This is most definitely not NYC on the Cheap: a $10,000 package for two-night stay in a five-star hotel, nine-course dinner for two in a Michelin three-star restaurant, a backstage tour and VIP seating at Lincoln Center, side-by-side spa treatments, services of a personal shopper and other tantalizing perks.
It’s a luxury lifestyle deal worthy of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, better known as Prince William and Kate Middleton, who just returned home after their first official visit to New York City
The package celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Time Warner Center in Columbus Circle. The hotel is the Mandarin Oriental, housed in the top half of one of the TWC towers, where you would get a suite with a grand view of Central Park.
The dinner is at Thomas Keller’s Per Se, widely regarded as one of the best restaurants in NYC and among the top dining experiences in North America. In addition to the nin-course chef’s tasting dinner, you get a tour of the kitchen and the chance to chat with the chefs.
The package includes another kitchen experience at A Voce, where you’ll part in a one-hour pasta making lesson, followed by a four-course lunch with wine from the restaurant’s 8,000 bottle collection, in the restaurant’s private dining room.
The Couple’s Escape experience is in the comfort of a private Spa Suite, including a soothing bath with signature oil blends and side-by-side “Time Rituals,” followed by private time.The VIP experience at Jazz at Lincoln Center includes a private backstage tour to walk the halls that have welcomed jazz legends such as Ornette Coleman, Wynton Marsalis, and Maria Schneider, VIP concert seating in The Appel Room, Rose Theater or Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, and an exclusive meet and greet with performers, subject to availability.
There’s also a personal shopper to help you make the most of designer shopping inside TWC, including C. Wonder, Cole Haan, Hugo Boss, L.K. Bennett, Stuart Weitzman and Thomas Pink. You might also wander into H&M for trendy fashions at bargain prices.
