. NB The place’s name pays homage to baseball’s Jose Canseco, Alex Rodriguez, Alfonso Soriano and Barry Bonds (the only Big Leaguers to tally 40 home runs and 40 stolen bases in one season).
