Manhattan – Midtown East
Renaissance Hotel, 130 E 57th St between Park and Lexington Aves, second floor
Manhattan, NY 10022
This conventional hotel canteen, a dining annex in Frederick Lesort's eurotrashy Opia lounge, churns out competent Parisian standards suitable for weary travelers, plus a few incongruous dishes--from the comfort food canon, decadent mac and cheese; from Japan, sushi. The food, like the white tablecloth setting, is inoffensive but forgettable: rich, chewy hanger steak with rosemary-truffle fries, flakey roasted cod smothered in fennel and black olives. Though jet-lagged tourists may find sustenance at André's, in restaurant-saturated midtown, you can certainly do better.
