Fresh Garden-To-Table Dining Unveiled at The Waldorf Astoria New York

The new garden will help supply local ingredients for the hotel's menu
The garden was built in conjunction with the Horticultural Society of New York.

The Waldorf Astoria, an official New York City landmark since 1993, has been an internationally recognized symbol of elegance and grace for more than 100 years. As such the Art Deco masterpiece, occupying an entire city block of midtown Manhattan is at the epicenter of the city's cultural and social community. A grand hotel with cosmopolitan restaurants, bustling lounges and bars and intriguing boutiques, The Waldorf is a microcosm of the city it has served so well for so long. The property recently unveiled an exotic rooftop garden built as the second phase of the 20th floor outdoor space which opened with six beehives last spring.

The garden, built in conjunction with the Horticultural Society of New York (THE HORT), complements the hotel's ability to uniquely present fresh, local ingredients for use throughout the hotel while aiding the surrounding environment. The transformed oasis high above Lexington Avenue features nine raised planting beds, six trees and numerous potted plants.
