The Aviary NYC to open at Mandarin Oriental, New York
April 3, 2017: Mandarin Oriental, New York and Chicago-based co-owners Chef Grant Achatz and Nick Kokonas of the widely-acclaimed Alinea Group have pronounced the opening of The Aviary NYC in summer 2017. The concept is Chef Achatz and Kokonas’ inaugural hotel partnership and first location outside of Chicago.
Following the success of the award-winning Aviary in Chicago, The Aviary NYC will deliver a distinctive culinary approach to cocktails and service. Guests will enjoy an interactive experience, featuring an open kitchen where inventive cocktails and small food plates that complement the drink experience, will be masterminded by chefs and bartenders.
Set on the 35th floor of the hotel, The Aviary NYC will comprise 90 seats and feature sweeping views of Central Park and the New York City skyline. An adjacent space, The Office, will provide a speakeasy-style cloistered and more private environment, with 40 seats. This will feature world-class rare spirits collection, classic cocktails, and an entirely different food menu from that offered at The Aviary.
