Manhattan – Midtown West
158 West 58th St between Sixth and Seventh Aves
Manhattan, NY 10019
This slim, dark lounge dies down on the weekend due to its midtown location (across the street from Alain Ducasse at the Essex House). Midweek, however, it's a great spot for after-work nibbling and sipping fine wines (the all-half-bottle list, with more than 100 globe-trotting selections, is impressive). For what is essentially a below-the-radar hotel bar inside the Park Savoy Hotel, the small plates choices are remarkable. Beef tenderloin with crisp fried onions is simple and succulent; duck skewers with ginger--blueberry sauce are strange but delicious. The very small portions make constructing a meal a considerable challenge. Instead, drop by before dinner for a warm-up, or better yet, close out the night with the special late-night menu (available after 11pm), which includes miniature burgers on brioche and lobster Benedict.
