As the more casual eatery of the Warwick hotel’s two restaurants, the other being Mural on 54, Randolph’s – named after William Randolph Hearst, the Warwick’s original owner – exudes the comfort of a forties lounge, with wood-paneled walls, soft lighting, comfy leather sofas, and marble-topped tables. The two flat panel TVs over the bar seem out of place, but provide adequate soundless distraction for the hotel guests who populate the restaurant. The menu targets a broad range of tastes—American staples mixed with ethnic choices—but the execution is indistinguishable from that encountered in nearby lunch cafeteria chains like Café Europa or Market Bistro. The cheeseburger is a flavorless 10 oz. patty on a toasted sesame bun; tuna Nicoise fares no better, with an austere arrangement of dry, grilled Vantresca tuna, ice-cold boiled potatoes, soggy string beans, and watery unpitted olives. Nevertheless, the huge portions will surely keep guests well fueled between museum trips and Fifth Ave. department stores.
