BEST FOR GOURMET DIN­ING PUB­LIC

Harper's Bazaar (UK) - - ESCAPE -

The vet­eran hote­lier Ian Schrager has tri­umphed again with his lat­est vi­sion, the Pub­lic ho­tel – a stream­lined stay where you check your­self in via your phone, and room ser­vice is re­placed by Louis, a café serv­ing de­li­cious take-away in pa­per bags. There are two other ex­cel­lent res­tau­rants – Diego, whose dishes have a Latin flavour, and Jean-Ge­orges Von­gerichten’s Pub­lic Kitchen – plus a quar­tet of bars. Out­side, the colour­ful Christ­mas win­dows on Fifth Av­enue and Cen­tral Park’s iceskat­ing rink are within easy reach, and you can shop for hand-blown-glass tree dec­o­ra­tions at the John De­rian store, just a five-minute walk away. rachel louise brown

Pub­lic, from about £155 a room a night (www.pub­li­cho­tels.com).
