The sharp Asia- and California-inspired cooking in this sleek restaurant in the St. Regis hotel has garnered dizzyingly swooning
reviews since opening night. While dining-room entrées fetch as much as $39, the small-plates menu served at the bar in the
spacious lobby lets you try Ame’s inventive flavors with sprightly dishes like fried rock shrimp, Thai-spiced pork riblets
with mint and cabbage salad, and hamachi crudo, drizzled with salt, olive oil, and Meyer lemon—each about half of the price
of an entrée. You can also order whatever you like off the restaurant menu.
