Of course while in New York I had to pay a visit to the Pierre hotel. I would have to say the name of the hotel is in very good taste. I actually didn’t stay at the hotel during this trip but I did have a chance to visit their Two E Bar and Lounge. It’s a quaint little establishment just through the lobby. I invited New York food blogger Dara aka the SkinnyPigNYC along to enjoy the experience.
The styling of the hotel along with the lounge is of a luxurious fashion which Pierre is very accustomed to. Only the finest for me please. I’ve spoke about it in past articles but this is the type of elegance that I truly appreciate.
We walked into the lounge to be greeted by a friendly bartender named Paul. We got a nice table that had a great view of the piano. Throughout the evening there was a pianist who set the mood quite nicely.
Our server came and we basically ordered the entire menu. Dara and I enjoyed most of the items but specifically the chicken wings and the Reuben sandwich. The chicken wings were the juiciest chicken wings I think I’ve ever had. Great work Two E. The Reuben was perfect. It had crispy bread, gooey melted cheese and juicy meat. A work of art. Seriously.
Obviously, we ordered a few cocktails along the way. All were done quite nicely and were delightful to drink with the food. Who would have thought that alcohol and food would go so well together? Har har.
Our server provided fantastic service throughout the meal. Whenever we had a question he was right there ready to answer. That said, it was exactly what I would expect from a hotel of this caliber. Especially with a name like Pierre.
We got so stuffed with food and alcohol but then it was time for dessert! Both choices we made looked beautiful and had a taste to match! Of course we had to make sure our digestive systems were in order so we ended with a little more alcohol.
All in all, the evening at Two E was quite spectacular. Not all of the dishes knocked our socks off but most were good and as I said before the chicken wings and the Reuben were absolutely amazing. You must order them! No exceptions. I think if you’re looking for a nice relaxing lounge with great service, ambiance, food and drinks you’re sure to have a great time at Two E!
