No longer in its original Upper East Side townhouse digs, Charlie Palmer’s Aureole has managed to hold onto both its prestige and clientele through a 2009 migration to Midtown. Now housed in the Bank of America building in Times Square, a new vitality enlivens the 25-year-old New York institution. Executive Chef Marcus Gleadow-Ware indulges diners in lush fine-dining staples, such as Hudson Valley foie gras and dry aged ribeye. Pastry Chef Pierre Poulin and Sommelier Justin Lorenz bring their gastronomic expertise, rounding out the menu with finesse. In a quasi-retro room dominated by a sleek chandelier, watch as the sommelier selects your pairings from the wine room, a glass-walled gallery overlooking the bar space. This is the place to be for à la carte dining, from oysters on the half shell to an indulgent burger, while the dining room is all about tasting menus.
