Champagne sabring. Well-made martinis. A bar with history. It's hard not to feel at least a little classy at the St. Regis Bar downtown. Now, a special booth has been dedicated to those guests who want to feel even more special.
The General's Booth, which launched in the spring, allows up to six guests per night to experience cocktail and food pairings in the intimate location. The booth is named for General John J, Pershing, a World War I general who lived at the hotel and enjoyed having a pre-dinner Old Fashioned back in the 1940s.
Those who book the booth get to experience four paired courses; Decanter chef Sebastien Rondier and beverage director Orcun Turkay collaborate on the menus, which change monthly. Right now, it's a tequila-themed month, with drinks like margaritas and pisco sours paired with dishes like ceviche.
So far, the booth has mostly been reserved by bar regulars and those who have seen others enjoying the pairings while they're visiting the hotel, a spokeswoman said. The Booth costs $99 per person and must be reserved 48 hours in advance.
