Midtown Manhattan’s latest bistro-style restaurant redefines elegance and beauty
Auden Bistro and Bar provides guests of The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park with an ideal Manhattan dining destination featuring Chef Mark Arnao’s refined adaptation of traditional bistro cuisine in the heart of New York City. Featuring clean flavors, and simple, yet refined presentations, the restaurant’s menu emphasizes regionally sourced ingredients and sustainable seafood. The world famous design firm, The Rockwell Group, has created a beautiful open-floor plan design, tying together the Lobby Lounge, Bar, and Restaurant into a stunning space overlooking New York’s 6th Avenue and perfectly mirroring the Central Park
hotel’s impeccable classic design.
Adjoining the midtown Manhattan restaurant is Auden Bar, featuring legendary New York bartender Norman Bukofzer. As everyone who knows Norman would say, he perfectly exemplifies the meaning of Auden, which is “old friend.” Striking the perfect balance of warmth, conversation, and exceptional bar skills, Norman has been welcoming both old friends and new friends to his bar for decades. Featuring a wide assortment of local spirits and beers, as well as an exceptional cocktail list, Auden Bar is the newest chapter in his story.
