Handpicked “Must-Do’s” for Your Fall Staycation in the City 

Our Chef Concierge, Francisco Andeliz, Suggests 

Central Park bridge over water

There’s no better time to take in the city’s vibrant happenings than the fall season, and there’s no better ‘home-away-from home’ to enjoy it all than Baccarat Hotel New York. From scenic walks in the park to avant-garde cultural moments, our Chef Concierge Francisco Andeliz has curated the ultimate ‘to do’ list. Just be sure to save room for champagne toasts and world-class dining.

City Scene

The hotel is within easy reach of the most celebrated sights and sounds of the city and  The Edge at Hudson Yards is among the many outdoor attractions to enjoy. A visit to this highest outdoor sky deck in the Western Hemisphere allows for an outer-worldly experience suspended in the air 100 stories above the ground. Directly across the street from the hotel at MoMA, art enthusiasts will appreciate the first exhibition dedicated to the influential but little-known artist Félix Fénéon who helped shape the development of modernism. Central Park is another one of the city’s treasures, replete with fall’s beautiful colors at every turn, charming foot bridges, and rolling landscapes. 

Fall Fashion Forays

New York’s glamorous Fall Fashion Week may have ended, but the city eternally remains the one of the world’s premier shopping destinations. Located in the heart of chic SoHo, The Webster is a luxury multi-brand boutique which has become a destination in and of itself. The 12,000 square-foot space features collections from the exclusive designers such as Chanel, Celine, Gucci, Valentino and Balenciaga just to name a few. Further uptown, Nordstrom’s flagship Women’s Store offers seven floors of thoughtfully curated clothing, shoes and accessories, as well as beauty, home goods and new restaurants, cafes and bar. Nordstrom’s Mens Store is directly across the street. Just steps from the hotel, guests can discover what makes the beloved Saks Fifth Avenue one of the city’s most endearing landmarks. Whether arranging an exclusive personal shopping appointment, visiting The Vault to see the finest collection of jewelry and watches, or dining at the L’Avenue upscale top floor eatery, a legendary experience awaits. And of course, the Baccarat Flagship on Madison Avenue is not to be missed for the latest collections and timeless classics of fine crystal.

On the Menu

Looking for dining recommendations at one of the city’s premier restaurants? There is certainly no shortage of inspired options.  For an inviting luxurious night out, discover the Two Michelin-starred Gabriel Kreuther Restaurant, the namesake restaurant of the hotel’s Culinary Director.  Guests can choose from a tasting menu in the main dining room, or elevated Alsatian-inspired dishes in the walk-in bar and lounge. Redefining the seascape of high-end Italian cuisine, one Michelin-starred Marea features seafood specialties and house made pasta offered in a chic Central Park South setting. Further downtown in Tribeca, the upscale modern bistro hot spot Frenchette showcases modern and traditional French menu items in a stylish and welcoming setting.
