Our Story

The Parlour Room Bar and Grill is a classic American restaurant nestled in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. We take pleasure in hosting our guests in a truly warm, beautiful, and thoughtfully appointed dining room and bar, where no request is too big or small.  

Our new menu, created by our Executive Chef Luther Dowdy, features craveable, delicious dishes. Dowdy, an alumnus of the kitchens of acclaimed chefs Thomas Keller, Jean Georges and Greg Baxtrom, is focused on taking classic dishes and adding fun, contemporary twists. The Island Creek Oysters are dressed in a champagne mignonette that Dowdy elevates with fresh horseradish, pink peppercorns and trout roe. The Faroe Island salmon is pistachio-crusted and served with spinach, braised fennel and grapefruit beurre blanc. The 46 oz. Prime Tomahawk Ribeye is slowly roasted and char-grilled, making it as luxurious as a slice of prime rib. And our iconic Parlour Burger is a blend of brisket and short rib, cheddar, shaved onions, pickles, and our special P-36 Sauce.  

Another point of pride is our collection of 450 of the world’s finest whiskeys, a treasure trove for whiskey enthusiasts, with selections from Ireland, Scotland, Japan, the United States, Canada and beyond. In addition to our extensive whiskey collection, our full beverage program is an homage to literary legends like Edgar Allan Poe, J.D. Salinger, Oscar Wilde, F. Scott Fitzgerald to name a few. At the helm of the beverage program is David Orellana, a leader in the beverage department and sommelier with over two decades of experience working for Scarpetta, Quality Italian, Maialino at the Gramercy Park Hotel, and Zuma. At The Parlour Room, each cocktail is influenced by these literary titans and directly tied into their history and work. Our signature American Whiskey cocktail "The Raven" is a spirit forward theatrical drink inspired by Allan Poe's masterpiece and an homage to the poet, who was a lover of whiskey.  

As guests step into our establishment, they will be transported to a world of stately and timeless decor, evoking the elegant charm of a bygone era. Join us at the Parlour Room Bar and Grill for an unforgettable dining experience that will surely make you reminisce about the glorious elegance of times long past.
