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.

Seems hard to find a different choice around the Theater District, but this should be on your short list. Happened to be there for Restaurant Week and had an amazing 3 course, generously portioned lunch for $25. Inventive menu, but still something for everyone. Service was attentive and atmosphere lovely

Ordered from a la carte (not the lunch set menu). Food was excellent. Service is impeccable and burger was delicious. Fries thin and crispy and equally great. Steak was also perfect. Highly recommended!!!

Slightly formal American style. Food was very good and a great selection of good wines by the glass. I had a fish starter, Hawaiin origin, and it was sublime with an orange and coconut jus. My Aureole burger for main was cooked perfectly. Overall, really good American food and a great view

there is a good alternative to phoning ahead and going through the whole hostess nonsense on arrival: it is to sit at the bar and just enjoy the food. i was lucky and chose a good wine, the salad and bread were excellent, as was the trout, although served on a peculiar bed of edamame and onion soup! and great...

Took my dad here for a lux lunch for father's day, and it was a great eating occasion. We both enjoyed a well-made cocktail, followed by salmon tartare, the burger, which was cooked to perfection, and the haute cuisine nicoise salad, which was delicious Definitely proof positive that old school outstanding service is alive and well.

It literally took half an hour to get a drink order and we had to flag down our waitress and ask her to take our order. by 6:45, we still didn't... More

Me and my wife went to Aureole to celebrate our anniversary and we were not disappointed. The service was impressive, the waiter was very knowledable of the menu and provided outstanding service. The food was great and the chef even made us special cake for our anniversary. Next time I'm in NYC I will go back to Aureole.

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.
