Indulge in contemporary American fare with a Parisian touch at this high-end underground hotspot. Beautique neighbors iconic sites such as The Paris Theater, Central Park and the Plaza Hotel, making it a popular destination for chic international visitors, actors and models. The romantic interior is modeled after Coco Chanel’s Paris apartment, and is artfully decorated with chandeliers and velvet seating. The venue spares no expense; the ceilings are leafed in gold and the fabrics are Jean-Paul Gaultier. Vera Wang china sits neatly on the tables. Those not looking closely might miss the Andy Warhol’s hanging nonchalantly from the walls. In the late evening, Beautique’s lounge transforms into a lavish nightclub, drawing crowds of luxe partygoers.
The Stanton Social
This sleek restaurant and lounge is a collaboration by celebrity chef Chris Santos and Tao Group owner Rich Wolf. Avroko, a James Beard winning interior design firm, was recruited to create the eclectic ambiance that is this gem’s signature. The interior draws inspiration from the LES garment industry and the textiles of the 1940’s. This reflects in the fringed chandeliers, the lizard skin seating and the backlit herringbone wine wall. Colorful small plates are served each night alongside inventive craft cocktails, and DJ’d sets pulse through the multi-level bar. It’s a prime location for happy hour networking, celeb-spotting, and champagne-drenched Sunday brunches.
Package includes a modern 3-course meal at Beautique and the option of cocktails or bottle service at The Stanton Social. Ground transportation can be provided upon request.
