Print Restaurant & the Press Lounge

Owner & Operator

New York, NY, US

09/1/2009 — Present

Adam Block is the Owner and Operator of Print Restaurant and the Press Lounge. Both Print and the Press Lounge are situated within the Ink48 Hotel located at 48th St. & 11th Ave. in Manhattan. Print is on the ground floor adjacent to the Hotel Lobby and the Press Lounge is on the 16th Floor rooftop with unobstructed views of Manhattan and the Hudson River. All ingredients used at Print Restaurant are seasonally sourced; to remain true to this vision, Print staffs a full-time forager that tracks down product from local farms and regional vendors to showcase on the menu. Print does more than bring the farm to the restaurant, it brings the best fare available that day, always inspired by the season. The cuisine appeals to locavores, evoking original flavors honed from around the world. In it's first year of operation Print was rated 25 by Zagat and listed in the Michelin Guide. The Press Lounge, rated in 2010 as the "Best New Rooftop Bar" in New York City by New York Magazine, and named one of the top 22 Rooftop Bars in the World by ABC News.com, is open to the public seven days a week. It has quickly become a popular destination for cocktails as well as private events.
