The Financial District’s Beekman hotel became an instant dining hot spot as the home to Tom Colicchio’s American-leaning restaurant Fowler & Wells and Keith McNally's Augustine. The major draw for these restaurateurs is the stunning, historic space — an 1883 landmarked office building that has many of its original architectural details. In turn, Colicchio and executive chef Bryan Hunt’s menu feels retro without being kitschy: oysters Rockefeller, a warm lobster salad, rabbit schnitzel. “We’re definitely giving ourselves a little leeway in terms of interpreting these dishes,” Colicchio says. “They’re not spot-on. It’s just the idea of using dishes like duck à l’orange and beef Wellington as starting points.” The structure of the à la carte menu is more traditional, too: vegetable, sauce, meat; appetizer, entrée, dessert. “I tell my chefs, ‘I don’t want to see microgreens. I don’t want to see swooshes of purée!’ But, you know, we’re not doing tomato roses either.”
