Enjoy NYC's Most Glamorous Dining Experience at Beautique
Just steps away from the iconic Plaza Hotel stands the elegant American restaurant, Beautique. Designed in the timeless style of the late Coco Chanel, this fine eatery serves some of the city’s most delightful market-fresh dishes and boasts an array of spring entrées that we cannot wait for you to try. Led by Michelin Star awarded Chef Alain Allegretti – who P.S. starred on Beat Bobby Flay the night before we visited the restaurant – Beautique gives diners the experience of savoring modern American food inside a chic French chateau setting. A few new menu items to look forward to this summer include: Tortilla de Patatas & Onions, Fluke Crudo and Cod. If we’re being honest though, anything you try at Beautique is a winner. This haute dining spot does not disappoint.
When we visited the beautiful local, we started off the night with a selection of appetizers: the Beautique Salad, Fried Gnocchi and my personal favorite, the Crab Cake. This perfect dish – although traditional in American cuisine – is quite difficult to master; at Beautique, it is made with shaved fennel, blood orange and Almond Romesco sauce, delish! We enjoyed this all with a chilled house special: The Maison Martini, a fresh summer cocktail made with Absolut Elyx, bitter truth elderflower, lemongrass, fresh pineapple and mint.
For the main entrée, we had the seasonal Cod, paired with baked Harissa, eggplant caponata, roasted carrots, crispy chickpeas, Cerignola green olives and mojo piccon sauce. It was everything. For every dish we tasted, the Chef insisted we try a different wine the would pair perfectly with the ingredients we were tasting. It was an unbelievable experience, and we truly recommend you take a look at Beautique’s extensive wine list next time you visit. We ended the night with the super rich chocolate fondant, made with caramelized popcorn and popcorn ice cream! It was incredible of course, though next time we dine there, we plan on trying out the orange brioche pudding made with matcha green tea ice cream and jalapeño powder. Food coma for life!
There was nothing we didn’t love about this tranquil and luxurious restaurant. Delicious food, deep red wine and warm lighting turned the night into a sophisticated Manhattan feast. We cannot wait to go back, and apparently, many celebs feel the same! One of Beautique’s many charms is that – thanks to its successful founder and NYC entrepreneur Jon Bakhshi – it has become an all-time favorite within the wealthy New York crowd. Fabulous fans include Elle MacPherson, Jon Bon Jovi, Liam Neeson, Jennifer Ohlsen, Sarah Silverman, Billy Joel, Pamela Anderson, Mick Jagger, Lisa Vanderpump, Ja Rule and Jennifer Lopez who actually celebrated her birthday at Beautique!
It’s all glam at this incredible Manhattan restaurant. Now also in South Hampton, Beautique is looking forward to hosting endless Day & Night parties this summer featuring tasty hors d’oeuvres, craft cocktails and an ultra chic crowd. We’ll see you there!
