Bar Carts and Bites at NOIR
June 28, 2012 | Homepage
Recently opened NOIR is the perfect Midtown spot for special occasions, power lunches, and after-work cocktails. Patrons can enjoy delicious bites from Michelin-starred chef Jean-Yves Schillinger (who has his own restaurant, JYS, in the Alsace region of France), like creamy Maine lobster gratin with spinach and house made gnocchi; slow cooked beef ribs with spicy chorizo marmalade; and roasted duck breast with spiced cranberry sauce, creamed spinach, and oregano-crusted tomatoes.
In the upstairs lounge, guests can take advantage of handcrafted and seasonal cocktails created by celebrated mixologist and beverage director, Adam Delgiudice (best known for his stint at Miami’s shuttered Florida Room bar), or choose from the premium spirit cart to customize their own cocktail. In addition to the specialty bar cart, NOIR also features a glass encased tasting room where guests can try a special tasting menu with beer, wine, or cocktail pairings.151 East 50th St., 212-753-1144
