New York

Another notch in David Burke’s culinary belt lives on the first floor of the Garment District’s Archer Hotel, where the chef delivers his trademark interpretations of familiar foods. You can expect small plates like candied slabs of bacon hung on a mini-clothesline (a crossover from his kitchen at the James Hotel), cauliflower steak as hearty and satisfying as any hunk of beef, and flatbread topped with pastrami-smoked-salmon that delivers the flavor profile of an everything bagel. The space, with pops of bright yellow in tufted sofas, a rainbow of modern art, and aggressively contemporary light fixtures, proves as playful as the menu.
