The Symphony Hotel Restaurant

The lovely Robin and I enjoyed a double date last Saturday evening with our friends, Thom and Cindy. We began with dinner at the Symphony Hotel Restaurant, across W. 14th Street from Music Hall.
The Symphony Hotel offers a unique experience (and yes, it is also a hotel). We pre-ordered (via email) our entrees for the five-course dinner. The menu changes monthly, and the only choices to be made are for the entree and dessert. We all had the roasted tomato soup, salad, and black rasperry sorbet. I enjoyed the prime rib (I try never to miss a chance for prime rib) and Robin loved her Amish chicken. For dessert, we both had the seasonal berries...which could have used a little sugar or whipped cream.
The restaurant makes the most of their floor space. There's no dance floor, for sure. The building, at 210 W. 14th Street, was originally an old mansion that was later converted into a hotel. We didn't explore the rooms upstairs, but according to their website (, they do accept reservations.

It wasn't a cheap experience by any means, but the location for an evening at the symphony couldn't have been more convenient.
