Dining at the Americano in Chelsea

March 19, 2012

Yes, New York can be a bit of a gray place at times. But several chilly weeks ago we threw a party at the Hôtel Americano and found ourselves admiring the restaurant's elegant interior; in particular, the palette of cool gray tweaked with a dash of yellow.

Although the mesh clad hotel exterior reads modernist, the interior boasts a quiet vibrancy that comes from the rich combination of materials (marble-topped tables, concrete columns, felt coasters, linen napkins) and sparing use of color. Paris-based designer Arnaud Montigny (responsible for Paris cult-shop Colette) worked in conjunction with Mexico City-based architect Enrique Norten of TEN Arquitectos and the Mexico-based Grupo Habita to create a Euro-Latin interior that reads refined global chic.

For more information on the Hôtel Americano see Hotels & Lodging: Hotel Americano in New York City.
