Manhattan is known for taking dining to the next level. So, it should come as no surprise that Four Seasons Hotel New York is taking “elevated service” to new heights this spring with its Meals in the Sky menus – private dining experiences that can be served as high as 700 feet (213 metres) above Midtown Manhattan.
Beginning April 2016, guests who reserve one of the Hotel’s Terrace Deluxe Rooms (there are 13), Terrace Park-View Executive Suites (there are two) or Speciality Suites (there are four) will receive a Meals in the Sky invitation. Upon check-in, each guest will be invited to join a culinary tour de force private dining experience that takes place on the guest’s terrace. Each menu can be completely customised, but the Hotel has prepared suggestions so that guests can maximise their Four Seasons Hotel New York experience and still make the decision process easy.
“I have spent the majority of my adult life in Southern California, and when I moved to New York and quickly learned to celebrate spring. Spring is a great time to visit Manhattan and it felt natural to welcome it, uniquely, at Four Seasons. Thanks to our terraces and our culinary talents, guests of Four Seasons Hotel New York can celebrate spring in a uniquely New York way,” says Mehdi Eftekari, the Hotel’s General Manager.
Eftekari, a former Newport Beach and Beverly Hills resident, continues: “In California, you have sunshine all the time. Great weather is practically a given in places like LA. New Yorkers, on the other hand, suffer through winter so they can live again in April. If you are lucky enough to have a terrace in Manhattan, it becomes your living room right after Easter. The tulips bloom first and then the sidewalk cafes fill fast. In fact, with so many sidewalk cafes in New York, I love walking and listening – you don’t have to walk far to hear the rosé corks pop.”
Four Seasons Hotel New York has 23 guest rooms and suites with private terraces in total. Some of the terraces soar 700 feet (213 metres) above Manhattan, offering unimagined views of the city’s storied skyline. Chef John Johnson’s Menus in the Sky program pairs Four Seasons views with five course menus. While every menu can be customised, guests who are travelling this spring may opt for the following:
