On New Year's Eve last year, I had the opportunity to try the Andaz Tavern on the 51st floor. The hotel had prepared a set menu and entertainment through the evening until the countdown. All in all, I found everything to be extremely well done and at the end of the evening the manager came personally to wish a happy new year. The food was superb and the paired wines, although middle of the road level, were very appropriate and tasty. Very much appreciated.
This is an extremely well run hotel by the look of it.
Sky high cocktail bar
Starter of snow crab and apple effiloche? (that's a new one), torched scallop, grapefruit, crab aspic
Champagne soup and caviar
Duck confit ravioli with gruyère cheese crème and Périgord truffle (fantastic - and my dining partner doesn't like truffles so I had a double serving!!!)
Some cute lambies cames to visit during the meal
Japanese F1 beef sirloin with parmesan and saffron crust, celeriac and green peppercorn sauce (absolutely delish was this one)
Pretty good musicians were laid on between courses
Chocolate ball with pastry crème, champagne jelly, tonka bean ice cream
