Luxury hotel residences are already appealing given their superior level of service. Layer in delectable food by all-star chefs and the combination is irresistible. The following world-class hotels offer residential condominiums, where homeowners will enjoy the food of famed restaurants and equally renowned chefs on their own properties.
Here’s a look at five top choices:
The Bazaar by José Andrés, Miami
SLS Hotel & Residences Brickell
The SLS condominiums offers up one of the most striking and memorable facades in all of Miami. With lavish swimming pool facilities, a ballroom, business center, movie theater and spa, SLS definitely takes care of its residences. Which is why award-winning chef José Andrés has his latin-loving Bazaar there—a modern restaurant for diners with discerning palates.
Manzanita by Tracie Des Jardins, Lake Tahoe
The Ritz-Carlton Residences Lake Tahoe
California food celebrity Tracie Des Jardins made a name for herself in San Francisco with restaurants in the iconic Ferry Building, the upscale Hayes Valley neighborhood in San Francisco, and even AT&T Park—home to the San Francisco Giants. As a California native with a maternal Mexican heritage and a French father, Tracie has a unique take on modern fine dining—an ethos that fits perfectly with the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Condominiums and Lake Tahoe’s futuristic take on the luxury log cabin.
WP24 by Wolfgang Puck, Los Angeles
The Ritz-Carlton Residences LA Live
Wolfgang Puck is a household name thanks to his ingenious take on Asian cuisine for the new world. For a reputation as solid as his, only the best will do. In this case, the best is twenty-four stories above Los Angeles, nestled in the sleek and stunning Ritz-Carlton condos, overlooking the breath-taking L.A. skyline. Simply fabulous.
Scarpetta by Scott Conant, Los Angeles
Montage Residences Beverly Hills
The very words “Beverley Hills” immediately conjure up an image of unsurpassed luxury and comfort. The ultra-grand Montage Condominium Residences offers a spa, roof-top pool, gardens, high-end stores and, yes: Scarpetta—the brainchild of TV chef and culinary wizard, Scott Conant. No wonder this beautiful restaurant was named one of the best in America by Esquire magazine.
Per Se by Thomas Keller, New York
The Residences at Mandarin Oriental
Per Se, located at the base of the Mandarin Oriental, is widely regarded as the best restaurant not only in New York City, but in America. It is a favorite with celebrities and tastemakers around the globe.
