The lowdown

The Financial District’s Beekman hotel became an instant dining hot spot as the home to Tom Colicchio’s American-leaning restaurant and Keith McNally’s Augustine. The major draw is the stunning, historic space — an 1883 landmarked office building that has many of its original architectural details. The original name, Fowler & Wells, was changed after Colicchio learned the 19th-century namesake doctors were advocates of racist phrenology. Temple Court, instead, pulls only the best from the past; chef Bryan Hunt’s menu still feels retro without being kitschy. Think oysters Rockefeller, a warm lobster salad, and rabbit schnitzel.
