Clement Restaurant

Modern cuisine in Midtown's relaxed spot
VERIFIED LUXURY
The Peninsula New York’s newest dining outlet, Clement Restaurant, carries on the Hong Kong-based hotel group’s tradition of restaurants named after hotel executives. This one honors the CEO of Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels (the parent company of The Peninsula), Clement King Man Kwok. Located on the second floor of the hotel, Clement boasts stellar views of Fifth Avenue, thanks to its arched windows.

The design of the New York restaurant is the first thing you’ll notice. Design firm Yabu Pushelberg broke up Clement into three distinct spaces. Each has its own vibe and appeal, but all come together to feel rather residential.

But it’s what’s on top of the table that’s really important at Clement. Chef Brandon Kida (formerly of Asiate at Mandarin Oriental, New York) whips up delightfully modern cuisine with a bit of an Asian flair for a truly memorable meal.

Our Inspector's Highlights
• Tables don white linens, while the chairs and banquettes are gray — leaving the restaurant with a clean and contemporary look.

• The knowledgeable staff is able to make recommendations on the appetizers, entrées and desserts, and the New York City restaurant’s sommelier can assist with the vino.

• Chef Brandon Kida takes pride in utilizing seasonal ingredients, gathering items from local farmers as well as making trips down to the Union Square Greenmarket.

• Located on the second floor of The Peninsula New York, Clement Restaurant offers stellar views of one of the city’s most iconic streets: Fifth Avenue. The dining room boats several arched windows, allowing for prime people-watching in between courses.
Things to Know
• Breakfast is served daily from 6:30 until 10:30 a.m. with lunch available starting at noon until 2:30 p.m. Indulge in a sumptuous weekend brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

• Clement Restaurant serves dinner Tuesday through Saturday from 5:30 to 10 p.m. The New York City eatery is closed for dinner on Sunday and Monday.

• The official dress code at Clement Restaurant is smart casual, but that doesn’t mean jeans and a T-shirt. After all, Clement is the signature eatery of The Peninsula New York, so it’s the type of place where you’ll want dress to impress.
The Food
• The menu changes weekly, but expect dishes like Maine lobster and poached eggs, and quinoa porridge with kale and ginger for breakfast.

• At lunch, dishes might include a burger with spicy mustard and pommes frites, and black sea bass with roasted duck broth and maitake mushrooms.

• Dinner might offer fluke with romaine and lemon-chamomile emulsion or lamb with miso, grilled ramps and a rhubarb syrup.

• For a fun dining experience, try the Sunday Market Brunch, where you can indulge in a three-course meal (a market tasting plate with pastries, your choice of main course and a trio of desserts) while a DJ spins in the dining room.
The Bar
• For other drinks, head to the other side of Clement for the bar, which pumps lively music that seeps into the dining room.

• Sit in a butterscotch-colored leather banquette and sip a Sassafras Cobbler (Dickel Rye, simple syrup, lemon juice, sassafras leaves, pickled blueberries and pickled blueberry juice) before indulging in chef Kida’s contemporary cuisine.

• And if you’re looking for a glass of wine, be sure to ask for the sommelier, who can advise you on everything vino-related.
