How do you know you’re really in the thick of Fall?
A November election, the end of daylight saving time (fall back!) and the arrival of a new Michelin Guide to New York City restaurants are excellent bellwethers.
Michelin’s red-coated 2019 edition landed yesterday, Election Day 2018. We eagerly scoured it online to see how the city’s hotel restaurants fared. With three categories of stars encompassing 76 restaurants, six were at hotels. That’s nice, but hardly news.
In 2010, the first year Overnight New York started keeping score, seven hotel restaurants made the cut, including tony, now shuttered establishments like Adour Alain Ducasse at the St. Regis, Gordon Ramsay at The London and L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon at the Four Seasons. But only five collected a Michelin star (or two, or three) in 2015. Read more
Bastille Day is right around the corner (Saturday, July 14 to be precise). And France is in the World Cup finals on Sunday. Do you need any more reasons to dig into French Restaurant Week 2018 in New York?
This year 22 restaurants around town encourage you to Eat Drink and Be French with three-course lunches for $25, three-course dinners for $38 or a special multi-course $178.89 prix fixe feast for two through July 15. Two are at hotels. Bon appétit. Read more
As NYC Winter Restaurant Week 2018 roars into town for a three week stint from January 22 to February 9, this seems a good time to pause and take a look at its history.
Dozens of cities, large and small, offer promotional prix-fixe meals once or twice a year, but until 1992 that wasn’t the case. Read more
Oscar Sunday unfurls this weekend. If you like being surrounded by a crowd when you see if Leonardo breaks his streak or what Cate, Rooney and Jen Law (or their stylists) like for the Red Carpet this time around, these two New York City hotels stand at the ready with big screens and big plans.

If it’s October, it’s red book time — the month when Michelin and Zagat release their annual hit list for New York’s best restaurants. The internet all but explodes with restaurant reviews, but Michelin and Zagat stand at the top of their game in their respective categories — unbiased professional reviews conducted anonymously and super-crowdsourced reviews.

What does summer taste like?
Ice cream is my favorite two word answer, especially when it’s in a cone. It seems Michael Mignano, Executive Pastry Chef at The Pierre New York, agrees.
In the spirit of long days, soaring temperatures and lazy afternoons (or memories of them), he’s concocted the summer’s cleverest pop-up dessert: four miniature hand-crafted cones filled with ice cream made from sun-season fruits — white peach raspberry, Alphonse mango, white chocolate strawberry, wild blueberry verbena.

If it’s late July it must be NYC Summer Restaurant Week — the lip-smacking week in name only that stretches just short of a month and serves up three-course prix-fixe deals designed to stave off summer doldrums (and keep restaurants humming during the slow season).
This summer’s magic numbers are $25 (lunch) and $38 (dinner). More than 360 restaurants are on board including 43 at hotels, a record by our reckoning. Read more
Overnight New York is the independent guide to New York City hotels with honest, unbiased reporting and no ties to the hotels we write about. We visit each hotel anonymously and always pay when we eat and stay. Think of Overnight New York as a best friend who susses out where you want to spend the night — and where you don’t — and tells you what’s new, what’s trending and where to meet for drinks after work, indulge in a romantic dinner or put up the in-laws.
