Just across the Queensboro Bridge in Long Island City, you’ll find Penthouse 808 at the Ravel Hotel. This indoor-outdoor restaurant and lounge offers sweeping views of the Manhattan skyline. If you’re looking for cocktails, the bar has you covered. Order signature drinks like the Far Eastside with gin, cucumber, lime and black peppercorn or the Rising Tide with dark rum, spiced rum, caramelized pineapple-raspberry syrup and tiki syrup for one person or a crowd ($14 cocktail, $68 pitcher). Coming through with a crew? Penthouse 808 also offers two drinks—a rum punch with coconut milk and banana-blackberry syrup and fruity vodka concoction—in one- or two-gallon tiki heads ($75 for one gallon, $120 for two gallons). The restaurant serves Asian fusion cuisine like salmon tartare tacos ($17), a crispy duck, watermelon and cashew salad ($15), Hawaiian skirt steak ($29) and a sticky glazed pork belly rib ($29).
Our Hawaiian and Asian inspired pacific rim fare from executive Chef Seth Levine is served nightly for dinner. Mouthwatering menu items like the Angry Lobster which is served inside a bird cage and our 24oz Signature Rib Eye with grilled pineapple are two of our most popular dishes, along with our creative sushi dishes. All items on our menu are great for sharing or just simply enjoy traditionally a la carte.
The cocktail menu created complements menu items by using select spirits paired with fresh fruit and vegetables found throughout the Pacific Rim. Large format cocktails served in smoking Tiki heads are available and perfect for groups to share. Guests can also choose a bottle of wine or sake from our reserve list to accompany their meal.
