Really, the name says it all about this Palace Hotel stunner geared to the splurging foodie with its sensational prix fixe–only New American cuisine and fantasy wine list, not to mention the exquisite mansion setting and service fit for a king and queen; no surprise, the prices are equally fantastic, but one way or another it’s sure to put a shine on your day.
Eleven Madison Park
Top of the line all the way, this New French experience on Madison Square Park is exquisite from beginning to end, matching chef Daniel Humm’s exhilarating tasting menu–only cuisine with world-class service (even the busboys have Cornell degrees) in a majestic art deco space; surveyors split on the cryptic new sudoku-card menu format (an engaging adventure vs. precious), and, of course, tabs are in the stratosphere.
Million-dollar views of Lower Manhattan, lovingly prepared New American food, first-class service and fragrant flowers are the draws at Buzzy O’Keeffe’s enchanting Dumbo water’s edge standby; even though the $100 prix fixe–only dinner may be a splurge, most feel it’s a fair price in exchange for experiencing the essence of romance or a perfect private party.
A timeless classic, this stunning Midtown modernist landmark designed by Philip Johnson and stewarded by Alex von Bidder and Julian Niccolini continues to shine with top-level New American food delivered by super-pro servers; whether dining in the buzzing Grill Room with its quintessential NY power scene or in the elegant, more ladylike Pool Room, you’re splurging on perfection – likewise they have fine party spaces.
With stunning views of Central Park and the UWS cityscape, fantabulous Asian–New American fusion fare and near-flawless service, this jewel box in the Mandarin Oriental (once again voted No. 1 for Decor) is stratospheric all around; it’s like eating on a cloud – and though expensive prix fixe–only dinner tabs rain on some parades, the $34 lunch is a deal.
