Set on the ground floor of the vibrant boutique hotel, Archer New York is the inviting yet industrial David Burke fabrick. <br />From the Latin ‘faber’, meaning ‘artisan’, fabrick’s moniker is a nod to the brick & mortar facades of the historic Garment District, the bricks of pink Himalayan salt that line Chef Burke’s patented beef dry-aging room, and to New York City. <br />Guests may gather under the airy skylight or in hidden pockets at intimate tables to sample from the modern American menu emphasizing sharing and seasonality. True to form, Chef Burke's fabrick menu will feature a variety of playful yet polished dishes ranging from snacks and small plates, vegetarian & classic American dishes to hearty entrees and indulgent desserts. <br />Guests may imbibe in a refined cocktail and some light bites in the Archer lobby’s Bugatti Bar. Sidle up to the lounge for a pre-dinner aperitif or, in the warmer months, relax outside in the hotel’s outdoor patio with a signature cocktail.

"The skin & bones is a must along with the lobster dumplings, salmon with chickpea fries and asparagus side. Try the banana split and ask for the strawberry magic. You won't regret it."

Kingside, located on West 57th street, features Chef Marc Murphy's interpretation of New American Cooking, alongside Gerber Group's renowned bar program of handcrafted cocktails. The accessible menu will take its inspiration from Murphy’s childhood, highlighting items that trace back to his French heritage, Italian roots, American schooling and his love of travel. In addition to an extensive raw and crudo bar, appetizers will include charcuterie and cheeses, salads and small plates, while larger entrees will feature pastas, fish and meats with an emphasis on sharing, including some items, such as a 26 oz. Cowboy Ribeye and a Roasted Chicken meant to be ordered for two.

"I cannot get enough of Kingside. The salmon crudo was fresh and flavorful. The lobster rolls were heavenly. And that caramel pudding is sinful."

"From the Pan Am girl rolling adult otter pops around the restaurant to the creative dim sum carts making their way from table to table, a night at The Church Key is one to remember. Sip on the Chai Fashioned and nibble on the chicken liver mousse, English pea hummus and tuna tartare."

Great Maple is a simple declaration and appreciation for Seasonal Produce, Responsible Seafood and Farm Fresh American Meat. We show our love of these great gifts as we protect and serve them in a room created for libation and conversation. A European Dinette in America. To be without pretense and celebrate daily Seasonal items and of course pies!

Gaspar is a French restaurant reminiscent of a Parisian brasserie with modern mid-20th century flair, it is allure and intrigue, transporting guests to a time long past with the flavor and style of a classic French locale with a creatively avant-garde twist. Inspired by the romantic bustling Paris of old, and centered on extraordinary food, drink, and hospitality - Gaspar is an exciting complement to the bustling Financial District while offering a dynamic shift in the city’s landscape of restaurants. Gaspar cuisine, helmed by Executive Chef Chris Jones, showcases a menu of approachable brasserie fare comprised of classic French dishes, with the local Northern California landscape (bounty instead) woven throughout.

"We had a group of six and opted for the chef's tasting. It was such a treat! From smoked olives to veal sweetbreads, we were tantalized. The short rib and the lamb tartare were my absolute favorites. Plus, the gut and grits cocktail - I'm still dreaming about it."
