Just when you thought it couldn’t get more festive this holiday season, Fouquet’s, of Champs-Elysées Paris fame, arrives in NYC. It’s not uptown though, but instead paves its way as a luxury hotel in Tribeca. This doesn’t mean it’s not bringing the elegance of the Parisian outpost, or the macaroons for that matter. This is the first look at Fouquet’s and why it’s worth a stop this holiday.
Paris Arrives in NYC
There’s now officially a true luxury hotel in Tribeca. Fouquet’s of Paris arrived in Manhattan this fall as part of the expansion of the Barrière hotel group. Fouquet’s NYC sister hotels include Le Barrière in Cannes, Fouquet’s in Paris, and Le Barrière in St. Barths, to name a few.
Each hotel in the Barrière portfolio is unique, and Fouquet’s NYC is not afraid to show its feminine side. There’s no doubt that you’re in a French-inspired luxury hotel in Tribeca when you arrive at Fouquet’s. The hotel rooms and common areas are decorated in a palette of pink, lavender and soft green pastels. And Fouquet’s is not afraid to break out the marble, gold mirrors, and velvet, either.
Fouquet’s has 97 room that are spread across eight floors. So you feel like the hotel is intimate but full-amenity at the same time. In addition to two kinds of regular rooms, there are four types of suites that have an apartment-like feel. Therefore, if you’re staying awhile, Fouquet’s is a luxury hotel in Tribeca that is optimal for longer-term stays. It’s of course also nice for short weekends. At around $850 or so for regular rooms, Fouquet’s won’t break the bank, relatively speaking.
Wine and Dine
The signature restaurant is Brasserie Fouquet’s. This is the same kind of outpost as the Parisian original that opened in 1899. After all, you know what they say; if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.
Same is true with the executive chef. Michelin-starred Pierre Gagniere creates the menu, which sticks to classic French dishes. You’ll find everything from caviar to oysters to escargots and sole meunière to get your French-food fix. After-dinner drinks are at the Titsou Bar, an intimate space that’s a throwback to the 1920s and ’30s. This holiday season, it’s dressed to the nines, so it’s a nice place to drop in for some holiday spirit.
The Diane Barrière spa at Fouquet’s takes up the two floors of the basement level. There’s an indoor pool, sauna, steam room, and five treatment rooms. The spa features Biologique Recherche facials and body treatments; all go beyond surface-level. You can also book a massage, manicure, and pedicures, plus personal training in the gym.
