New York’s Pierre Hotel: Old World Elegance on Central Park

New York’s Pierre Hotel: Old World Elegance on Central Park

Along with the Plaza, the Waldorf-Astoria, the Sherry-Netherland, the St. Regis, The Peninsula, and The Carlyle, the Pierre Hotel holds a special place in New York City lore as one of its grand old luxury hotels, where even a walk through the lobby offers a trip back in time to a more elegant era. I’ve strolled through the hotel’s lobby before, and peeked into such storied spaces as its grand ballroom and the rotunda, but never had the opportunity to actually spend a night there until recently. After my stay, topped off with dinner and breakfast at the hotel’s flagship restaurant Perrine, I can certainly say that it’s worthy of all the praise it’s received over the years.

Most visitors enter the hotel, which is owned by the Mumbai-based group Taj, through the Fifth Avenue entrance, but arriving guests are encouraged to enter from 61st Street directly into the gleaming marble-clad lobby. Floral arrangements punctuate the arched space, which (at least to me) appears completely unchanged from when the hotel first opened in 1930. The check-in process was a breeze and the front desk agent friendly and professional, and we were escorted to the vintage elevators, where we were surprised to find elevator operators manning each one. I’ve never encountered elevator operators in a hotel before, and can only imagine that these are some of the last ones in the city.

Our room was a Superior King with an interior view, which clocked in at around 300 square feet. The quiet room looked out to 61st Street (the higher-floor Central Park view rooms are the most in-demand, but those also carry a much heftier price tag), and it was chock-full of elegant touches and luxurious amenities: high ceilings, a super-soft king-size bed, a walk-in closet, a bathroom clad in Turkish marble with a glass rain shower, soft carpeting, a 40-inch flatscreen TV, a Bose clock/radio, and a tranquil cream color scheme. We brought a bottle of Champagne with us (because why not?), and an ice bucket was delivered to the room swiftly, full of crushed ice with a hole in the middle that fit the bottle perfectly. Now that’s luxury. Other amenities include 24-hour laundry service with one-hour pressing, a 24-hour doctor on-call, and one of the most comfortable bathrobes I’ve ever encountered. The whole hotel was spotless, and wasn’t stuffy in the least.

Though room service is available 24 hours a day, we decided to have dinner at the hotel’s restaurant, Perrine, formerly Sirio. The long restaurant has a few different entrances for guests arriving from different parts of the hotel, a long bar dominating the first half, and an elegant dining room beyond that. Chef Ashfer Biju has assembled a simple menu of classic dishes prepared using high-quality seasonal ingredients. Appetizers we sampled included a well-balanced classic Caesar salad, fresh tuna tartare with crunchy house potato chips and bright basil pesto, housemade gnocchi with a creamy mushroom velouté, and a crab flatbread on housemade naan topped with fennel, celery leaves, herbs, and Gruyère. Eight main courses include something for everyone, including roasted local vegetables, a high-end burger, and three different fish options; we tried the New Jersey lamb chops, which were perfectly cooked and served with polenta and seasonal vegetables, and nicely roasted and juicy local spring chicken with white wine and pee wee potatoes. There’s also a “Simply Prepared” menu section, with lemon shrimp, lamb chops, black sea bass, filet mignon, Maine lobster, spring chicken, or 28-day dry aged strip steak served grilled or roasted. Side dishes change with the season, and currently include glazed carrots with lime, orange, and chiles; spice-roasted sunchokes with black olive crumble; and grilled asparagus with capers, dill, and hard-boiled eggs. For breakfast the following morning, we had the opportunity to choose from a traditional Continental or American breakfast, or from main course options including an Indian-inspired omelette with tomato, cilantro, and green chiles; huevos rancheros; vanilla waffle with strawberry compote; brioche French toast; buttermilk pancakes with chocolate chips, blueberries, or banana; and a bagel with smoked salmon.


I strongly suggest you visit The Pierre, even if you’re not staying there. Just wandering around its hallowed halls you’ll discover the rotunda, a recently redesigned round room off the ballroom that’s completely covered in elegant murals; as well as the Two E Bar, a stylish Art Deco lobby bar by day (that’s also one of the city’s best spots for afternoon tea) that transforms into a sophisticated cocktail bar at night. There’s also a full calendar of food and drink events that the hotel organizes throughout the year; for example, on June 21 it’ll be celebrating the longest day of the year with a Parisian-style street festival complete with live music, endless rosé, and French food stations; tickets cost $65 and can be purchased here.

In 1921 Mitsou, a book which included forty drawings by Balthus, was published.

In 1926 he visited Florence , copying frescos by Piero della Francesca, which inspired another early ambitious work by the young painter: the tempera wall paintings of the Protestant church of the Swiss village of Beatenberg.

From 1930 to 1932 he lived in Morocco, was drafted into the Moroccan infantry in Kenitra and Fes, worked as a secretary, and sketched his painting La Caserne.

Moving in 1933 into his first Paris studio at the Rue de Furstemberg and later another at the Cour de Rohan, Balthus showed no interest in modernist styles such as Cubism.

In 1937 he married Antoinette de Watteville, who was from an old and influential aristocratic family from Bern .

In 1940, with the invasion of France by German forces, Balthus fled with his wife Antoinette to Savoy to a farm in Champrovent near Aix-les-Bains, where he began work on two major paintings: Landscape near Champrovent (1942–1945) and The Living Room.

In 1942, he escaped from Nazi France to Switzerland, first to Bern and in 1945 to Geneva, where he made friends with the publisher Albert Skira as well as the writer and member of the French Resistance, Andre Malraux.

Christopher Hope, born 1944, wrote a novel, “My Chocolate Redeemer” around a painting by Balthus, “The Golden Days” which is featured on the book jacket.

Balthus returned to France in 1946 and a year later traveled with Andre Masson to Southern France, meeting figures such as Picasso and Jacques Lacan, who eventually became a collector of his work.

In 1948, another friend, Albert Camus, asked him to design the sets and costumes for his play L’Etat de Siège.

With Adolphe Mouron Cassandre in 1950, Balthus designed stage decor for a production of Mozart’s opera Così fan tutte in Aix-en-Provence .

Three years later he moved into the Chateau de Chassy in the Morvan, living with his niece Frederique Tison and finishing his large-scale masterpieces La Chambre (The Room 1952, possibly influenced by Pierre Klossowski‘s novels) and Le Passage du Commerce Saint-Andre.

Setsuko Klossowska de Rola – As a university student, she met the painter Balthus who was visiting Japan for the first time in 1962

Jesus Fuertes – In 1963 Fuertes left for Rome to receive the first place prize for his painting “Torneo Medieval” awarded by the Grand Prix de Rome for Painting and Sculpture, and it was in Italy that he developed a close friendship with Giorgio De Chirico, the renowned master painter of metaphysical art, with whom shortly after he exhibited his work along with notable constructivists and surrealists Balthus, Umberto Boccioni and Carlo Carra in 1965

In 1964, he moved to Rome where he presided over the Villa de Medici as director of the French Academy in Rome, and made friends with the filmmaker Federico Fellini and the painter Renato Guttuso.

The photographers and friends Henri Cartier-Bresson and Martine_Franck (Cartier-Bresson’s wife), both portrayed the painter and his wife and their daughter Harumi in his Grand Chalet in Rossinière in 1999.

In 1977 he moved to Rossinière, Switzerland.

Setsuko Klossowska de Rola – In 1977, Setsuko and Balthus left the French Academy and moved to Le Grand Chalet in Rossinière, Switzerland

In 1921 Mitsou, a book which included forty drawings by Balthus, was published.

In 1926 he visited Florence , copying frescos by Piero della Francesca, which inspired another early ambitious work by the young painter: the tempera wall paintings of the Protestant church of the Swiss village of Beatenberg.

From 1930 to 1932 he lived in Morocco, was drafted into the Moroccan infantry in Kenitra and Fes, worked as a secretary, and sketched his painting La Caserne.

Moving in 1933 into his first Paris studio at the Rue de Furstemberg and later another at the Cour de Rohan, Balthus showed no interest in modernist styles such as Cubism.

In 1940, with the invasion of France by German forces, Balthus fled with his wife Antoinette to Savoy to a farm in Champrovent near Aix-les-Bains, where he began work on two major paintings: Landscape near Champrovent (1942–1945) and The Living Room.

In 1942, he escaped from Nazi France to Switzerland, first to Bern and in 1945 to Geneva, where he made friends with the publisher Albert Skira as well as the writer and member of the French Resistance, Andre Malraux.
