New York is one the world’s top food capitals, with nearly 25 restaurants per 10,000 households at last count according to Eater. But with such an embarrassment of riches the question is, “Where to dine first?”
Might we recommend a culinary tour of epic proportions, starting with dinner at Charlie Palmer at The Knick?
Built in 1906 by John Jacob Astor IV, The Knickerbocker hotel has hosted all sorts of luminaries over the years, including John D. Rockefeller and F. Scott Fitzgerald, and is rumored to be the birthplace of the classic Martini cocktail. Today, after a two-year, $240 million USD renovation, the hotel has been reborn as a modern oasis in the heart of Times Square. In addition to its electrifying rooftop bar, it boasts award-winning American cuisine by chef Charlie Palmer, the mastermind behind 16 eateries across the United States, including the one Michelin-starred, Aureole, located just across the street.
Sip an expertly crafted cocktail at The Knick, rumored to be the birthplace of the classic gin martini.
A Moveable Feast
Over the course of four nights, guests of The Knickerbocker have the opportunity to embark on a comprehensive citywide tour of Charlie Palmer’s award-winning restaurants, including Charlie Palmer Steak, Aureole, Crimson & Rye and, of course, Charlie Palmer at The Knick.
The culinary adventure begins at The Knick for a tasting menu of classic dishes, like fried chicken and roasted Scottish salmon, accompanied by unparalleled Times Square views. The following evening, visit Crimson & Rye, Charlie Palmer’s cocktail lounge housed inside Third Avenue’s iconic Lipstick Building. Claim your seat at the inviting circular bar for an aperitif of East Coast oysters and an impeccably mixed cocktail ahead of the main event.
At your next reservation, savor cuts of meat so tender you can carve them with a butter knife at Charlie Palmer Steak. And perhaps the piece de resistance? An indulgent seven-course surf-and-turf-focused tasting menu at Palmer’s Michelin-starred eatery, Aureole.
