Award-winning chef, Michelin-starred restaurateur, hotelier and author, Charlie Palmer is renowned for his farm-fresh Progressive American cuisine. Spearheading The Knickerbocker’s entire culinary program, he has created the hotel’s signature Honest American Cuisine inspired by the same principles. With over three decades of experience, he is regarded as one of the first adapters of the farm over factory food philosophy, an approach that has earned the success of his hospitality group empire which currently includes restaurants, boutique hotels, and food-forward wine shops throughout the U.S.
Located just steps from The Knickerbocker is Palmer’s flagship restaurant, the Michelin-starred Aureole, one of the most coveted dining establishments in New York City. Hotel guests enjoy priority access and preferential treatment at this legendary venue which just celebrated 25 illustrious years.
