Our gift to you as the season of giving approaches: two treasures we’re loving right now. While #teamPARTNER are experts at customer experience, we are also experts in something else: New York City. Whether born and raised here or avid explorers, we are constantly searching for experiential (new & slightly hidden) treasures in this city. What are we currently excited about? Retail restaurants, because shopping and eating are two of our favorite things!
Tucked into interior design powerhouse Roman & Williams Guild (photo above), and a few blocks from our office, you will find the La Franc table (top photo) at La Mercerie. Smooth leather, bright wood, and custom florals adorn this 6-8 person table available for a one-of-a-kind dining experience. While this isn’t a private room, you will feel a world away from the restaurant 30 feet away. A designated server will oversee your experience in the heart of this design sanctuary while enjoying elevated French café fare from celebrated Chef Marie-Aude Rose. Did we mention everything on your table is available for purchase (photo below)? Talk about #dinnergoals!
Perched atop a 6 story glass, steel and brick structure, RH Rooftop Restaurant is an oasis in the Meatpacking district (housed in the former Pastis space) and a collaboration with the furniture store formerly known as Restoration Hardware. This new rooftop restaurant offers a "seasonal, ingredient-driven menu". As one would expect from the luxe furniture store, the restaurant is adorned with manicured shrubbery, crystal chandeliers and elegant furniture (photo below). Did we mention there is a wine terrace with striking views of downtown Manhattan? Unlike at La Mercerie however, none of the furniture is for sale at RH Rooftop.
