McKittrick Hotel to Open Gallow Green Roof

The McKittrick Hotel (530 West 27th Street, NYC), home of Sleep No More, has announced the spring opening of its rooftop restaurant and bar, Gallow Green. A new seasonal dinner and drink menu will launch with the annual Herb Festival on April 20.

McKittrick’s secret rooftop garden is back in bloom – overflowing with flowers, grasses and hanging vines that create a whimsical, dreamlike setting. The outdoor area has plenty of intimate nooks for a romantic one-on-one as well as protection from the elements to welcome guests, rain or shine. Perfect before or after one of the hotel’s award-winning theater experiences.

Gallow Green celebrates the return of spring with the annual Herb Festival on Wednesday 4/20. Admission includes past samples of the new menu, Taco, Slider, and Specialty Cocktail station tastings, plus beer, wine, and Prosecco. Tickets are $60 per person (+taxes, fees, and gratuity) for a two-hour session at 5 or 7:30 p.m.

The menu is prepared by the Executive Chef, Pascal Le Seac’h. Originally from France, Le Seac’h has been cooking professionally in New York for over 20 years. He first trained at the Michelin-starred Chantecler in Nice, before heading the kitchens of famous restaurateurs André Balazs at Sunset Beach Resort and Keith McNally at Balthazar and Pastis. During his distinguished career, Le Seac’h has also worked for Michelin-starred chefs Daniel Boulud in his eponymous restaurant, Daniel, and Jean-Michel Diot at the Park Bistro.

Menu highlights include new tacos with chicken, steak, carnitas, prawns or cactus on corn tortillas freshly made on site, and grilled Scottish salmon on a bed of Bibb lettuce with seasonal vegetables and a rosé cava vinaigrette. The heartiest dishes include an Angus flat iron steak, served with a silky pink peppercorn sauce, and a signature cheeseburger made with a special blend of DeBragga steak, bacon marmalade and pickles. Extra crispy fries with a touch of Aleppo pepper seasoning accompany both.

Chilled Raw Bar selections, beautifully presented crudités, a Saxelby cheese plate, lightly fried calamari and decadent desserts are the perfect start and end to any meal.

Guests can sip craft cocktails inspired by the hotel and its residents, such as Sleep No More (pea flower-infused vodka, elderflower and rosé cider), Gallow Green (bourbon, blue curacao, citrus and ginger ) and World’s Fair Trade (matcha-infused mezcal and cucumber). Wine by the glass or bottle, local beer and seasonal ciders are also available.

Gallow Green has appeared on “Top Rooftop” lists for Business Insider, Condé Nast Traveler, Eater, Esquire, Grub Street, The Infatuation and USA Today, as well as “Most Romantic” lists for Forbes, Glamour, GQ, Sunday Times UK , Gotham, InsideHook, Time Out New York, and more.
