This newly renovated spot, located in the lounge/library of the high end restaurant in the hotel, has given its guests a new type of dining in addition to their five-star regular style. Opening at 4 p.m., get ready to order some small plates and hand-crafted cocktails from a much more casual menu and atmosphere. So far, we love the mouth-watering small plates such as the Rosemary Roasted Ruby Beet Tartare and the Petit Lobster Pot Pie. And that is just to start.

Don’t worry, the acclaimed Atlas, now featuring two unique environments,  will continue to provide a fine dining experience in the dining room in addition to the new menu at the Tavern Atlas. Basically the best of all worlds.
