Brooklyn's latest trend? Boutique hotels. And of all the latest additions,The Wythe (dubbed "the foodie hotel") has all of the expected attributes in spades: preserved and renovated historical space for stay-overs, in-house "whole animal" dining at Reynards restaurant, and rooftop drinking with a stunning skyline backdrop at The Ides. Owner and operator Andrew Tarlow (behind beloved establishments Diner, Marlow & Sons and Marlow & Daughters) fashioned the hotel with his usual sustainability slant.
The converted 1901 factory features custom beds constructed from the building's ceiling pine, high original timber ceilings that perfectly accommodate floor-to ceiling windows throughout, locally made furniture, custom wallpaper and bath products, as well as commissioned artworks also stand-out. Diners can of course rest assured Reynard's follows the Tarlow ethos: organic, in season, local and delicious. And when it comes to summer drinks, The Ides offers a gorgeous rooftop terrace complete with brass, iron, marble, and tile mosaic touches.
