Ace Hotel’s ‘Sister City’ Goes Live on the Bowery
As previously reported, Ace spent the last several years renovating 225 Bowery, including a glassy rooftop addition and cornice atop the original pre-war tenement building. There are roughly 200 rooms (starting at $199 per night).
For food-and-beverage, Floret is pegged as the all-day restaurant on the ground floor – conceived by chef Joe Ogrodnek (Battersby, Dover) – featuring a Mediterranean-inspired menu and wine list by Josh Hanover. Expect healthy, “accessible” dishes like eggs, sandwiches, salads and pastas, all with plenty of vegetables.
Sister City has been booking reservations on its website for March 1 onward. In fact, the first ten days of the month are sold out. And OpenTable shows April 1 as start for Floret.
This timetable is months behind schedule. When news of its launch surfaced one year ago, “fall 2018” was teased. Then pushed back to January 2019.
