Book in dinner at The Clocktower

Located in the New York Edition Hotel and helmed by Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton, The Clocktower brings contemporary cuisine with a British twist to Madison Avenue. With a menu that features everything from North African spiced Colorado lamb to 40-day dry-aged beef alongside expertly handcrafted cocktails, this is the only place to go Stateside (so far, anyway) to experience the supreme talents of Atherton. Occupying the second floor of the former Metropolitan Life Tower, the restaurant’s interiors are reminiscent of a members’ club: three separate dining rooms fitted with French baroque frames featuring various artworks, large chandeliers, oak flooring and velvet chairs all housed under a restored Venetian plaster ceiling. It’s glamorous, but subtly so – evoking a historic Manhattan charm that’s just begging to be explored.

Wine And Dine At The West Village’s New Spot

The epicentre of all things food-related in New York, this month the West Village throws open its arms to the South Of France in the form of the aptly titled St Tropez: a new spot dreamt up by four French friends that celebrates the joie de vivre of their home cuisine. Menu highlights include the Boulettes Provencales (beef meatballs with ratatouille), a surprisingly moreish butternut squash soup and the Tropezienne tart – made famous by Brigitte Bardot. Unlike a lot of eateries where the emphasis on the food is met with a disappointing drinks offering, St Tropez’s wine list – all French, by the way – includes an impressive 45 selections starting at just $9. Curated by Yohann Pecheux, great effort has gone in to ensuring the restaurant serves as much purpose as a post-work drinks den as it does a date-night dining establishment. The South Of France’s inspiration continues across the décor, which marries a Provencal farmhouse setup with a welcome neighbourhood feel.

Go see Justin Timberlake at Madison Square Garden

Following his performance at the Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis, Justin Timberlake brings his Man Of The Woods tour to the Garden for two nights this month – his first time playing New York since 2014. Supporting his most recent album, also titled Man Of The Woods, the show will bring to life the latest collection of songs touching on his journey to becoming a father as well as the vast catalogue of classics. One of the most exciting and confident performers of his generation, Timberlake’s stage presence is undeniable and if previous tours have been anything to go by, Man Of The Woods will deliver an all-encompassing, two-hour spectacle of his talents.

Visit The Upper East Side’s New Sushi Den

Opening this month on the Upper East Side, Sushi Noz will serve daily omakase and sushi in a setting inspired by Sukiya-style architecture built in Kyoto and delivered to New York: think rustic, harmonious simplicity. Headed by chef Nozomu Abe, the plates combine tradition with seasonality prepared in the edomae style with the focus solely on the fish and rice. At the centre of the dining room is a 200-year-old hinoki wood sushi bar while there is a six-seater private dining area for those who fancy an intimate experience. In an age when every restaurant strives to achieve the label of “authentic”, Sushi Noz is, genuinely, the real deal. Everything – from the fish to the floor tiles – is sourced from Japan.

Witness The St Patrick’s Day Parade

The annual festival of Ireland’s most celebrated patron saint, 17th March heralds the arrival of everything green to the city as well as the New York St Patrick’s Day parade. Starting at 11am at 44th Street, the parade will march up Fifth Avenue before concluding at the American Irish Historical Society at East 80th Street. The first parade took place in 1762 and comprised a group of homesick Irish ex-patriots and Irish military who gathered to speak Gaeilge and sang Irish songs meaningful to the Irish immigrant experience at the time, but today it is a universally celebrated phenomenon commemorating the global impact of Ireland and its people. Last year, 13 million pints of Guinness were consumed. Sláinte.


Stay At The Iroquois

Located just two blocks from Times Square and Grand Central, The Iroquois in the heart of Midtown is one of those rare hotels that emphasises old-school character alongside the standard sophistication expected of boutique accommodation.  Once a home to James Dean in the Fifties (there’s now a suite named after him), it somehow manages to evoke a peaceful atmosphere despite its central Manhattan location, from the intimate décor of the lobby to the plush and spacious guest rooms adorned with timeless, old-fashioned furniture in tones of reds, browns and golds. On top of that, The Iroquois prides itself on the attentiveness and commitment of its staff who strive to ensure each guest feels wholly welcome throughout the duration of their stay. For an extra touch of relaxation, opt for one of the suites that are equipped with a Jacuzzi. You can thank us after.
