It’s finally the Ad Show 2019 in New York—the perfect time to get out and explore the city’s luxury restaurants. With options as diverse as a vibrant modern Indian restaurant, an alfresco cocktail and raw bar, and an Italian hot spot with a modern design and a hip-hop soundtrack, there’s isn’t one unifying trend, but rather lots of fantastic choices for every mood and palate.
A forerunner in the under-construction development at Hudson Yards, this luxury restaurant inside a former recording studio exudes over-the-top glam.
San Francisco–based design guru Ken Fulk brought his signature decadence to the space with a beautiful interior design, which is awash in marble, brass, and leather with paintings by Mickalene Thomas and a vibrant mural by Chris Lux inspired by Marvin Gaye’s I Want You album cover in the upstairs bar. Delicious Hospitality tapped Chef Ryan Hardy for the Italian-inspired menu, Jeff Bell of famed speakeasy PDT for the cocktails, and Arvid Rosengren (named Best Sommelier in the World) for the wine list.

Also designed by Roman and Williams, the luxury restaurant inside the hip new Freehand Hotel is one of the city’s buzziest new places to eat. Forest green tiles, iroko millwork, and custom brass lamps give the space a cozy. Gabriel Stulman, who runs a handful of intimate neighborhood bistros in Greenwich Village, teamed up with Chef Matt Griffin for the menu of cravable dishes like the little gem tonnato and casonsei pasta stuffed with sunchokes.
The restaurant’s menu harkens back to Tourondel’s memories of long Sunday suppers with his maternal, Italian grandmother, filled with memories of freshly flowing produce from his family’s garden that cultivated his own love for simply prepared dishes and precise techniques. The kitchen, visible throughout the dining room, as well as to passersby on Sixth Avenue, brings to life the diverse menu that includes Tourondel’s take on American favorites such as pizza, fired in twin copper-clad, wood-burning ovens, freshly extruded pastas, and selections of charcuterie.
This luxury restaurant has contemporary furniture and chose wood dining tables and chairs to mix the green and patterned space.
