What do Michael Mina, the Voltaggio brothers, David Burke, and Tyler Florence have in common? They’ve all worked at various restaurants under Charlie Palmer — who has just opened Charlie Palmer Steak at The Archer Hotel. It’s a leapfrog move from its E. 54th St. location in what had been David Burke Fabrick.
The new Charlie Palmer Steak is 90-seat spot as well as a rooftop bar called Spyglass. The restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily with chef Ryan Lory at the helm, with dishes like clams casino, a porterhouse for two, and kobe strip steak, as well as the restaurant’s $29 lunch prix fixe.
The group is opening another restaurant at the Archer Hotel Napa, which is on track to open later this year.
Charlie Palmer opened Aureole in 1988, when he was 28 — the most progressive of his nearly 20 restaurants, where he trained Mina and Bryan Voltaggio. Today, Charlie Palmer has seven restaurants in New York, and a handful across the country in Washington, D.C., Las Vegas, and California.
