THE POLO BAR
5 EAST 55TH STREET AT FIFTH AVENUE

An equestrian’s dream come true: Ralph Lauren’s Polo Bar has officially opened its doors. RL’s latest venture has all the details covered, down to the player-engraved tumblers and mallet-shaped swizzle sticks. Amidst the pony paraphernalia and rich leather banquettes, The Polo Bar’s classic dishes shine - we’re talking corned beef and a burger well worth the wait for the table. Hot tip: go for the Prohibition Spice for a pre-dinner sipper, house crab cakes or wedge salad to start, brown butter New York strip as the main attraction, and the Polo Bar brownie to top it all off. Contact your Attaché for reservations.
