Pata Negra at the Plaza's Caudalie Spa
by Mollie Chen
Aside from exclusive treatments and a gorgeous tiled hammam, the most compelling reason to go to the Plaza's brand-new Caudalie Spa is its decadent café menu. They take a liberal view of spa cuisine, focusing on lush, full-fat cheeses and shaved truffles rather than rabbit-like salads and insipid broths. What better way to follow up a honey-and-wine wrap than with a plate of jamon de pata negra and quince paste? They've also got France's famed Poilane bread to go with that earthy foie gras terrine and, in a nod to the Big Apple, a classic New York bagel with smoked salmon and cream cheese.
