Astor Court: New York City’s Finest
Welcome to Astor Court, NYC’s hottest spot to wine and dine. Under the watchful eye of executive chef, James Ortiaga, every plate is delicately prepared to please even the pickiest palate. As scrumptious as the atmosphere is inviting, besides tickling your taste buds, Astor Court creates the sensuous sensation of being in a luxurious and utterly perfect private residence for dinner. Ready to make anything, on their elegant menu or off, they are in the business of spoiling their guests.
An atmosphere to swoon over and dishes that dazzle, this dreamy New York City haunt doesn’t disappoint! Our personal fave? The champagne risotto. Made with marscapone and parmesean cheese, add lobster and a choice of Veuve Clicquot Yellow label, 2009 Luis Roederer Brut Rosé, or Mumm Napa Brut Presitge – this dish is absolutely exquisite. It’s a must-taste!
Famous for their traditional afternoon tea as well as a killer Bloody Mary, there certainly are a lot of heavenly treats to enjoy. Born of a Astor family’s stately tradition, afternoon tea is an exquisite culinary journeys and certainly a guest favorite. The Bloody Mary was introduced under the name “Red Snapper” at the St. Regis in 1934. Serge Obolensky, a guest with an aristocratic Russian background, asked the then bartender, Petiot, to make the savory vodka cocktail he had in Paris, and so, the Bloody Mary made its debut. We can’t think of a better place to sip one!
