A Coffee Lover’s Paradise in Midtown Manhattan

New Yorkers are fueled by coffee. New Yorkers drink seven times more of the stuff than average for Americans, and the city has more coffeehouses per capita than anywhere else in the country. Takeout coffee cups are even an important accessory in New York fashion, from clear plastic domes with iced lattes inside to the iconic blue and white Greek coffee cup full of hot java. New Yorkers pay close attention to the coffee shops near their building, and the many high-quality coffeehouses around 555TEN make living in these Midtown rentals a treat for connoisseurs.

555TEN residents will want to pick up their morning cup at The Jolly Goat, which has been brewing exquisite espresso beverages since 2014. Using beans roasted by their sister company, Urban Rooster Coffee, The Jolly Goat serves the full range of drip and espresso drinks as well as specialty versions like Turmeric or Beetroot Wellness Lattes, which combine the classic flavors of a latte with root powders that boost vital functions. The Jolly Goat also serves tea and seasonal beverages like hot apple cider, keeping customers coming back for more all year.

For a lunchtime treat and refuel on caffeine, 555TEN residents can head to Bibble and Sip, the cute coffeehouse bringing French baking and Asian flavors together to create a line of unique and mouthwatering pastries, backed up by a line of specialty lattes. Creations like the Earl Grey Vanilla Cream Puff and the dessert cakes inspired by Japanese kawaii-style confections are as eye-catching as they are delicious, while drinks like the Matcha Jasmine Latte and Iced Black Coffee Float are sure to tempt even the most diehard coffee purists. Not to worry, though; Bibble and Sip’s menu also features delicious standard drinks like Americanos and Cortados.

When the time comes for that mid-afternoon pick-me-up, 555TEN residents will love swinging by Bird & Branch, the avian-themed coffeehouse serving flavorful coffee concoctions and delicious baked goods. Seasonal offerings like the Mockingbird (a latte made with kabocha and fresh cinnamon) live alongside the full range of traditional espresso and drip coffee options as well as baked goods from around the globe, including everything from Yuzu Ricotta Toast to Horchata Granita. Customers will have a hard time resisting one of the shop’s pie slices, which this season include Blackberry Ginger and Black Sesame Brown Butter Pies.

These are just a few of the many high-quality coffeehouses within easy walking distance of the Midtown luxury apartments at 555TEN. So, enjoy a fresh cup of joe and schedule a virtual or in-person tour of 555TEN today!

Winter Wonderland!

When you’re in the midst of New York City at the “most wonderful time of the year,” that means (frosted) window shopping, sipping hot apple cider and cocoa from the farmers’ market, and bundling up to go ice skating in some of the city’s magnificent public rinks. Just around a few corners from the Midtown Manhattan apartments at 555TEN is one of the season’s most beloved destinations—Bryant Park’s Bank of America Winter Village.

Unlike anything else in the city, this aptly self-proclaimed winter wonderland is every holiday lover’s paradise—with shopping, food, and festivities spread out in a European-inspired open-air market. But the piece de resistance of this holiday village is its 17,000-square-foot ice skating rink, the only free-admission rink of its kind in the city. Bring your own skates (or rent a pair) and show off your spins and jumps or clutch your partner as you glide along for the fun. Children under 10 can rent skate mates as they learn the basics safely.

This year, the skating rink has taken on added safety protocols to ensure skating remains safe for visitors and staff. Rental equipment will be sanitized, and high-touch surfaces disinfected throughout the day, with hand sanitizer and washing stations located around the park. Convenient online booking will guarantee skaters can stay safely distanced, and masks will be required for staff and skaters alike.

After a final brisk lap around the rink, a visit to the après-skate Lodge Deck cocktail bar is in order. Visitors can enjoy cocktails or hot beverages to warm up, as well as food items, including toasted marshmallows while taking in the Christmas Tree and skaters whizzing by.

For those who prefer staying off the ice, plenty of attractions still await. Nonskaters can book a 90-minute session of iceless curling at the curling cafe. Or, for a relaxing afternoon, cozy igloos are available for renting. These private, dome-shaped pockets of furnished space are ideal for an intimate gathering of friends of up to eight. Best of all, you can stay warm in the heated space while enjoying food and drink items ordered straight to your igloo, all in the center of one of the most bustling spots in the city.

Everyone can enjoy browsing or doing gift shopping in the holiday shops lining Bryant Park. The panoply of shops, all housed in custom-designed kiosks, include food purveyors; clothing and accessories vendors; home and pet suppliers; art, jewelry, and wellness gifts; and holiday wares for a true one-stop holiday shopping experience. Meanwhile, kiosks selling sweets, crepes, waffles, Chinese street snacks, and Italian dishes can fuel another round of shopping, skating, or ambling through the winter village.

This year, whether it’s for an ice-skating outing or a last-minute gift for the hardest-to-shop-for family member, residents of the Midtown rentals at 555TEN can experience the best of winter right near home at Bryant Park.

Cooking for the Holidays

The holiday season is all about bringing together family and friends with fantastic food. And there’s no better place to host than the no-fee luxury rentals at 555TEN. The kitchens here feature premium stainless-steel appliances for storing and cooking—plus quartz-stone countertops for food prep and dishing up in style. Here are some delicious recipes to try in your apartment as part of a seasonal soiree.

Spinach Tortellini Soup

A steaming bowl of soup is just what’s called for on a chilly Midtown day. This spinach tortellini recipe is blissfully simple to make: add cheese tortellini to stewed tomatoes, chicken stock, and spinach, then season with minced garlic and basil. Top tip: this soup tastes even better if your guests have begun their visit to 555TEN with a bracing dip in the Skytop Pool, with its dazzling views of Manhattan and the Hudson River. Send them up there first, and it’ll give you the time you need to finish making the meal too.

Black Bean Spaghetti Carbonara

Carbonara is a sure-fire winner in the winter months. But for this particular main course, eschew the usual weighty pasta in favor of this black bean spaghetti dish. It’s got all the rich flavors of a carbonara—smoked pancetta, eggs, double cream—but it’s lower-carb and a tad healthier. The unusual color of the spaghetti provides a talking point as well. Serve it up in the apartment living room, accompanied by wintry vistas of NYC plus a bottle or two of organic Toscana red from local Odyssey Wine & Spirits.

Barefoot Contessa’s Old-Fashioned Apple Crisp

Here’s the show-stealer for your get-together: a good old-fashioned apple crisp spiked with zingy orange and lemon juice and spiced up with nutmeg and cinnamon. This scrummy dessert is all about the juxtaposing textures and tastes: a soft, molten apple filling; crumbly, chewy oatmeal topping; and a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream to finish. If you hadn’t already won your guests over, you have now.

After-Dinner Digestif

The food may be polished off, but the party’s not over yet. Ascend to the 56th story of 555TEN to indulge in post-dinner digestifs with a view. While you and your friends and family sip a Calvados or Armagnac in the intimate lounge and bar—complete with indoor-outdoor fireplace—drink in the expansive views and regale yourselves with stories of holiday seasons gone by. 2020 may have been a strange year, but your guests will always remember this party fondly.
