You don’t have to leave the comfort of your room at The St. Regis New York to enjoy some of the tastiest food around; the 24-hour room service menu offers an array of options for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and everything in between that can turn your bedroom into a fine-dining restaurant.
For breakfast, you can order morning stalwarts like cereal, oatmeal, fruit, omelets, eggs Benedict and steak and eggs. Or, to get that blood sugar up, opt for the corn-flake-crusted brioche French toast with caramelized bananas and strawberry butter or the buttermilk pancakes with chocolate chips. There are also five special combination breakfasts; we love the Fifth Avenue, which comes with freshly pressed Valencia orange juice, assorted pastries, scrambled eggs with American Sturgeon caviar, breakfast potatoes, toasted brioche, fresh berries and coffee or tea.
For lunch, nosh on an appetizer like fresh oysters or crab cakes, then move on to a delicious soup, salad, pizza or sandwich, such as the famous King Cole burger with house-cured pickles and french fries.
For dinner, traditional entrées include filet mignon, roasted chicken, New York strip steak and salmon, as well as international dishes such as lamb kebab and a Middle Eastern platter with hummus, falafel, olives and pita bread.
The “Mini Butler Bites,” also known as the kids’ menu at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel, includes hot dogs, chicken fingers, cheeseburgers, triple-decker PB&Js, grilled cheese, mac and cheese, spaghetti and mini pizzas. Kids will also enjoy the parlor-style banana split with hot fudge and cherries or the freeze burger, a giant ice cream sandwich made with chocolate chip cookies.
Adults can choose among several more sophisticated desserts, including tiramisu, New York-style cheesecake with red fruit coulis and crème brûlée with fresh raspberries.
Domestic and imported beer, vodka, gin, tequila and rum as well as single-malt Scotch, bourbon, whiskey and cognac give you in-room alternatives to the bar. A handful of champagne and white and red wines are available by the glass, and an extensive by-the-bottle list offers vintage and prestige choices. An additional reserve wine list is available upon request. And for the authentic St. Regis experience, order a Red Snapper, the New York hotel’s version of a Bloody Mary, which it claims to have invented. All in all, your room service options are plentiful.
