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
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
What do you need to pull yourself through a bleak, frigid, snow-soaked winter that seems endless, no matter what a certain genetically clairvoyant Staten Island rodent predicted earlier this week? Comfort food. And to guarantee it at an agreeable price NYC Restaurant Week Winter 2015 rolls into town February 16 through March 6 with 340 participants, more than ever before. Read more
Last summer, Herb n’ Kitchen, the new restaurant at the New York Hilton-Midtown, was briefly the talk of the town, never mind that it hadn’t opened yet. In case you missed the fuss, Hilton announced it was closing its woefully outdated all-purpose restaurant and launching a new “dining concept” in the vast space at the back of the lobby. 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.
