Great cocktails ready at The Wayfarer in midtown Manhattan
Inventive cocktails and great bites make this new spot worth checking out.
Assuming you’re an honest person, you only get to say "This is my first time doing events coverage" once. But as I wandered from booth to booth studying The Wayfarer’s 1800s-meets-1970s décor and dodging trays of tuna tartare and pickled beet salad and lobster rolls, I wondered if I’d speak to anyone at all. Then I met Jermaine. A waiter who’d begun training with the rest of the wait staff several weeks previous and who was as blown away by the place as any guest could hope to be, Jermaine had nothing but positives to share about the artisanal seafood restaurant nestled inside The Quin Hotel. "It’s a nice place for people to come and hang out, and everyone will leave full. And drunk." And he wasn’t wrong. I told him this was my first press event, and he told me I couldn’t leave until I’d tried every cocktail served that evening. Now that’s hospitality.
Jermaine started me off with a boozy Man About Town, mixologist Christian Sanders’ take on the classic Manhattan. Far from traditional, the Man About Town is dark and sweet, with Green Chartreuse, Carpano Antica and Averna complimenting the Woodford Reserve, and — SPOILER ALERT! — a smoky, bourbon-soaked cherry waiting at the bottom of the glass. This was followed by their light, delicious take on a margarita, with a paprika salt rim that made me grateful I was there alone and could surreptitiously lick the glass before my last cocktail arrived. The Wayfarer’s signature drink shares its name with the restaurant, and made with a Polish bison grass vodka, lime, agave, baked apple and celery bitters, and dusted with black cardamom, it’s truly a destination cocktail.
Fortified by three delicious cocktails, I made my way to the bar and chatted with the bartenders and wait staff as they filled and refilled their trays with drinks. I don’t think anyone in the room was having more fun than those guys. And, because happy service leads to happy guests, the Wayfarer felt joyous that night. Everything Jermaine had said was right: I left my first press event full of food and good company. And a little drunk.
NYC Travel: The Quin Hotel

A luxury boutique hotel placed conveniently at 57th and 6th avenue in New York city, the Quin hotel is on my short list of favorite hotels in New York city. Just two blocks from central park and an avenue away from either Broadway or 5th, the Quin Hotel allows you to stay pampered while visiting one of the most exciting and demanding cities in the world.
A full service oasis, the Quin's modern and opulent interior greets you from the first steps inside with a calm and peaceful energy. The two story marble lobby creates an immediate bubble of privacy directly off one of NYC's busiest streets and continues as you head to your room through the refined walls of the foyer.
The architectural design is focused on height. The tall ceilings in the hallways and rooms create a European feel and even hints at post-war Manhattan when materials were cheap and architects were free to be expansive. This makes each room feel generous and unrestricted. The rooms are luxurious and well appointed with sophisticated modern interiors. One finds oneself taking an unconscious breath of relaxation viewing the clean modern lines on the elegant décor.
At 208 rooms the hotel remains small enough to feel intimate but also have excellent customer service. This is an obvious advantage of boutique hotels, a choice I always prefer to stay in if I can, and one which I came to appreciate first hand most notably when a bag of mine was momentarily misplaced. The hotel solved the problem within 15 minutes with two people working on it. The speed and efficiency of solving the problem was appreciated and impressive.

Standard rooms are queen and king, as well as two junior and three full size suites. I had the advantage of staying in the master penthouse balcony suite, one of only five rooms with a full balcony on the 17th floor that made my stay in New York City memorable. The balcony suite has a separate living room and a marble bathroom with a walk in shower with room to spare as well as an extraordinary shower system sporting three shower heads in two columns, including a massive overhead that turned the glass walled experience into a rain room.
I find the success of a luxury hotel evident when it's challenging to leave one's room. That is in full force at the Quin, nevertheless I rose to the challenge to explore the gym on the second floor. Modern and well designed for a smaller gym, it incorporated enough equipment, weights, treadmills, and a multipurpose nautilus machine that a gym enthusiast like me could easily do a full work out with no limitations. This dedication is a must I find while traveling and I was quite happy with the experience. A glass window looking out across the lobby below and to 57th street outside, reminded me of adventures to come I had planned by car, train and on foot, so was a welcome site. A refrigerator with complimentary waters and Gatorade is provided at the gym as well as a clean towel rack.
Living room Terrace Suite
The Hotel Quin Arts program honors the tradition of great artists who had been at this address long before me, including Georgia O'Keefe and Marc Chagall. The art on display during my visit was a Berlin-based artist named "Above", though the hotel's curator keeps collections ever changing, as well as sometimes projecting grand displays on the lobby's 15-foot abstract video art wall, which are specifically created for the hotel.
Balcony Terrace, corner suite
I'm a busy traveler and visited both Chinatown as well as Lincoln Center during my short stay, as well as seeing a dear friend in midtown on 5th avenue. But returning to the hotel became one of the high points of my stay, knowing the comfort that awaited me. My location couldn't have been more convenient, as the Quin is nestled inbetween mass transportation, taxi stops and of course most of midtown which is just a walk through one of my favorite cities in the world and which is always my preference.
Balcony terrace looking north to Central Park
The attached restaurant, The Wayfarer, is an American Grille with a classic American menu and gets an excellent rating, though I didn't have the opportunity to try it myself. Notably, the restaurant provides room service that is 24 hours, which is not always customary in the hotel world, even in NYC.
For a luxury stay at an elegant and upscale boutique hotel The Quin provided exemplary comfort and a refined luxurious modern atmosphere with every convenience.
Hotel rooms a the Quin come with free wi-fi, a complimentary espresso machine is available in each room as well as a standard mini bar, a full gym on the second floor, 24 hour concierge service, as well as valet parking.

Gearing up for a second act, Midtown Manhattan’s storied, music-centric Buckingham Hotel, which hosted a slew of maestros, opera greats, and jazz virtuosos in its 82-year history, will reopen this Fall as The Quin (101 West 57th St. thequinhotel.com doubles from US$499). A tip-to-toe renovation by architectural design firm Perkins Eastman has upped the 1929 Beaux-Arts building’s room count from 104 to 200, making the warm-toned guest quarters smaller but more sophisticated. As a further enticement to culture buffs, the hotel will feature a permanent gallery of paintings by Irish artist Patrick Graham, as well as a salon that pays homage to onetime resident Georgia O’Keeffe. Its location, however, remains among its top draws: Carnegie Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center, and the Museum of Modern Art are just a short stroll away.

The Quin Hotel: A Contemporary & Artistic Gem in New York City
Looking for total cultural immersion on your next trip to New York City? A truly unique, art-filled stay awaits at The Quin Hotel in the heart of Manhattan. Guests can experience award-winning luxury in a city full of inspired art, but the creative atmosphere doesn’t end once you’ve entered their sliding doors! Discover your muse in a hotel that has housed great artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe and Marc Chagall and experience rooms and suites specifically designed for admirers of the arts.
Located at the edge of Central Park, the Quin gives guests the rare chance to experience tranquility while in the midst of a bustling city. You truly get the best of both worlds!
There are 208 Guest Rooms and suites which include the 17 th Floor Terrace Rooms & Suites as well as the magnificent Penthouse, designed with modern feature comforts and spectacular views. Materials used in these rooms were meticulously chosen for style and sustainability, and the contemporary aesthetic effortlessly blends in with the familiar indulgences of a luxury hotel. Guest Room options include Superior, Deluxe, and Premier, or guests can enjoy the expansive Premier, Private, and Terrace Suites, the last of which comprises astounding panoramic views of Central Park and Sixth Avenue with an outside seating area that you will be unable to tear yourself away from. The cherry on top is the Penthouse option found on the top three floors of the hotel: 3,400 square feet with a private foyer, two furnished balconies, and 1,300 square feet of patio that can hold over 30 people are just some of the jaw-dropping comforts included, not to mention select artwork curated by DK Johnston.
My room was a Corner Premier Room and offered views of both 6th Avenue and 57th Street. Although right in the middle of everything, the thick windows blocked out all of the city noise. I really enjoyed the plush bed, ample work space, and modern features. Although the interiors are extremely contemporary, there is still a cozy and comfortable feeling to the room.
The bathroom was elegantly designed and very spacious! I especially loved the marble sink and fabulous lighting around the mirror. All the amenities you could possibly want are there for you, including robes, slippers, hair products, and more.
They even had a nice surprise waiting for me, a tray of chocolate-covered strawberries. Little touches like these helped to make my stay an inviting and memorable experience.
While the Quin staff are well-acquainted with recommendations for the best local eateries, The Wayfarer at the Quin is top-notch for savoring “the quintessence” of New York City. An American Grille that is open to locals and hotel guests alike, it is an ideal spot to rendezvous in a congenial atmosphere over classic food or at the club-room bar on the second floor. The Wayfarer serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily which is very convenient.
Lucky for me, The Wayfarer is easily accessible from The Quin Hotel lobby and so I went there more morning for breakfast. The omelet sandwich and the french toast with extra bananas were my favorite dishes!
We actually celebrated a friend’s birthday at the Wayfarer for dinner and they did not disappoint! The staff there make you feel so welcome and offered to take our photos!
A strong relationship with the arts contributes to the je ne sais quoi of the Quin Hotel. Quin Arts, the hotel’s interactive arts program, is a dedication to expanding the arts and showcasing contemporary artists. By providing a space for assorted exhibitions, diverse lectures, and a myriad of events such as film premiers and even musical performances, the Quin’s relationship with innovative artists allows guests to interact with New York from within the hotel’s doors. With a legacy of housing Andy Warhol’s lithographs in the 60s and 70s, the Quin will undoubtedly continue to persevere in upholding such a tremendous and prestigious heritage.
The Quin continues to outdo itself with a myriad of services and treatments dedicated to the wellness of all guests. Not only is there a fully-equipped gym with modern conveniences for your work-out, but there are personal trainers and private yoga instructors available upon request. The Quin has partnered with NOMI Beauty and Bergdorf Goodman should guests desire an in-room hair and makeup service or a chance to confer with an expert stylist for pleasure or an event.
A paragon of sophistication and a unique opportunity for total artistic immersion, The Quin offers guests a “quintessential” New York experience!
Wayfarer Restaurant Teams With ESquared To Anchor NYC’s Quin Hotel
The duo will debut The Wayfarer, an artisanal American grill designed to showcase a diverse selection of regional seafood. The two-story restaurant and lounge will evoke the experience of an old gentlemen&rsquos club historical New York glamour.
Designer Meyer Davis has created a feeling of &ldquoold meets new,&rdquo drawing inspiration from the 1970&rsquos blended with the classic New York of the 1800&rsquos. Guests will be treated to a variety of different experiences throughout the restaurant starting with the grand parlor punctuated by a staircase that will lead to the second floor lounge and private dining areas. The 130-seat dining room will be furnished in rich leathers and woods inspired by New York&rsquos old gentlemen&rsquos clubs. The first floor centerpiece, the main bar, will be constructed out of grand pewter and glazed brick to generate an energetic vibe upon entry. The second floor mezzanine provides a more relaxed dining experience with a 20-foot bar and additional lounge seating. The second floor also offers three private dining rooms designed for seating combinations that can accommodate parties from 12 to 72 guests.
&ldquoWe are excited to be launching The Wayfarer restaurant at the Quin,&rdquo said Lisle Richards and Eric Marx. &ldquoThe hotel&rsquos commitment to quality is akin to our philosophy that guests should always be the centerpiece of an amazing hospitality experience. The addition of The Wayfarer to the Quin will provide a level of service and refinement that welcomes diverse global communities.&rdquo
Marx and Richards have managed many of New York&rsquos venues for hospitality companies such as Gerber Group, One Group, and the Gansevoort Hotel Group. &ldquoThe vision for The Wayfarer is perfectly aligned with the Quin&rsquos mission to provide an urbane retreat in the heart of Manhattan,&rdquo states Alan Kanders, principal of Three Wall Capital. &ldquoMuch like the Quin, the restaurant will embrace the glamour of old New York while also offering modern comforts and services fitting for such an establishment.&rdquo
Situated on 57th Street, a short block away from Carnegie Hall, stands an elegant 18-story pre-War building with a history that is fully intertwined with an entire era of world-class music. The former Buckingham Hotel, once home to icons like Paderewski and Tebaldi, has been rechristened the Quin and re-imagined as a new luxury hotel where art, design and nature blend seamlessly to create a sanctuary from the city at an incomparably central address.
The hotel is operated by Highgate Hotels, a leading independent hospitality management company, the Quin lies in the midst of the 57th Street gallery district, a mere block away from the grandest of the Fifth Avenue retailers, and within easy walking-distance to Lincoln Center, the Museum of Modern Art and Rockefeller Plaza. The Quin aims to deliver nothing less than the essence of New York in an atmosphere of serene elegance that is perfectly calibrated to revitalize travelers partaking in the multifarious forms of magic that lie just outside its doors.
In 1929, the handsome Buckingham Hotel opened its doors on one of Manhattan's choicest corners: 57th Street and Sixth Avenue. One of its first tenants was also one of the world's most famous musicians: Legacy Jan Paderewski, the pianist and composer who was the first Prime Minister of Poland. Paderewski lived in the hotel until his death in 1941, when mourners lined up around the block to pay their respects. Others who made their home at The Buckingham in the first half of the 20th Century include Academy Award-winning composer Dmitri Tiomkin, Metropolitan Opera stars Giuseppe De Luca and Giovanni Martinelli, and actor Max Hoffman Jr.
From the s onward, its reputation as the preferred home for the musical elite firmly established, The Buckingham was the Manhattan address for Met stalwarts Paul Schöffler, Victoria de los Angeles, and for almost 20 years celebrated soprano Renata Tebaldi. Broadway's Bobby Van and legendary saxophonist Gato Barbieri were also guests, as was opera star Regina Resnik, who generously loaned the hotel her husband Arbit Blatas's oil portraits of cellist Mstislav Rostropovich and pianist Arthur Rubenstein.
Today, this storied address is being re-fashioned as the ultimate urban refuge and perhaps the city's most ideally situated luxury hotel. This sanctuary from the city in the center of the city will offer unparalleled personal service, including dedicated “Quintessential Assistants” who are there to anticipate guests' every need a signature haute-American restaurant with a major chef at its helm a state-of-the-art Fitness Center with top-of-the-line Technogym equipment, and trainers offering customized exercise plans a spa partnership with Fresh® and a state of the art Business Center. Luxurious public spaces will celebrate the hotel's artistic heritage, with a permanent gallery featuring the works of acclaimed Irish painter Patrick Graham, and a restaurant menu featuring light fare, destined to become a prime addition to the city's roster of pre- and post-show gathering spots.
As re-conceived by renowned architecture and design firm Perkins Eastman, the Quin's 200 elegantly appointed rooms will include 11 junior suites, 10 one-bedroom suites, and specialty suites including the Iegendary Paderewski Suite, the Georgia O'Keefe Suite, the Blackbird Suite, including a corner terrace and named after Irish artist Patrick Graham's series of artwork located in the hotel lobby.
Additionally, the Quin will offer a breathtaking triplex specialty suite that is among the city's largest and most exquisite accommodations. The 2 -bedroom, 2 1/2 bath marvel is appointed with Carrera Venetino marble, rich walnut floors, a 1,200 square foot terrace overlooking Central Park and two additional terraces flanking the suite's two bedrooms. Guests of the triplex specialty suite will enjoy in-suite check-in, complimentary breakfast, and ongoing use of a Quintessential Assistant.
When it opens its doors in winter 2012, the Quin will occupy a unique place in the city's firmament of luxury hotels. Seamlessly uniting its rich musical history with distinctly 21st-Century finesse, the hotel serves up timeless elegance and contemporary flair in equal parts. The team behind the transformation speaks of the Quin as a “refined refuge,” a “sanctuary in the city” and “a haven of Arcadian calm.”
But they are also quick to point out its peerless location at “the crossroads of cosmopolitan cool,” making the Quin an ideal home base for daytime shopping sprees at Bergdorf Goodman, Tiffany and Henri Bendel magical nights at the symphony, opera and Broadway stage leisurely strolls through Central Park feasting on art at nearby museums and the 80+ galleries that line the surrounding blocks and dining in some of the city's (if not the world's) finest restaurants – Per Se, Masa, and Le Bernardin among them.
Uniting the stimulating world around the Quin and the peaceful retreat within its walls is an incomparable group of hospitality pros. The Quin staff place a premium on warmth and welcome, personal attention, and (fittingly, given the building's illustrious heritage) creating a home for those whose personal or professional ambitions have led them to the very center of the city – this remarkable crossroads of art, culture, commerce and leisure. In their capable hands, the traveler is able to experience exactly the city that he or she came to see. And just as the Quin provides a gateway to the magic of Manhattan, it also delivers on the promise of what a great urban hotel should be.
Off the Menu
The long lines that have snaked every weekend outside this Upper West Side brunch mainstay are about to relocate. Carrie Levin, who was a pioneer on Amsterdam Avenue in 1981, is moving her restaurant, complete with the white picket fence and cutouts of farm animals, to Columbus Avenue, having suddenly discovered she was in a high-rent district. She has gone into partnership with Jeremy Wladis, whose restaurant group owns a number of places in the neighborhood, and she will occupy what was his A. G. Bistro. Her menu of American comfort food — including breakfast fare, traditional turkey dinners year-round, meatloaf and coconut cake — will not change. (Opens Thursday): 520 Columbus Avenue (85th Street), (212) 496-0163, goodenoughtoeat.com.
THE BACK ROOM AT SUGAR AND PLUMM A slightly different version of Sugar and Plumm, the Upper West Side sweets emporium and restaurant, opened a couple of months ago on Bleecker Street mostly for retail, not eating in. Now, just around the corner, this new addition, more soda shop than candy store, serves milk shakes, sundaes, smoothies and puffy little Danish pancakes called ebelskivers: 257 Bleecker Street (Cornelia Street) and 36 Cornelia Street (Bleecker Street), (212) 388-5757, sugarandplumm.com.
ESTELA When the chef Ignacio Mattos makes a move, the culinary cutting edge generally notices. His cooking invariably involves sophisticated surprise witness his stint at Taavo Somer’s Isa in Brooklyn. Now he is at this spot above Botanica, with its own entrance in what was once the Knitting Factory. It’s a partnership with the owner, Mark Connell, and the sommelier, Thomas Carter, who was at Blue Hill at Stone Barns. Small plates and big are often touched with the culinary fairy dust called umami. You may detect anchovies on the hanger steak and fish sauce on the beef. Homemade matzo with sardines and gnocchi with spring peas might also tempt you, along with smart cocktails and European wines. (Tuesday): 47 East Houston Street (Mulberry Street), (212) 219-7693, estelanyc.com
LIC FLEA & FOOD Not all 70 vendors at this new weekend summer market overlooking the East River will sell food, but count on Luke’s Lobster, J. J.’s Asian Fusion, Horman’s Pickles and M. Wells Dinette, among others, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Saturday): 5-22 46th Avenue, Long Island City, Queens, (718) 866-8089, licflea.com.
OLD SCHOOL BROOKLYN This place says it takes its cue from immigrant grandma cooking, the kind that involves plenty of tomato sauce. Gnocchi and cavatelli comply. But what’s with the baby vegetables and apricot chutney? 520 Court Street (Huntington Street), Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn (718) 407-0047 oldschoolbk.com.
ZZ’S CLAM BAR Rich Torrisi, Jeff Zalaznick and Mario Carbone, who have taken Italian-American cuisine up a few notches at three restaurants in New York, have abandoned plans to open Lobster Club, a sandwich place, down the block from their Greenwich Village restaurant Carbone. Instead, they are on track to open this clam bar in that space. “We’ve wanted to do a clam bar for a while,” said Mr. Zalaznick, whose nickname is ZZ. But this one won’t seem straight out of Little Italy. There will be an emphasis on small plates of fish crudo dishes, a raw bar and seasonal cocktails. It will be open for dinner only, Tuesday to Saturday, with 12 seats and waiter service, and will take reservations. (Saturday): 169 Thompson Street (Bleecker Street), (212) 254-3000, zzsclambar.com.
What to Cook This Weekend
Sam Sifton has menu suggestions for the weekend. There are thousands of ideas for what to cook waiting for you on New York Times Cooking.
- Gabrielle Hamilton’s ranchero sauce is great for huevos rancheros, or poach shrimp or cubed swordfish in it.
- If you’re planning to grill, consider grilled chicken skewers with tarragon and yogurt. Also this grilled eggplant salad.
- Or how about a simple hot-dog party, with toppings and condiments galore?
- These are good days to make a simple strawberry tart, the blueberry cobbler from Chez Panisse, or apricot bread pudding.
- If you have some morels, try this shockingly good pan-roasted chicken in cream sauce from the chef Angie Mar.
MONARCH Carts with servers concocting cocktails and ice cream sundaes will patrol this big American restaurant in an industrial building across from Chelsea Market. It is to open in August with Michael Citarella, formerly of Freeman’s, in the kitchen: 408 West 15th Street.
WAYFARER This seafood grill in the new Quin hotel will be a partnership among Eric Marx and Lisle Richards, and Jimmy Haber of ESquared.

PASQUALE COZZOLINO, who was at PizzArte, is the new chef at Ribalta in Greenwich Village.
KAREN DEMASCO, the pastry chef at Locanda Verde, will leave this week. Nancy Tran will replace her. Another pastry chef, Nancy Olson, will leave Gramercy Tavern at the end of this month, with no replacement determined.

Happy Friday, everyone!! I wanted to share a few more photos I snapped on my camera from our time in NYC. Before heading to the Hamptons for the week we stayed at our favorite hotel in the city, The Quin Hotel!!
