Originally designed as a residential-style hotel with wind-swept terraces to entertain, the Neo-Romanesque edifice, a New York City Landmark, exudes the ambiance of a private club.
The Benjamin was fully redesigned by Interior Designer Lauren Rottet and restyled in partnership with The Benjamin Sleep Expert, Dr. Rebecca Robbins, to bolster the residential appeal and create an ambiance of relaxed sophistication.
Food Network Chef Geoffrey Zakarian brings his style, passion and culinary expertise to The Benjamin with The National Bar & Dining Rooms, hailed as one of The New York Times’ 50 Favorite Restaurants. The menu offers Zakarian’s signature Modern American cuisine – a style of cooking that has earned him critical acclaim. The cuisine is fresh and accessible, concentrating on seasonal ingredients prepared with classic techniques.
