Imagine yourself sipping on a gorgeous rose while sitting by the pool and looking at the Empire State Building. Make it happen by heading to the Grill at La Piscine at the Hotel Americano.
I recently visited the Hotel Americano for a press event. It was held at their roof top, which is simply spectacular. There are three views: New Jersey, the Highline, and the Empire State Building.
This amazing rooftop resto/bar has an outdoor kitchen which specializes in New-Mediterranean cuisine. The food is lovely and I see this becoming a great date spot.
The restaurant does a deconstructed Greek salad. Simply superb. It comes in a shot glass with a bite of feta, red onion, cucumber, and olive. Let’s just say I had quite a few of these guilt-free treats.
Of course, as a Mediterranean restaurant, they do your basic spreads with pita: taramosalata (a fish roe spread), hummus, and baba ganoush. Simple, easy, tasty treats.
The Grill’s calamari was light, crunchy and flavorful.
Of course, like every other NYC restaurant, there were sliders. They did both lamb and beef. The sliders were juicy, tasty, and well executed.
It was hard to leave La Piscine. Seriously, check it out…and let me know what you think.
Hotel Americano is locate at 518 West 27th Street in Chelsea. (212) 525-0000
