When you walk inside TAK Room, which is from Thomas Keller (the chef behind places like Per Se and The French Laundry), it sort of feels like you’re entering a private club that’s been around for a few decades. So it makes sense that they serve the type of food you might have found on a (nice) cruise ship in the 1950s - it’s just all priced more like it’s from 2036. You’ll find things like oysters rockefeller and lobster thermidor, the latter of which is $85 (most other entrees are also in the over-$60 range). Is it worth it? Depends how many multiples of $85 you spend in a given day, but for most people, definitely not. That said, the service is friendly, the food isn’t bad, and we like free crudites you get at the beginning of your meal.
