The Ultimate New York City Escape
When it comes to a perfect day in New York City, there’s no better place to find it than The Shops at Columbus Circle. Here, you can get pampered at one of the world’s best hotels, shop for anything your heart desires, and experience the finest in dining. Plus, the temperature at The Shops at Columbus Circle is always cool and inviting. From morning to evening, we've got an experience made for you.
Start your day: Tartinery
Who needs to fly to France when you have Tartinery? This French-inspired café-bar is the next best thing to a bakery in Paris. It’s hard to resist the restaurant’s namesake dish: the tartine, an iconic French sandwich topped with ingredients ranging from creamy burrata cheese and heirloom tomatoes to smoked salmon and crème fraiche. And in case that didn’t make you hungry, there are many other treats to tempt you: croissants, scones, and even mini bundt cakes made with offbeat ingredients like matcha and olive oil.
Indulge yourself: Mandarin Oriental
From the impeccable decor to the top-notch service, the Mandarin Oriental, New York brings the luxury and serenity of Asia to Manhattan. Spend a few hours at the spa, which has treatments and spaces (vitality pools, an amethyst crystal steam room) tailor-made to soothe your mind, body, and spirit. There are also all-encompassing wellness retreats that include multiple treatments, activities, and nourishing meals — everything you need to feel revitalized. Want to stay the night? Choose from a room with views of Central Park or the Hudson River.
Book a private shopping experience: BOSS
Everyone is a VIP at The Shops at Columbus Circle, which has over 50 trendsetting stores and boutiques. But if you want to go all out, book the BOSS Private Shopping Experience. During this personal styling appointment, you’ll work with an expert consultant who will help create curated looks for any occasion. After you’ve chosen your signature styles, personalize them with complimentary monogramming. And just when you thought it couldn't get any better — the BOSS consultants will have your purchases directly delivered to you at home or your room at the Mandarin Oriental.
Have a star-studded dinner: Per Se and Masa
Fun fact: The Restaurant and Bar Collection consists of a combined total of six Michelin stars, the most under one roof. Here are two delicious options for a star-studded dinner.
With striking views of Columbus Circle and Central Park, Per Se is a rare blend of open space and intimacy, discreet drama and understated luxury. Choose from two tasting menus: a nine-course chef’s tasting menu or a nine-course vegetable tasting menu. No single ingredient is ever repeated throughout the meal.
Or maybe you’re in the mood for a meal at Masa, led by one of Japan’s most celebrated culinary superstars, Chef Masayoshi Takayama. A solid hinoki wood sushi counter is the focal point of the otherwise simple décor, allowing the ingredients and dishes to shine. It’s no wonder Chef Takayama describes the omakase dining experience at Masa as “shibui,” an expression of subtle beauty and timeless refinement.
