Outdoor Dining in Midtown West

According to the New York Times, there are about 25,000 restaurants and bars in NYC. And so, it’s no surprise that the city has a reputation as one of the world’s culinary capitals. Chefs and dishes from around the globe abound, offering a plethora of dining possibilities that every New Yorker knows is one of the great things about living here. Another aspect of the city is its resilience; the food scene is adapting to these unpredictable times, with flexibility and safety as a priority. Outdoor dining is here to stay, and by following a few simple precautions — like mask-wearing for staff and patrons (when not eating, of course), and distancing tables — you can enjoy all of the flavors of a night out at some of the best spots in town right near the Midtown luxury apartments at 555TEN.

While the well-appointed kitchens of 555TEN, with their state-of-the-art appliances and elegant design, are an ideal place to create your own meals with ease, why not don a mask, keep your distance, and sample some of the foodie delights to be found in the vicinity of your Hudson Yards luxury rentals?

Here are some top picks for dining al fresco within minutes of 555TEN:

Ponche Taqueria | 420 West 49th Street

There’s nothing quite like biting into an expertly prepared taco. While this signature Mexican dish may seem simple, once you tilt your head slightly and take a bite, you’ll find that it’s anything but. The tortilla, filling, and sauces combine to create a complex flavor that’s hard to describe — but which makes ordering more easy. Ponche Taqueria is one of the best places to indulge in authentic Mexican food in Hell’s Kitchen. This classic melding of street foods and contemporary touches is sure to please, whether you’re nibbling on chips and guacamole, digging into a tasty torta (a Mexican sandwich), or ordering taco after taco. As a bonus, you can BYOB, but there is a nominal corkage fee. Aprovecho!

Westville | 809 Ninth Avenue

It’s easy to see why Westville is a New York staple. Their dishes are ingredient-focused and unfussy — without being boring. See classic comfort food in a new light as you treat yourself to a decadent bowl of smoky mac and cheese or a crispy buttermilk chicken sandwich. Even the healthier options here are elevated. Think: dijon-dabbled Brussels sprouts or a tangy arugula and parmesan salad.

Boqueria | 260 West 40th Street

Are you dreaming of a trip to the capital of Catalonia, where the bounty of the Mediterranean meets an up-all-night dining culture? Boqueria transports your tastebuds to Barcelona’s lively tapas scene — and the outdoor setting helps to create the proper mood. You don’t have to dine as late as the Spanish, but no matter what time you decide to dig in, start your meal with a glass (or pitcher) of sangria. Then, let yourself go as you order small plates of signature tapas, like crispy and spicy patatas bravas, crunchy croquettas, and seafood-filled paella.

Live Above it All

The Midtown luxury apartments at 555TEN are known for their extensive suite of amenities, extraordinary city views, and central location in the heart of the city. But at the literal pinnacle of these Midtown rentals is a collection of residences dubbed “555X,” which occupy floors 44 to 55 of this gleaming tower designed by SLCE Architects. All 555TEN residents enjoy the choice finishes and interiors by McGinley Design, 24-hour doorman and concierge services from LIVunLtd, the rooftop lounge with its indoor/outdoor fireplace, a full floor dedicated to wellness that includes workout facilities and an indoor saltwater pool, as well as conveniences like app-based management for building services. But the residences in the 555X collection, soaring high above the Manhattan skyline, offer much more — providing residents with a penthouse experience.

These premium residences represent truly elevated levels of comfort and style. One stunning feature is the panoramic views of the city, stretching from the Hudson River to the west; the East River, Queens, and Brooklyn to the east; and the Statue of Liberty on the horizon to the south. And in the kitchens, you’ll find top-of-the-line Miele appliances, an eye-catching kitchen backsplash, and custom-designed lighting fixtures and finishes created by celebrated interior designer Paris Forino. Residents can apply their own personal touches by selecting from custom paint palettes for their bedrooms and living rooms.

The benefits of the 555X collection extend beyond the homes themselves. Exclusive perks for residents include two personal training sessions, a massage, and Wi-Fi — all complimentary. Not only will residents have access to all of the extensive on-site amenities, they will have discounted valet parking and prioritized reservations to the private bowling alley at 555PLAY, which also features an arcade and a children’s playroom. Pet owners can rejoice with special rates for on-site grooming, play groups, and vet visits from pet care providers Throw Me a Bone. And let’s not forget about the climate-controlled dog run on the 12th floor; this four-legged paradise features trees, benches, and water fountains for dogs, in addition to the spectacular views of the city and the Hudson River.

The leasing office is on-site. Contact an agent from the leasing team to view one of 555X’s extraordinary Midtown rentals.

Whether you’re a whiz in the kitchen or someone whose culinary achievements revolve around a microwave oven, there’s always room for improvement when it comes to cooking. And who better to help you than the pros? Take some time to peruse MasterClass.com, where you can learn from some of the best chefs on Earth. Tap into the farm-to-table movement with lessons from Alice Waters. Hone your skills with instruction from Gordon Ramsay — don’t worry, it’s a video class, so Gordon can’t critique you in person.

Meditation

Human beings have probably always felt the occasional need to step back from everyday life, take a deep breath, and ground themselves. With the stress of today’s world, centering yourself is a necessity, and there’s no better way to do it than with meditation. But if you don’t know how to get started, the Calm app is a popular choice for learning. And, perhaps best of all, you can use it anywhere. The app offers meditation tips, classes, and guided sessions for all levels of practice, along with a series of narrated stories to help you sleep. And, thanks to double-paned glass at 555TEN, you’ll be able to get your moment of zen a little more easily.

Yoga

In addition to calming and focusing the mind, it’s important to connect with your body. Yoga helps you do just that. Get some expert guidance online from Gaia (formerly known as Gaiam), a leader in yoga and wellness for over three decades. This renowned wellness company has fostered a community of yogis through products, classes, and online content. The options are endless — bend, stretch, and give yourself a relaxing workout with yoga practices ranging from kundalini to vinyasa flow.

Whether you’re in one of 555TEN’s lofts or a three-bedroom penthouse, there’s more than enough room to roll out the yoga mat and do your sun salutations. And in these Midtown West luxury apartments for rent, you can do all your health and wellness activities surrounded by stunning views of NYC.

5 NYC Rentals With Outdoor Pools to Beat the August Heat, Off The Mrkt

The summer heat may be at its peak, but residents of 555TEN have an easy way to keep cool right at home. Atop the 56-story building’s Midtown luxury apartments sits a stunning roof deck with a spacious pool and sweeping views of the city and the East River from its perch 650 feet above street level. In addition to taking a dip, residents can relax in one of the roof deck’s private cabanas or on a chaise lounge or enjoy some quality time at the building’s all-seasons club and bar.

 

555TEN’s Midtown West

With summer in full swing, bicycling along the Hudson River Park or soaking in the sights, shops, and sounds of Midtown West are just a few ways to take advantage of the sunny weather and the best the city has to offer. Residents of the 555TEN luxury rentals can enjoy an unparalleled suite of rooftop amenities, including the pool, sundeck with cabanas, and club and bar, perfect for lounging with the latest bestseller and a well-deserved cocktail. But just a stone’s throw away from these Midtown West apartments is the Hudson River Greenway, which provides abundant options for staying active while soaking in the greenery and the great outdoors. And, of course, the ideal way to cap off a summer evening is a meal from one of the city’s finest restaurants, which are serving their world-class fare for no-contact delivery, takeout, and limited outdoor dining.

For a breezy jaunt on a bright weekend afternoon or a long-distance cycling session to keep in shape, the Hudson River Greenway is the right destination. One of New York City’s most welcoming outdoor spaces, the well-maintained thoroughfare extends over 12 miles across the West Side of Manhattan, just parallel to the Hudson River, and offers spectacular, unobstructed water views. The Greenway is also removed from city traffic, with separate lanes for cyclists and pedestrian traffic, for added safety and convenience. For additional summer action (or relaxation), the pathway is dotted by kayaking facilities and well-manicured lawns for rest or a casual picnic, as well as playgrounds and basketball courts for an impromptu pickup game.

After a day in the sun, 555TEN residents can return home to prepare a replenishing meal, with the aid of top-of-the-line stainless-steel appliances and quartz-stone countertops, ideal for spreading out and preparing the season’s freshest ingredients. But for maximum convenience, a range of superb dining options are all close by. For the latest from veteran chefs David Bank and Brian Ghaw, Taladwat features what Eater NY describes as “exceptionally delicious” seasonal Thai. Their authentic “countryside” recipes represent the best of Thailand’s regional cuisine, with a range of coconut stews, satisfying mains, and a colorful assortment of spice-infused dishes. Order the tom turmeric with a thick crab cake as its centerpiece, or the pork belly in a sweet and spicy soy broth, or anything really, for convenient takeout or delivery to your door.

One of the neighborhood’s perennial crowd-pleasers, B Side, serves up brick-oven pizza baked to perfection. The crust is quite chewy, and their inventive signature pizzas include the Carbonara, which combines fontina, pancetta, panna with egg, and the Killer Bee, which mixes sweet and spicy with soppressata, garlic puree, chili oil, and honey. For a healthy accompaniment, the roasted Brussel sprouts or black kale salad with pickled, dried apricots, almonds, and mint present the same complexity of flavors as B Side’s beloved pizzas.

For a pastry to accompany your morning coffee or for a warm, crackling baguette to accompany every meal of the week, a visit to Sullivan Street Bakery is in order. This quintessentially New York City bakery was founded by Jim Lahey, the first recipient of the James Beard Award for Outstanding Baker, and has become the destination for foodies and anyone who appreciates an exquisitely baked loaf of bread. The soft community loaf, cornetto, pains au chocolate, focaccia pizza, and pasta, among other delectable goods, are now available for delivery and pickup, along with their cookbooks, which will enable you to recreate some of Lahey’s tasty treats at home.

With a wealth of options for each meal of the day—and for staying active with fresh air, sun, and Hudson River views—residents of the luxury apartments for rent at 555TEN can always make the most of the summer, all within the dynamic Midtown West neighborhood.

In addition to the pool, the 56-story tower offers residents access to an amenity-packed roof, where they can relax on a chaise lounge or in a private cabana, explore the building’s all-season club and bar, or warm up in front of the indoor/outdoor fireplace when the temperature dips.

555TEN: In-Person and Virtual Appointments in Midtown West

Social distancing guidelines are now a part and parcel of daily life in New York City — and 555TEN is no exception. The team here has created a comfortable viewing experience designed to keep prospective new residents safe, while showing them all that these Midtown West apartments have to offer. Here’s what you can expect.

Take a Virtual Tour
Think you might be interested in renting at 555TEN? The first step is a virtual tour. Request one from the leasing team, and you’ll receive high-quality video footage of these luxury rentals — from studios to three-bedroom apartments. Then, from the comfort and safety of your current home, you’ll “walk” through the 555TEN apartments, admiring such features as double-paned window walls, rich wood floors, open-aspect kitchens gleaming with quartz stone counters, and luxurious Porcelanosa-tiled bathrooms.

Because it’s a virtual tour, you can pause and go back as many times as you like. (You can even take a break to have a cup of tea!) If you have questions after the tour — either about the apartments or what the Midtown West district has to offer — you’ll be able to speak to a knowledgeable member of the team online or on the phone.

Take an In-Person Tour
If 555TEN seems right for you, book an in-person tour with the team, so you can see these residences in the flesh. Prior to your arrival, you’ll need to complete a COVID disclosure form, to ensure you understand and adhere to current health and safety policies. When the time for your appointment comes around, your designated leasing agent — and the prospect and broker, if present — will be wearing personal protective equipment.

Throughout your in-person tour of the apartment, social distancing will be maintained. That means you can picture life in your new home safely. At the end of the tour, the rental agent will wash their hands and sanitize, while keeping their mask on. It’s a great time to ask them any remaining questions you might have.

Get to Know the Neighborhood
Before or after your tour, take the opportunity to stroll around Midtown West. From 555TEN, you’ll be within easy walking distance of a slew of coffee shops, restaurants, and supermarkets, not to mention the Theater District and Hudson Yards. If you and your friends or family want to continue discussing your move, why not head to nearby Hudson River Park, where you can sip coffee, gaze out over the Hudson River, and embrace the tranquility. Soon enough, this may be your new local park.

Celebrating Holi with 555TEN and Stage 48

Every year, millions of people around the world come together for a celebration of color and dance called Holi. In Manhattan, of course, they celebrate this ancient Hindu festival on a rooftop, complete with a full bar and live music. That’s the scene in Hell’s Kitchen where tickets for Stage 48’s “Holi in the City” have sold out five years in a row. Taking place just minutes from the Midtown NYC apartments at 555TEN, the event combines the best elements of the Holi celebration and NYC’s institution of the weekend brunch to create a new tradition that’s as good for the soul as it is for the Instagram feed.

Holi goes back at least as far as fourth century India as a festival marking the beginning of spring, and its modern traditions recall these ancient roots. Celebrants used the festival as a way to break free of the rigid caste system and engage in playful water and colored-dye fights with their peers and elders in a chaotic whirlwind of color, music, and dance. In a nod to romance, the tradition of throwing colored powder — resulting in the eye-catching Holi photos that made the festival famous — was inspired by the mythological love story of Krishna and Radha. The colored powders at the heart of the Holi festival represent their love as well as the happiness and freedom that come with the new season.

Today, Holi celebrations take many forms across the globe, all of which involve dousing fellow celebrants with water and colored powder to create psychedelic scenes. At Stage 48, participants are asked to wear white clothes and head to the rooftop for an afternoon of dancing and colors, all to tunes played by live musical performers. Beverages and complimentary appetizers are on hand should anyone need fuel to keep them on the dance floor. And roving photographers are always nearby to capture the colorful magic. And thanks to the organic colored dyes provided by Stage 48, guests can safely paint themselves blue or eye-catching pink.

When the dancing is done, residents of the luxury rental apartments at 555TEN can retreat to their Midtown homes to wash off in their Porcelanosa-tiled bathrooms and dump their newly dyed clothes in their in-unit Bosch washer/dryer for a quick rinse. At 555TEN, you’re never far from the best that Manhattan has to offer, so head over to the building’s website and start your new Midtown life today!
