New York Minute: The Beekman Hotel, Fowler & Wells, and Little Owl

In a city constantly evolving, indulge in these choice offerings – a neighborhood staple celebrating 10 years and two of the city’s hottest new names

The Beekman Hotel [Downtown Manhattan]

Brought to life in the heart of Manhattan’s oldest and most dynamic neighborhood, The Beekman Hotel is on the site of the former Chapel Street Theatre, where Shakespeare’s Hamlet made its New York debut in 1761. Envisioned by award-winning designer Martin Brudnizki, the Beekman brings guests to the intersection of old world glamour and modern luxury in Brudnizki’s singular aesthetic vision. A Thompson Hotel property, The Beekman offers five basic room types as well as five tiers of suite offerings. In addition the hotel can accommodate events for as few as 18 and as many as 225.

Fowler & Wells [Downtown Manhattan]

New York City Culinary icon Tom Colicchio (a five-time James Beard Award winner) continues to expand his Crafted Hospitality empire, this time in partnership with The Beekman Hotel. The dining room houses rich leathers, jewel-toned furnishings, and antiques, which accompany Colicchio’s menu brilliantly. Fowler & Wells pays homage to the cultural and culinary history of Lower Manhattan. Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch, you won’t want to miss this meal whether staying at The Beekman or in the neighborhood. We suggest you try the Diver Scallops in the evening and Vanilla Pancakes in the morning.

Little Owl [Greenwich Village]

Little Owl has been a fixture on the corner of Bedford and Grove for a decade. The menu rotates seasonally and often features fresh fish caught by Chef Joey Campanaro. The dining room only seats 32 (28 at tables and 4 at the Chef’s Table – the bar) so if you cannot grab a seat feel free to try sister restaurants Market Table and The Clam. Open for lunch, dinner, and brunch on weekends, Little Owl provides the variety you need on a business or leisure trip to Manhattan.
