One of life’s greatest pleasures is staying in with a movie and a meal from your favorite local restaurant. Though the epicurean kitchens at ARO are equipped for culinary wizardry, with top-of-the-line appliances and Caesarstone countertops, sometimes a long day of work calls for maximum convenience.
The dining scene near ARO’s no-fee rentals in Manhattan provides some of the city’s finest globe-trotting range of cuisines for every mood or occasion—from sushi to Mediterranean and French to piping-hot brick-oven pizza.
For date night at home, Brasserie Saint Marc has a menu of French bistro classics, perfect by candlelight with the sweeping city views as the evening’s backdrop. The escargot with tranches of bread to soak up the warm butter and cheese-covered French onion soup make for the perfect starters. An equally decadent main of lobster or white truffle mac and cheese, mussels mariniere, steak au poivre with thick pomme frites or paella can be paired with a bottle of wine from their excellent selection, available for delivery, or for that special vintage you’ve been saving at home.
The Blue Ribbon restaurants are known among diners and food critics for serving some of the city’s most celebrated sushi and brasserie fare. Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill is no exception and offers Blue Ribbon’s signature, exquisite sushi and sashimi, as well as brasserie dishes with a twist, like the Fried Chicken “Blue Ribbon Style” with wasabi and honey and the Prime New York Strip steak with miso pepper sauce. A selection of sake is also available to recreate the full sushi dining experience at home.
For a Mediterranean seafood feast, Limani features some of the freshest fish in Manhattan. While this Midtown restaurant is known for its dazzling display of fresh fish and raw bar offerings on ice, diners can still enjoy fresh oysters or Limani’s seafood specialties at home. From grilled sashimi-grade octopus and plump, delicate Maryland crab cakes to Mediterranean Ceviche, Dover sole from Holland, sea bass, red snapper, swordfish, lobster, and halibut, seafood lovers can rejoice with an embarrassment of options.
Of course, the quintessential dinner delivery option is a pie of pizza from your favorite pizzeria. Residents of ARO have Don Giovanni Ristorante as a neighborhood go-to for dinner. Authentic pasta dishes, like their must-try homemade gnocchi, and, of course, their showstopping brick oven pizzas offer the platonic ideal of comforting dinner at home. Just save room for their homemade tiramisu and mini cannolis.Residents of ARO’s luxury apartments in NYC have some of the city’s finest dining options conveniently at their disposal for a convenient and comforting night in.
