If this restaurant had an official slogan, it might be “come for the view, stay for the food.” Located on the 35th floor of the Time Warner Center in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Asiate presents a stunning view of Columbus Circle and Central Park through floor-to-ceiling windows. It’s almost enough to distract from the food itself were it not for the superb skill of chef Brandon Kida, especially his butter-poached lobster with white polenta, Hon Shimeji mushrooms in kaffir emulsion, and buckwheat-egg soba noodles with Osetra caviar and wasabi cream. For such fine dining, dress accordingly.
There’s more to see than just the view. Designer Tony Chi’s 1300-bottle wall of wine, or perhaps the elaborate, glittering tree sculpture hanging from the ceiling, also command attention.
