The famed downtown oasis, the Gansevoort Rooftop, boasts unobstructed 360 views of the Manhattan skyline with views of Hudson River and the recently unveiled “Little Island” from Barry Diller and Diane von Furstenberg. Guests can relax aside the heated pool and enjoy innovative, refreshing cocktails and elevated bites.
Think: Pekin Duck Drumettes, a riff off your standard chicken wings. Located through discrete doors at the back of the rooftop’s main dining space, is Saishin at the Gansevoort Rooftop, the hotel’s new omakase experience. Led by a Michelin Star-trained sushi chef and 20+ year veteran Chef Frankie-Yong Doon, standout dishes from the menu include: Hikarimono Saba with green apple and goma and the corn leaf smoked Tasmanian Ocean Trout topped with smoky onion, which combine simple components in unexpected ways.
