The Aviary

OPENED75 DAYS AGO

Award-winning cocktail bar and, arguably, one of the best in the world, The Aviary (from Chicago), has now landed in New York. Hot off the heels of just launching their speakeasy bar, The Office, the team has now got their full set and are settling in well to their new home of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Columbus Circle.

The Spot:

Chef Grant Achatz and Nick Kokonas, who first launched The Aviary in Chicago and received an abundance of recognition including best bar program from the James Beard Foundation, have now opened their second location. Sitting atop the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, guests are greeted with incredible views of Central Park but, the real views are sat right in front of you – the cocktails.

The Drinks:

The bar program is filled with cocktail and culinary wizardry like drinks that come in a cloud of smoke and unique plating. One particularly unique cocktail is the ‘Wake and Bake’ – an OJ and coffee cocktail, meant to evoke the coffee and bagel routine that classic New Yorkers go through. It comes in a plastic bag that has been pumped with the aroma of an everything bagel.

The Food:

The food is largely Japanese inspired and includes equally exciting choices like a black truffle explosion, octopus croquettes and pork belly curry. For dessert there’s Okinawa brown sugar ice cream served with matcha, white chocolate and puffed rice.

The Damage:

Cocktails range from $18-$28 with food between $11 and $29. There are options for a five-course tasting menu of cocktails and canapés for $135 pp and a three-course cocktail tasting for $90 pp.

In A Nutshell:

These guys only take reservations a week or so in advance and they fill up quick! Get in while you can and make it a special occasion.
