A fixture in cosmopolitan cities around the world, the bistro combines the comfort of a familiar, relaxed setting and the simple flavors of impeccably prepared food. Honoring that tradition while reinventing it for today, Auden Bistro & Bar offers its own refined adaptation in the heart of midtown Manhattan. Led by chef Mark Arnao, the restaurant kitchen focuses on regionally sourced ingredients and sustainable seafood. In the bar, legendary bartender Norman Bukofzer balances exceptional cocktails and local spirits and beers with his warmth and conversation. Both spaces are tied together with Star Lounge thanks to a beautifully designed open floor plan overlooking Manhattan’s Sixth Avenue.
