The Oak Room (at the Plaza Hotel)

Critics' pick
The Oak Room
Midtown West
This landmark restaurant inside the Plaza Hotel has shaken off its tourist trap manacles with new talent in the kitchen: Eric Hara. The nostalgic menu offers muted opulence in the form of an ethereal lasagna filled with Jerusalem artichoke cream and shrouded in shaved truffles. Waiters in pin-striped vests deliver updated classics, like a duck à l’orange—a whole breast in a sweet-sticky kumquat-mustard glaze, with candied kumquats and cheesy polenta on the side. Close the meal with a delicate chocolate cigar, which recalls the Oak Room’s beginnings as a smoky men’s club.
