The Breslin

Arthur Bovino, the lead writer for “Always Hungry“, a New York City restaurant review, has aptly described The Breslin Restaurant at The Ace Hotel as a ‘cool, cleaned up version of the Edmont Hotel in ‘The Catcher in the Rye’. The inherently beautiful 19th Century features have been preserved: wooden floors, rough and reclaimed; leather booths and peeling, embellished ceilings… and then amplified with 21st Century lacquered army green walls and black accents. Add to that Chef April Bloomfield, undoubtedly the queen of New York City’s gastro pub-grub scene. A helping of pork scratchings and triple cooked fries, if you please!
