Two of fall’s most-anticipated restaurants just opened in the Beekman Hotel

New Yorkers have been looking forward to the debut of the Beekman Hotel for months, not only for its genteel good looks but for the high-profile dining rooms inside the historic space. (The hotel is located inside an 1890s landmark building in the Financial District.)

Set side-by-side are the retrofied Fowler & Wells from Tom Colicchio (Craft, Riverpark) and big-ticket bistro Augustine from Keith McNally (Balthazar, Minetta Tavern). The former, named after a pair of phrenologists who once practiced in the building, nods to the old-school space with throwback dishes like oysters Rockefeller, chicory salad with pear and a lamb loin with niçoise olives.

Meanwhile, McNally's 90-seat French number features many signatures of the influential restaurateur (vintage mirrors, Art Nouveau tiles, globe-light fixtures), as does the menu: Cherche Midi co-chefs Shane McBride and Daniel Parilla serve updated brasserie staples like salt-baked oysters with Pernod butter; a soufflé au fromage loaded with Gruyère and Parmesan; and halibut en cocotte with black truffle and lobster jus. 

Check out the spaces and menus below.
