The 367-room Public Hotel is the second collaboration between hotelier Ian Schrager and Jean-Georges Vongerichten. All of its culinary operations are run by the chef, including Public Kitchen. At the 150-seat restaurant, Vongerichten and his executive chef Thomas McKenna take a smorgasbord approach to the menu. Breakfast is in the vein of Continental hotel food, but dinner features a mishmash of cuisines meant to, Vongerichten says, represent New York’s tapestry of intermingling cultures with a touch of the chef’s signature style. (See the fried calamari, served not with marinara but Cantonese ginger-scallion sauce, which Chinatown’s Great New York Noodle Town made part of the city’s canon.) Pastas and wood-fired pizzas are served alongside smoked salmon and potato latkes, corn and basil pot stickers, a cheeseburger with frizzled onions, and, for dessert, the turn-of-the-century Italian favorite tartufo. This approach carries over into Louis’s menu, where there are egg sandwiches for breakfast, a DIY salad bar, abcV’s green-chickpea hummus, and even a fried-chicken plate.
