When the Archer Hotel opens this spring, the boutique hotel in Manhattan’s Garment District will feature a new restaurant by celebrity chef David Burke.
Set inside the 21-story exposed steel and brick hotel on West 38th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, the hotel will feature David Burke’s lobby-level restaurant, and a rooftop bar serving handcrafted cocktails and “shareable small bites” with a view of the Empire State and Chrysler buildings, according to a hotel press release and the hotel website.
The unnamed restaurant will feature an open kitchen and serve modern American fare. No further details have been revealed.
Burke in the Box room service will be available in each of the Archer Hotel’s 180 rooms, each crafted in one of four designs and stocked with Nespresso coffee, a minibar, and free Internet access. The actual room service menu has yet to be announced; however, according to David Burke’s website, Burke in the Box is the chef’s eat-in/take-out restaurant inside Bloomingdale’s in Manhattan, which serves burgers like the Juicy Burkey; salads like the Large Market Salad with green beans, apples, tomatoes, and bacon; and specialties like bacon and lobster mac and cheese.
The hotel also boasts a fitness room and a carefully curated art collection on display throughout the hotel.
While an official opening date has yet to be announced, the Archer Hotel is currently accepting reservations for stays beginning June 1, 2014.
