The Milling Room features seasonal locally-sourced American cuisine prepared by Executive Chef Phillip Kirschen-Clark in a skylit dining room and lively tavern-inspired bar in the heart of the Upper West Side.
The Milling Room opened in November 2014 and occupies the space which was originally built in 1890 as the luxurious Endicott Hotel. When the original hotel opened, it was described as "in all respects, the finest and best appointed in this part of the city." Designed by Edward Angell, who also designed several other prominent buildings on the Upper West Side, and build by Charles A. Fuller, the hotel was crafted of Pompeian brick and terracotta, including a glass-roofed Palm Room where today in its place is The Milling Room. The building sits between 81st and 82nd St. on Columbus Avenue, diagonal from the American Museum of Natural History.
