Mandarin Oriental, New York unveils new dining experience, MO Lounge, and announces the appointment of Chef Toni Robertson as F&B Director and Executive Chef. Located on the hotel’s 35th floor and adjacent to the Sky Lobby, MO Lounge offers an all-day menu of elevated comfort food and well-crafted cocktails while providing spectacular views of Central Park and the Manhattan skyline.
Designed by Chef Toni Robertson, the menu at MO Lounge features the finest locally sourced and sustainable ingredients in popular, approachable dishes, while, in a nod to Mandarin Oriental’s storied heritage, incorporating Asian flavors. Standouts include the Mushroom Char-Siu featuring oyster mushrooms with Chinese BBQ sauce, pickled radish, and whipped almond cream; Wonton Noodle Soup with chicken and shrimp wonton, char siu pork, poached eggs, shitake mushroom, and bok choy; and NY Steak Bites with black garlic truffle butter.
House cocktails include the M.O. Fashioned, MO Lounge’s take on an Old Fashioned with lapsang souchong infused knob creek, angostura, and orange zest; the Malabi, made with vodka, amaretto, skim milk, and pistachios; and the Lunar Eclipse, crafted with a turmeric-infused stoli, carrot juice, lemon juice, and honey. Guests can also choose from a premium list of champagne and wines by the glass, local craft beers, craft soft and homemade iced drinks, as well as freshly-squeezed juices and smoothies for breakfast.
MO Lounge is open daily from 7:00am to 11:00pm, Sunday through Wednesday, and 7:00am to 12:00am, Thursday through Saturday.
