The Restaurant offers re-invented PUMP ROOM classics and simple, delicious “farm to table” favorites in a relaxed, comfortable environment.

PUBLIC Express is an exciting new concept that allows guests to enjoy specially designed “packaged” gourmet meals by Jean-Georges. These meals may be enjoyed in your room, or “on the go”.
