The modern Asian cuisine at Hortus NYC reflects global influences. Starter selections include calamari tempura with spicy mayo, mussels in bone marrow broth and pasta with bok choy and garlic oil. Or try appealing raw bar choices (like scallop ceviche, king crab), high-quality charcuterie and European cheese. Entrées, such as the rib eye with wild mushrooms, are for sharing. On the ground floor, there’s an open kitchen and chef’s table; upstairs you’ll find a lounge, a garden-themed outdoor patio and a stylish dining room. Japanese craft beers, fine wines and soju-based cocktails dominate the astute drinks list.
