Featuring a distinctive culinary approach to cocktails and service, The Aviary NYC also includes The Office NYC, a speakeasy-style environment, balancing the world of old and new. The concept is Chef Achatz and Kokonas’ inaugural hotel partnership and first location outside of Chicago. Both spaces were designed by Tihany Design and are located on the hotel’s 35th floor. Reservations for The Aviary NYC are now available and can be made by visiting theaviarynyc.tocktix.com.
Drink Experience at The Aviary NYC
The Aviary NYC provides an interactive journey for guests, where inventive cocktails and small food plates complement the drink experience. Unique to the New York City location, The Aviary NYC offers an all-day menu where the team’s progressive and creative approach to inventing interesting flavor combinations are featured in unexpected ways.
Cocktail highlights include the Wake and Bake, inspired by breakfast in Manhattan. Featuring Aviary-selected single barrel rye whiskey, coffee and orange are infused into Vermouth and a pillow with the aroma of everything bagels is opened tableside revealing all of the aspects of a perfect morning in New York City: coffee, orange juice, a bagel and of course – whiskey.
Perfect for fall, the Boom Goes The Dynamite cocktail, is served hot and features two types of rums, vanilla bean infused rooibos tea, violet sugar and vanilla liquor which are poured into a decanter. Dry ice is added to release the aromatics of brewing tea allowing the cocktail to cool to a perfect temperature for drinking and to take the chill off of a cool autumn evening.
Food Menu at The Aviary NYC
Unlike the Chicago location, The Aviary NYC is the first to offer meal periods that extend beyond evening service.
Menus are offered as part of “All Day Dining” featuring breakfast, brunch and small lunch plates with “Evening Service” focusing on more substantial dinner plates. Menu highlights include Chef Grant’s signature Black Truffle Explosion plate, made famous at his Alinea restaurant, featuring ravioli filled with exploding truffle in liquefied form; Thai Pork Belly with young coconut and banana curry and A5 Miyazaki Wagyu with pickled young ginger, Tofu misozuke and yuzu kosho mustard.
Visitors to the space can also indulge in a memorable dining journey with two Chef’s Tables, seating up to two guests each. Here, guests can take in panoramic views of the city while receiving an up close and personal look into The Aviary NYC’s drink kitchen.
