This week’s fashionplate is a brunch time edition at The Clocktower at Ian Schrager’s Edition Hotel. The restaurant is located right by the Credit Suisse building on Madison and 24th. The restaurant is located on the second floor of this luxe and modern hotel, take the winding egg-like staircase or the elevator to arrive to multi-room British inspired mens clubhouse. I met my dining companion at the bar and he was already drinking a martini, hey it was 2. We then were seated in one of two dining rooms in a sumptuous chartreuse booth and I decided on trying the American Cereal Killer cocktail that comes in the cutest little milk carton glass. It’s a delicious bourbon based cocktail that tastes like a decadent dessert. I ordered the burger medium rare with chips and my companion had the tuna tataki as he was staying on the liquid diet. The burger was perfectly cooked and juicy with a great proportion of bacon and cheddar. The chips were amazing, I’m going to come back for happy hour and have those with cocktails. His tuna was a nice and light starter.
We ordered more cocktails and spent the rainy afternoon gossiping, drinking and eating and enjoying the cozy setting. As this was a summer weekend, it wasn’t packed but the patrons were a mix of hotel guests and mostly late twenties and thirtysomething couples looking for cover on the rainy day.
