Raise The Roof: Hôtel Americano’s Poolside Grill Is OpenHotel Americano's Grill at La Piscine Is Open To The Public
If you haven’t yet penciled in a visit to Grupo Habita’s Hôtel Americano—the boutique hotel opened up in Chelsea last September—here’s some extra incentive: Sweeping city views, light Mediterranean bites, and a four-foot deep swimming pool surrounded by butterfly chairs and white daybeds. And thankfully, this season there’s no need to book a room. That’s right: The Grill at La Piscine (the spot’s swanky rooftop pool) is now open to the public.
Simply hop into the glass enclosed elevator attached to the building’s exterior and shoot 10 floors up. Stop by for drinks—we love the Hibiscus Margarita ($16) with infused tequila, agave, and lime—or grab a table and nosh on hummus with grilled pita ($7), fish from the grill (including lobster for $38), or a classic burger dressed up with caramelized onion confit ($15).
Hours for lunch are from noon to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday, or you can stop by for dinner and cocktails Thursdays through Mondays starting at 6 pm. Get there while it’s hot; come winter the high top will transform back into a guest-only, glass enclosed winter oasis (and yes, the pool becomes a hot tub).–CHASE ROSENThe Grill at La Piscine| 518 West 27th Street| 212-525-0000
