Tucked inside the Financial District's Beekman Hotel, which marries old-school glamour with modern indulgences, Temple Court is a stunning addition to the neighborhood. This culinary and architectural feat hails from the Colicchio restaurant family, and Chef Bryan Hunt composes dishes that live up to the hype. Think silky foie gras with bright persimmon; diver scallops with leeks and black truffles; rabbit schnitzel with pistachio; or tender lamb with Niçoise olives, Swiss chard and lemon confit. The lush dining room finds its match in stunning, ceiling-high stained glass windows. But don't leave until you've taken a spin through the adjacent Bar Room, which offers a bevy of serious cocktails and the chance to ogle the impressive nine-level atrium.
