AMBIANCE
When NYC’s landmark hotel The Knickerbocker reopened in Times Square, it also opened a brand new restaurant, Charlie Palmer at The Knick. Overlooking Broadway on 42nd Street, the restaurant, adorned in glass and marble, flaunts an air of classic luxury in an exclusive venue.

DYNAMITE DISHES
Chef Palmer, renowned for Aureole and Upper Story—among other restaurants—cooks up American cuisine with a flavor spin on each dish. The braised short rib with butter potatoes and baby vegetables and Scottish salmon, served on forbidden rice, foie and carrot reduction are must-try dishes.

SWEET TOOTH
The citrus poached pear with honey cremeaux, a brown butter biscuit, and pear-lemon sorbet is a zesty sweet fix.

TOP TIPPLE
Inspired by the hotel’s style curator Ted Gibson, Gibson Girl—Belvedere, Crème de Cassis, lychee, and lemon juice—and Gibson Guy—Hudson Maple Cask Whiskey, jalapeno, lemon, and Angostura + Peychaud’s bitters—are a classy cocktail couple.


JAMS
1414 6TH AVENUE, NEW YORK (212) 703-2007

Jams

AMBIANCE
Jonathan Waxman’s original 1980s-era restaurant has been reborn in 1 Hotel Central Park. Whereas the old Jams was furnished for an ‘80s generation, the new space is designed in a Rustic Contemporary style. With an interior made of reclaimed wood and dining chairs lined in sustainable linen fabric, the restaurant is surrounded by two-story windows that are blanketed in ivy.

DYNAMITE DISHES
Known for sprouting California cuisine in NYC, Jams upholds its original concept of all-natural, locally-sourced fare, serving classic throwbacks with a twist. There’s Waxman’s roast chicken glazed in tarragon butter; braised duck legs with root vegetables and pumpkin seed gremolata; and Jams Pancakes featuring Jams Pancakes with smoked salmon, corn sauce, crème fraiche, and caviar atop roasted red pepper pancakes.

SWEET TOOTH
The Meyer lemon almond tart is the pastry chef’s signature dessert.

TOP TIPPLE
Gin connoisseurs, sip on Jams’ take on a French 75, mixed with Boodle’s Gin, lemon, and cava.


CHEVALIER
28 W. 53RD STREET, NEW YORK (212) 790-8869

Chevalier

AMBIANCE
The classic Parisian brasserie meets NYC luxury at the Baccarat Hotel’s Chevalier. The restaurant exudes sophisticated French dining in a contemporary space with an enchanting main dining room lined with plush banquettes against lavish walls, and the 14-seat chef’s table La Cour.

DYNAMITE DISHES
Chef Shea Gallante, who earned a Michelin star at Cru, helms the kitchen with modern French cuisine that reflects the hotel’s artistry. Fanciful dishes include diver scallops, with braised baby beets, caraway, and horseradish soubise; and roasted duck breast, with acacia honey glaze, turnips, and caramelized Medjool date puree.

SWEET TOOTH
A Sticky Toffee Pudding, with mandarin orange with banana ice cream, is worth sticky fingers.

TOP TIPPLE
The bar’s signature cocktail—Harmonie, with Bulleit Bourbon, Castarède Réserve De La Famille Nv, Dolin Dry Vermouth, Massenez Creme De Mure, ginger syrup, and lemon juice— is as jazzy as the ritzy décor.


SESSANTA
60 THOMPSON STREET, NEW YORK (212) 219-8119

Inside SIXTY SoHo, Sessanta is inspired by post-war Heyday of Italian culture and coastal Italian cuisine. Diners are transported to what feels like a cozy, Italian home with a touch of glamour in mid-century Italy.

DYNAMITE DISHES
Chef Jordan Frosolone—former culinary director at Momofuku—accentuates the flavors of Sicily with coastal cuisine. One of the most notable dishes here is the octopus, braised to a perfect crisp, seasoned with turmeric, and served with faro and apricots; along with the fritto misto and grilled orata with fennel, coriander, grilled lemon, and salsa verde.

For a light and creamy Italian dessert, try the bocconcini con manna—puff shells filled with crema alla manna, hazelnut, and chocolate.
