Weekend brunch service will begin on Saturday, April 28.
The McKittrick Hotel (530 West 27th Street, NYC), home of Sleep No More, will re-open its popular year-round rooftop hideaway Gallow Green with the annual “Herb Festival” on Friday, April 20.
This past winter, New York City’s most transportive rooftop getaway was home to The Lodge at Gallow Green, a cozy mountainside lodge nestled atop the hotel in a secluded forest of pine trees. Now, the whimsical, overgrown secret garden is set to return for the warmer months.
Gallow Green specializes in potent cocktails, signature large-format punches and seasonal cuisine for dinner, plus a brunch buffet featuring live music on weekends. The McKittrick’s Executive Chef Pascal Le Seac’h developed the menu with Frenchette team and former Balthazar colleagues Lee Hanson and Riad Nasr.
Elevated small plates and salads range from Steak Tartare, Tuna Crudo, Kale Caesar and Bulgur Wheat Green Salad, to tender Calamari and Fried Cheese Curds with green tomato compote. Sharable plates include a Crudité Bowl that is almost too gorgeous to eat, a Cheese Plate and Charcuterie & Salumi, which can also be combined for a selection of both.
Pizzas, made fresh to order in the rooftop’s wood burning oven, include Vegetable, Meatball, Prosciutto and Cherrystone Clams, as well as Classic, Pepperoni and Margherita. Lobster Rolls, Grilled Octopus with Romesco, Swordfish with saffron aioli, Steak Skewers and a Sandwich Cubano round out the Mains.
Brunch features live music by MK Groove and a well-appointed buffet spread, complete with assorted Pastries & Sweets like croissants, mini cinnamon buns savory breads and candy, as well as Greek Yogurt with Granola and Fresh Fruit; a cold buffet featuring Shrimp, Quinoa, Beet and Tomato & Mozzarella Salads; hot buffet items like Fried Chicken, Moussaka; an Omelette Station; and Carving Station featuring whole baked Salmon and crispy Suckling Pig. Coffee and tea are included, while Bloody Marys and other brunch cocktails are available to enhance the meal.
