An all-day neighborhood mainstay serving rustic American cooking with heart and soul.

A bustling oyster bar focused on seafood and seasonal American fare.

A classic West Village bar reborn as a supper club with creative cocktails and inspired cooking.

An all day cafe that turns into a killer wine bar at night. 

A lively and laid back corner gastropub that's serious about food and drinks.

This second floor window-wrapped, corner spot is drenched in sun by day and lit by the streets at night.  The Studio’s North African and Near East inflected menu makes it the place to dine from breakfast until late.

Set inside the former Library Room of the original George Washington Hotel is a distinguished place to enjoy sophisticated cocktails with laid back vibes.

Simon & The Whale is a vibrant neighborhood restaurant serving American food from Executive Chef Matt Griffin.

Located in Manhattan’s Flatiron District, Freehand New York is housed in the former George Washington Hotel—once home to many storied writers, musicians and creatives. Designed by Roman and Williams and featuring custom-commissioned artwork by Bard College students and alumni throughout, we’re revitalizing the artistic community in a historic NY neighborhood.
