Public kitchen is the best of “New York” food and “World Food” combined, championing all of the cultures that make up the eclectic mix and melting pot that is New York City. Public, the latest for Jean-Georges’ New York-based restaurants, cites a focus on health and wellness at the restaurant at the 150-seat haunt.

There’s also pizza, pastas and pot stickers for carb lovers. Be sure to check out the hotel’s drinking holes pre and post dinner: Diego, The Roof and Lobby Bar for cocktails and a buzzy nightlife scene.

The menu at Nur draws from the rich and flavourful cuisine of the Middle East. It has a modern, bold and playful take on the dishes of the region, including street food elevated to fine dining, classic dishes of the region transformed to a modern palate and some nods to Israeli and Jewish cuisine. The menu is designed for sharing and provides guests with the opportunity to travel the culinary world of the Middle East through their taste buds. The palestinian tartare, turkish delight on the Hudson and octopus in particular are delightful.Meir Adoni serves the same style of modern Middle Eastern food he built his reputation on, without making any accommodations to New York. Take the brain fricassée: A spin on the Tunisian fricassée sandwich, Adoni subs out the traditional fried bread for a butter croissant, and the usual tuna for veal brain.
