Highs & Lows

  • The Bar Room (located in the atrium) feels very much like an old-school private club – opulent and dimly-lit. An excellent date spot.

  • The indelible and unique architecture of the Victorian atrium + pyramidal skylight. The amount of care and attention to detail that went into the restoration is very apparent.

  • Augustine, the restaurant. The service, food, décor was all impeccable. It gets packed, so reservation is recommended.

  • The Financial District location. If I were visiting NYC, I might prefer another neighborhood that was more buzzing. However, apparently, many new things are coming to this area.
