Not Accepted


At the posh Mandarin Oriental's equally upscale lounge, mahogany walls warm up the ovate area, with two large panels of mod art adding the only color. But everyone is looking at the view — Central Park greenery during the day and flashing taillights whirling around Columbus Circle at night. Those who do steal glances at the menu will notice that it blends Asian and American bar bites, from dim sum dumplings to chicken lollipops to Wagyu beef sliders. Unevenness in the food explains why the savviest travelers just pop in for a quick cocktail, or for teatime. Smarter still, opt to dine in the Mandarin’s “real” restaurant, Asiate, instead.

High Tea

For $48, the tea service, daily from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., offers freshly prepared scones, finger sandwiches, and pastries.

Reservations are accepted only for hotel guests.
