While it may be a little uncommon, this one Michelin star restaurant, serves up British cuisine. Situated on the second floor of the Edition Hotel, the Clocktower was the result of a collaboration between an American restauranteur, and a British chef. The inside itself is spilt into a bar, a dining room, and a billiard room, which is worth the visit alone. There are lots of British classics on the menu, such a fish and chips, with, of course, a Michelin twist, but there are also a few dishes that are influenced by other parts of Europe, making for a creative and eclectic mix on the menu. The Clocktower is a real treat, not just because of its status, but simply because it is so beautiful, so elegant, and so different. An evening at the Clocktower is one to remember and a great representation of British flair. You must make a reservation, but you can do this on their website – https://theclocktowernyc.com/
