Acclaimed chef and restaurateur Tom Colicchio pulls inspiration from the rich history of the building and his own culinary journey to provide a menu of classics, old and new, reinvented with his signature, seasonal touch.
The a la carte and five-course tasting menu feature dishes such as Maine Lobster with chanterelle mushrooms and tarragon, presented in the style of Lobster Thermidor and desserts such as Tarte Tatin with sun gold tomato and peach. Set with rich, jewel-toned furnishings and antique accents, Temple Court stands as a one-of-a-kind setting for dining in lower Manhattan.
The Bar Room at Tom Colicchio’s Temple Court is located beneath The Beekman’s stunning, nine-story Victorian era atrium and offers a singular New York setting to enjoy a list of handcrafted cocktails alongside an all-day menu.
With plush lounge seating and a distinctly old New York feel, The Bar Room at Temple Court is a new entry in lower Manhattan’s canon of destination bars and restaurants.
This once-hidden cellar and century-old mechanical room has been transformed into an intimate lounge that echoes both the eclectic individuality of Tokyo’s secret bars and the classic American cocktail club. New York’s iconic late-night impresario, Serge Becker, known for establishments like The Box, La Esquina, and Miss Lily’s, lends his energizing and theatrical charisma to this atmospheric haven, where musicians and renowned DJs drop by to share their talents.
Whether you’re after a pre-meal aperitif, a light dinner and drinks, or a sneaky nightcap, precision bartenders are on hand to ensure the most pleasurable libations. Honkaku shōchū, craft Japanese beer, boutique sake, and a library of Japanese whiskey add to an array of cultish concoctions on offer. For those culinary minded and hungry folk, the menu offers classic and modern reinterpretations of Japanese Izakaya comfort food.
