Chelsea’s ultra-mod Hotel Americano has added a splash of spice and flair to its lobby with the opening of La Central.
This Pan-American restaurant, led by Executive Chef Franklin Becker, has a menu influenced by Mexican and Peruvian cuisine and heightened with the flavors that ignite passion in his team of chefs. A canvas of modern neutrals allows this diversity of spices, textures, and flavors to shine, and integrates seamlessly with the hotel’s décor. Becker and his team have chosen to set their tables with Felt + Fat’s signature B&B plate in slate, a cool, satin-matte black finish, framed by Sambonet’s Hannah flatware collection.
When it’s time for a drink, have one of Michael Parrish’s sharp and balanced cocktails in equally balanced glassware. The Broken Shaker alum is using Bormioli Rocco’s Bodega and Rona’s Minners, both from Steelite, to showcase his creations.
Figgjo’s Pax collection serves as the stage for Becker’s delicious and thoughtful cuisine that honors tradition while updating it – delectably. You’ll see Figgjo’s porcelain throughout your meal, in optic white and in subtle tones of grey and beige. Tacos arrive in a stainless steel taxi atop the Pax 8” racetrack oval, a unique shape that is growing increasingly popular on the tabletop. Order the enchiladas and you’ll receive Figgjo’s Ting 8-1/4” plate with a slanted lip, perfect for not leaving a morsel behind.
