Travelle

And so, hotel dining. Not the trending newbies accessible through a street-level revolving door, but bona fide Hotel Restaurants that require an elevator to whisk you upstairs, where a gracious host awaits. Such is Travelle, a stunning contemporary room with floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook . . . a parking garage.

Floor-to-ceiling windows also wrap around the kitchen, allowing you to watch Tim Graham (Tru) ply his trade. Even so, if you order a pita balloon with muhammara sauce (a spicy mix of peppers, walnuts, and pomegranate molasses), the crispy hollow sphere set before you will look like a magic trick. And it will disappear.

Roasted arctic char tastes minutes from its birthplace, ultrarich lobster risotto oozes with Parmesan, and the juicy suckling pig under a crunchy skin raises the ante for the pork-loving world. And then there’s the Nutella baklava. Who needs a room with a view?

Perfect for: Someone looking for a quiet rendezvous
