Geoffrey Zakarian has re-launched the iconic Palm Court at The Plaza hotel with a complete renovation helmed by Master Architect Thierry Despont. Zakarian showcases classic American menus from morning to evening, and while staying true to its original design intent, Despont has brought the grand feeling of Central Park indoors, with garden elements such as caning, large potted plants, four soaring palm trees and an oval trellised bar anchoring the room, creating an ambience that feels warm, private and glamorous. Bespoke furnishings provide a relaxed, yet elegant setting well-suited for either a professional breakfast meeting or an evening of cocktails crafted by infamous mixologist Brian Van Flandern. Afternoon Tea truly shines as well with custom tableware, a tea list with worldly depth, and of course, a bit of Eloise too. This elegant room marked with its stained glass dome and impressive height adds a touch of old New York to a very polished and modern sense of hospitality.

"A must do when in New York. We took our daughter when we were visiting over Christmas. It was wonderful. You get a lot of food! We ordered three afternoon teas and had plenty...too much. The university student took a doggie bag. It's not for those with short arms and deep pockets, but we thought it was worth every penny."

"You don't expect good food at a hotel restaurant, boy were we surprised. The food was outstanding and the service wonderful and attentive. I had the halibut and my husband had the chicken. Good size portions and seasoned perfectly. I have lactose intolerance that the chef de cuisine was wonderful and made my meal taste as if it was missing nothing."

"We had dinner before a show. The food and service was wonderful. We had a charcuterie plate to start and a couple of salads. Then a steak for me, delicious and my husband had the Saltanbucca again delicious (I tried it). Great wine list. This is a very busy restaurant and the tables are close together makes you feel like you are in Italy."

"We ordered the Hash Brown Stack and the Pork Cheeck Benedict. Both were delicious however very rich. I thought the stack was salty (lots of bacon) but that might have just been me as I don't use a lot of salt. The drink special was wonderful and refreshing. Service was very good."
