Castell

OPENED425 DAYS AGO

The Spot:

Highlighting the iconic features of Spanish architecture, Castell (named after the Catalan word for ‘castle’) boasts strong geometry throughout the space, balanced with warm furnishings and textures. Inside, you’ll find a dining area and comfortable leather banquettes, while providing north and south facing views of Manhattan. The north facing wall takes you to the main attraction: the outdoor urban living room, right in the midst of Midtown’s skyscrapers.

The Food:

Castell’s Mediterranean influence comes shining through in the food offerings, featuring a variety of small bar snacks and shared plates. Highlights include eggplant and tomato confit toast, crispy sea salt potatoes with smoked paprika, and flatbread with white almond hummus. If you’re looking for something a little more substantial, Castell also offers larger dishes such as a Flatiron steak and grilled chicken skewers.

The Drinks:

The extensive drinks menu is the brainchild of Kieran Chavez, the beverage director at neighboring restaurant Boqueria. It features a wide variety of classic and signature cocktails, including a large martini selection and several variations on the gin and tonic.
