While we’d never recommend roaming to the back of Lenox unless you’ve got a questionable hookup on Bloomingdale's goods, Three Arches at the Hyatt Centric has pan-Mediterranean cuisine and a cocktail list that’s reason enough to make your way here. We’re big fans of the Pan-Manhattan, which incorporates figs and Metaxa, a Greek wine-based spirit, and other Mediterranean staples like Greek yogurt, pistachio, and pine nut make interesting appearances in more specialty drinks. Bring a small crew and order several small plates and shareable sides, including a creamy yogurt mint sauce and the super smooth baba ghanoush with a tangy tomato salad. The quiet, spacious venue also has a large outdoor patio with a central fire pit, where we intend to plant ourselves with lots of housemade sangria on chilly fall nights.
