Peacock Alley’s a la carte lunch menu is “Where New York Does Business." By the early evening, the iconic Cole Porter piano begins to play, as guests sip inspired and artful cocktails with rare and house-infused spirits. The sumptuous Sunday brunch was voted one of the 10 Best Brunches in New York City by Open Table in 2011 & 2012. The restaurant, bar and discreet lounge are located in the heart of the bustling main lobby of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. The private dining rooms are ideal for small corporate lunches, private dinner events and celebrations, both small and large.

I was in New York on business for a few days and had the opportunity to stay at the Waldorf. Peacock Alley is a great spot to grab a drink and enjoy a meal. On friday and saturday they offer live music, which is a plus if you are looking to relax with your spouse/significant other.

Not trying to splash money on expensive foods, so we decided to check out the place on our last night at the Astoria. They said they were full. But we insisted that we weren't there to dine, they smuggled us in. The service was really professional yet not intimidating, in fact they were really nice. We ordered coffee and desserts... More

While I had this experience years ago, I took my wife recently and we had a great time. Live music (piano and vocalist) while we enjoyed a Sunday brunch. The ambiance, service and fresh food are what we enjoyed. We planned our day around this meal and we would go again. Fresh food in a historic hotel.

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.
