For breakfast at Mandarin Oriental, New York, venture to Asiate, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel’s premier full-service restaurant, or to the Lobby Lounge, a more casual alternative. The latter opens at 9 a.m. every day of the week, and is ideal if you’re looking for a quick bite to eat. Asiate, on the other hand, is an experience you’ll want to savor. At Asiate, go the traditional route with dishes such as eggs Benedict, or try some Eastern recipes, like the surprisingly light Japanese Breakfast, which includes grilled salmon, kombu salad, sauteed spinach, mushrooms, a poached egg, pickled vegetables, steamed rice and miso soup. Asiate opens at 7 a.m., which makes it a good spot to have breakfast before heading out to your business meeting or a full day of sightseeing.
