After a $40 million makeover, the historic Paramount Hotel has reopened in New York City's Times Square. Dating back to 1928, the establishment (which houses 597 guestrooms and suites) has a reputation of being one of the Theater District’s 20th-century social hubs. Its most recent incarnation also introduces a new restaurant, Paramount Bar & Grill, as well as a new Italian-style coffee bar called Corso.
According to a press release, Paramount Bar & Grill's 86-seat dining room and 20-seat full-service bar and lounge will serve "modern comfort food" for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The restaurant welcomes executive chef Jason Kallert who has worked at classic NYC spots including Tavern on the Green and Le Cirque. In the spirit of the restaurant, chef Kallert’s menu will include a deluxe burger, meatballs, grilled whole branzino, and chicken pot pie.
Corso will serve espresso-based drinks in addition to a "light comfort fare" menu. The coffee bar will serve locally roasted, artisanal American drip Corso Coffee throughout the day.
The Paramount Hotel is located on 46th Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenue. In addition to the restaurant and bar, it also offers retail, event space, and fitness options.
