For prime people-watching, and a space right next to your date, go for the cushier seats that line the room.
Earthy reds, Mediterranean blues and olive greens, echoing the colours of the Middle Eastern landscape.
Lamalo draws inspiration from the warm hospitality and sun-kissed cuisine of the Middle East, uniting Israeli flavors with New York's culinary culture. In typical style, the dishes here are designed to be shared – a spread of dips and appetizers will cover your table within minutes of you taking your seats, accompanied by baked-to-order Jerusalem Laffa. As for the mains, expect succulent grilled chicken, octopus with lemon butter and Shabtai-style whole fish, paired with classic sides like Israeli couscous, vermicelli rice and freekeh. For breakfast, there’s a buffet spread of freshly-baked breads, rugelach and other pastries, frittata, shakshuka, tahini, olives, cherry tomatoes, homemade jam and granola, yoghurt and sticky sweet date syrup.
There are two: Barlo and the Arlo Rooftop. Barlo’s design pays homage to Sixties style, and has a secrete hygge-toned chill-out area draped in fairy lights and sheepskins. Try the rosemary-infused gin Forest Hills cocktail while you’re there. On the 31st floor, Arlo Rooftop overlooks the surrounding skyline, making it the definitive spot for sundowners. Sip on cocktails inspired by summer anthems as you watch the sun slide behind skyscrapers.
Breakfast is served from 7am to 11am, dinner from 5pm to 11pm.
None, but you won’t go hungry. Raid your in-room minibar or head down to 24-hour Bodega, which dishes out coffee and a daily selection of pizza and sandwiches.
