Situated in the lobby of the Alex Hotel in Midtown, Riingo is a fusion of Asian and American cuisine and decor. Red walls, like Japanese lacquer, give accent to the white floors and ebony wood tables and chairs. Locally admired co-owner and chef, Marcus Samuelsson, has moved into perfecting meat dishes, such as the beer-braised beef short ribs with apple-miso puree and palm hearts. Try the foie gras nori roll, served wtih grilled melon and cured mackerel. The signature entree is braised pork belly sliced into small squares and topped with honey and whole garlic bulbs. 

Insider Tip:

Riingo serves Japanese-inspired cocktails such as the Big Riingo: apple sake, apple vodka, and pomegranate. A cute play on words, since riingo means apple in Japanese.
