Aureole, New York is the flagship showcase for Charlie Palmer's unabashed, energetic signature Progressive American cuisine. Now under the culinary leadership of Executive Chef Marcus Gleadow-Ware, who learned the importance of the classics at London's world-renowned Savoy Hotel, the kitchen turns out elegant, simple dishes with sharply focused flavors like Wagyu Beef Carpaccio with crispy shiitake, scallions, taro root, ponzu and lavash cracker. Aureole is located within the spectacular Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park, the most environmentally advanced skyscraper in the world. Offering a range of dining options, the Liberty Room is smart and casual with walnut-topped tables and a back-lit, etched glass front bar with polished natural zinc top surface, the intimate Dining Room is designed in both lighting and texture to give off a golden glow, and The Halo Private Dining Room is wrapped with fabric panel and silver leaf walls, dotted with sculptural back-lit flame sconces. Now in its 25th year, Aureole is contemporary urban elegance.

We were at Aureole on the Sunday evening of Memorial Day weekend. At 6:00 pm, there was only one waiter working the Liberty Bar Room, at least, that is what the waiter told us. I felt bad for him that a Charlie Palmer establishment does not have it together enough to be staffed for a holiday weekend. It took a... More

My wife and I went pre-theatre with reservations at 5PM- perfect timing to walk 50 yards to the Sondheim Theatre, for a 7 PM show. The place got busy in a hurry with a crowded bar of business people meeting after work as well as a full restaurant. We ate in the Liberty Room that adjoins the bar (the other... More

Aureole on 42nd street is certainly a gem amidst the hustle of Times Square. My husband and I recently had dinner in the Liberty Room prior to a show (an anniversary treat!) The food was imaginative yet very accessible and beautifully presented; the service impeccable and timely; The venue itself is stylish and welcoming. I highly recommend it!

This restaurant deserves it's Michelin Star. The food and service is top level, and I can definitely recommend it. I took my Mum for Mother's Day and we both fully enjoyed it. This will not be my last visit to Aureole.

On a recent trip to New York, we felt it only appropriate to treat our mother to a Mothers Day Brunch and the menu here looked great and did not disappoint. The food looked so amazing I didn't want to ruin it! The service was also pretty good... The only downfall was the atmosphere was a little off. Would definitely... More

Friendly atmosphere, tables not too close together. Waitstaff helpful. Prix fix dinner $96. Lots of choices. Beautifully presented and delicious food. With drinks, about $125pp + tip. Fine dining in NYC. But, I'm writing this review 6 days later, and I can't remember much about this restaurant. That's bad!

While walking around the theater district we came across this restaurant and decided to give it a try. The interior is a little bit old style formal, so fitting for the business men having lunch there. We were a little bit frowned upon in our "touristy attire". Managed to get the last table, the place was packed. We only wanted... More

We chose this based on TripAdvisor ratings and we're not disappointed! We booked through Open Table, and the restaurant called to confirm the reservation and to ask if we were going to a show and what time the show was. The waiter asked again when we were seated. Aureole offers a very reasonable (for NY) fixed price three course pre-theater... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
