Arabelle at the Hotel Plaza Athenee
To breakfast at Arabelle isTo breakfast at Arabelle is to lay the foundations for a perfect day.
The atmosphere is elegant yet unpretentious, the service superb, and the food delicious beyond my powers of description.
Moreover, while most Upper East Side hotels cease to provide brekkers at half past ten, Arabelle dishes it up till a much more civilised eleven o'clock. The tea continues to flow as long as one requires it; and the waiters solicitously encourage one to linger until one is wholly prepared to face the world outside.
I felt so at home (and so very well-fed) that I've booked in to the Plaza-Athénée for my next trip to New York. A tremendous indulgence, but if you knew what I knew, you'd go too.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMArabelle is located in a theArabelle is located in a the beautiful Hotel Plaza Athenee. My friends and I were greeted warmly and led to a beautiful room where we ate the prix fixed lunch. Perfect for ladies, I am not sure my husband would have not needed to order off the main menu. The only down side is there are no windows in the room and there were only two other tables dining there. This restaurant suited our needs as we wanted something not too far from the Frick Museum, but if you were looking for something lively and more energetic you would have been disappointed.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is a true treasure.This place is a true treasure. Tony, our server, made our evening so very special. The food was divine, the wine perfect and one of the most romantic dinners ever!
