The American-style eatery takes its design nods from “New York power dining rooms” with plenty of opulent beaux-arts touches. Designed by Mark Lehmkuhl of Ghost House Creative Group, it features large leopard print booths, exposed brick, street-art style murals, velvet banquettes, French tile, oak floors, and a lot of gold touches. A check-in desk with keys greets guests, as does a neon “Heartbreak Hotel” sign and an elevator to nowhere serves as a photo opp as guests “check in.”
On the menu diners can expect old school classics with an updated spin. Think oysters, truffle caviar deviled eggs, waygu burgers, prime rib, salmon, and banana splits. There’s also a small sushi bar helmed by chef Sylvio Richardson, formerly of Nobu, that makes rolls like salmon caviar rolls, wagyu “surf and turf” rolls, and other maki rolls. The bar boasts a large selection of cocktails, along with comprehensive wine program and plenty of offerings by the glass. A Saturday and Sunday Brunch called “Room Service” is also planned in a few months time.
