Inside Monterey, the Opulent New NYC Restaurant
By Tori Latham
New York City is returning to its olden days of glitz and glam, and one restaurant in particular is hopping on that trend: Monterey, which opens Thursday in Midtown. From the team behind Dagon, and with the chef James Tracey (Isabelle’s Osteria, Gramercy Tavern) at the helm, Monterey is serving up classic American favorites in a space that harkens back to the Art Deco era. With the terrazzo tiling, blue banquettes and a speakeasy room up on the balcony, you’ll feel like you’re being transported right back to the glory days of Manhattan excess.
