Top Ten New York Hotel Restaurants

Hotel restaurants are giving conventional restaurants a run for their money, constantly raising the bar in terms of standards and cuisine. Haute Living takes a look at ten of New York’s best hotel restaurants.

10 – The Trilby: The newest offering at the Cooper Square Hotel, the Trilby has a menu that includes a charred octopus appetizer, a seasonal tomato salad and carrot cake. The Tribly is especially noteworthy, however, because of it’s outdoor seating area in a tranquil area that is hard to find in a bustling city like New York. 25 Cooper Square, 212-475-3400

9 – Tenpenny: Located at the Gotham Hotel on East 46th Street, Tenpenny has an innovative and tasty menu with professional and friendly service. Chef Christopher Cipollone’s new American menu features dishes like porchetta ravioli with a poached egg and a homey pork rack with savory apply pie. Tenpenny also offers a ten-course tasting menu. 16 East 46th Street, 212-490-8300

8 – Asiate: Located on the 35th floor of the luxurious Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Asiate is known for it’s spectacular views overlooking Central Park and it’s Asian-accented menu. Dishes include “Buckwheat & Eggs” paired with soba noodles with Osetra caviar and wasabi cream or butter-poached lobster with white polenta and kaffir emulsion. The restaurant also features 1,300 bottles of wine and there is an affordable prix-fixe lunch. 80 Columbus Circle, 212-805 8800

7 – The Burger Joint: Not your typical “fancy” hotel restaurant, The Burger Joint is tucked behind the reception desk in the lobby of the Parker Meridien Hotel and has a limited, but well worth it, menu. Burgers, cheeseburgers, shakes and brownies are on The Burger Joint’s menu and you can order your burger with the works (lettuce, onion, tomato, ketchup, mustard, pickles) and add a pitcher of beer to go with it. 119 West 56th Street, 212-708-7414

6 – Adour: Located in the lavish St. Regis Hotel, Alain Ducasse’s Adour is the perfect hotel restaurant for dining. Entrees here cost around $45 and the entire menu is elegant and modern French fare like foie gras with heart of palm and pasta. Desserts are excellent and the restaurant has an extensive wine list to top it off. 2 East 55th Street, 212-710-2277

5 – The Breslin: Located in the always bustling Ace Hotel, the Breslin features divine meaty lamburgers, a delicious Caesar salad topped with anchovy goodness and even breakfast fare such as curried lentils with poached eggs. 16 West 29th Street, 212-679-1939

4 – Locanda Verde: While Andrew Carmellini is most infamously known for The Dutch, his Italianish Locanda Verge located at the Greenwich Hotel is a must-see too. The menu consists of dishes like creamy whipped ricotta and steak tartare flecked with hazelnuts and truffles. For dessert, try the pudding-like budinos from pastry chef Karen DeMasco. 377 Greenwich Street, 212-925-3797

3 – Ai Fiori: From Michael White, Ai Fiori is an elegant Franco-Italian restaurant located in the Setai Hotel. The restaurant features an $84 four-course dinner which allows you to pick from any four dishes from the full menu of apps, pastas, entrees and desserts. Butter-poached oysters with caviar are a popular choice in addition to the trofie nero, which tosses jet-black squid ink pasta with a light seafood ragout dotted with baby scallops. Ai Fiori has a subdued atmosphere providing a refreshing and calm ambience. 400 5th Avenue, 212-613-8660

2 – L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon: Built in an I.M. Pei-designed space at the Four Seasons Hotel, this high-end restaurant proves price and quality can go hand in hand. The restaurant features sky-high ceilings, cushy banquettes and blond and red-and-black-lacquered wood details. There is also a 20-seat bar overlooking the kitchen that cooks up fantastic Asian-accented French cuisine, such as pan-seared sea bass complemented with lemongrass foam or langoustine Carpaccio with fresh wasabi and caviar. 57 East 57th Street, 212-829-3844

1 – Jean Georges/Nougatine: Located in the Trump International Hotel just off Central Park, the dining room here is calm yet filled with culinary energy that is hard to miss. Service is great and the menu is affordable with the prix-fixe lunch known for being one of the best in town. 1 Central Park West, 212-299-3900
