Nine Orchard is a new hotel in the far corner of the Lower East Side known as Dimes Square, and there’s quite a bit going on inside. In addition to a restaurant from the chef behind Estela and Altro Paradiso, there’s a fancy cocktail bar set in the former bank’s most ornate room where they’re making equally fancy cocktails. The scene here is more button-downs than crop tops, which is different for the neighborhood, but it’s worth coming to take in the beautiful, impressive space. Food-wise, you won’t be having a full dinner here, but try the ibérico ham, cheese plate, or shrimp cocktail if you need a snack.
