Chef Geoffrey Zakarian brings his vision of a contemporary New York grand cafe to life with the debut of The National. Housed in the same historic building as The Benjamin Hotel, the restaurant is modeled after traditional European cafes but tailored to Midtown Manhattan. The National emphasizes modern bistro cuisine, stylish comfort and great service in a timelessly chic atmosphere.
