Villard Restaurant and Villard Gold Room Bar
 
An iconic setting for breakfast, weekend brunch, and cocktails, Villard Restaurant at the Lotte Palace Hotel is New York City’s definitive “Breakfast Room.”  The hotel’s signature restaurant offers a full a la carte breakfast and weekend brunch in the storybook setting of the historic Villard Mansion. Guests can savor the New American cuisine of Chef Oscar Granados, served graciously against the backdrop of one of the city’s most glamorous settings, and enjoy a selection of handcrafted cocktails and wines by the glass every afternoon in the Villard Gold Room Bar.  Chef Granados as Chef de Cuisine draws inspiration from fresh, local ingredients to create dishes reminiscent of classic French cafés and European bistros. Brunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Pomme Palais, a casual French Market-style café, mirrors the vibrant atmosphere of a pastry shop that feels as if it’s been plucked from a Paris street corner.

This is every New Yorker’s favorite for fruit tarts, eclairs, classic Nicoise salad, and other sweet and savory treats.
