The hotel's main restaurant is Fives, a name given due to the fact that the hotel is found on Fifth Avenue at 55th Street. It is very comfortable, sleek and intimate space which offers impeccable service (greeting by name, discretion, knowledge) and fine American-Asian cuisine courtesy of chef Thomas Piede. The tables are laid with crisp white tablecloths topped with Christofle cutlery and a delicate flower in the centre. It serves breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as brunch at the weekend. The morning starts with a traditional mix of continental and hot breakfasts including set breakfasts (Japanese, Chinese, fitness) and speciality dishes such as grilled Angus sirloin. Lunch beings with dishes including cavatelli pasta with braised veal, roasted peppers and manchego cheese and continues with salads, sandwiches or fish and meat dishes (sautéed Hawaiian bass, grilled chicken paillard). Finish off with coconut panna cotta or the chocolate crunch bar. Dinner features many of the same dishes with the addition of mains such as five spice duck breast and Colorado lamb chops. The restaurant has an adjacent bar serving wine by the glass, champagne and cocktails.
The Gotham Lounge, name after the hotel which occupied the building at its opening, is a library-themed lounge well-known for its afternoon teas (2.30pm-5pm). An elegant space with comfortable armchairs and frescos up above, it is perfect for small gatherings or an informal business meeting.
The hotel has a rooftop bar and terrace named Salon de Ning. Designed by Henry Leung in the style of a traditional shikumen, or stone gate house, it is named after a Shanghai socialite, Madame Ning who set up salons all over the world. The décor, including contemporary art by Yao Junzhong, Moroccan lanterns and Chinese daybeds, reflects her passion for collecting pieces on her travels. The bar has two terraces, one looking east, another west, with Fifth Avenue views. As well as serving cocktails and wine there is a sharing menu featuring such dishes as chilled shrimp, hummus and olives and smoked salmon tartare. It is an undoubtedly breath-taking space, although some parts are starting to show signs of wear and tear.
