OMG Foodie Recommends:
A Passion for Farm to Table Dining
Starting a restaurant in the westward side of Hell’s Kitchen may be risky business due to the lack of daily foot traffic, but where most people saw risk, acclaimed restaurateur Adam Block saw an opportunity to create a restaurant focused around his passion of farm to table dining. Utilizing the freshest ingredients the region has to offer, “Print” embodies his vision and philosophy of what a great restaurant should be.

Inside Print: Located adjacent to Ink48 hotel with a separate street entrance on the corner of 11th ave and 48th st, Print’s name pays homage to the building’s history as a former printing factory. However, make no mistake, the restaurant does not have a literal-themed interior, but rather a beautiful design by famed architect David Rockwell. Every aspect of the decor, from the tables to the plating to the back wall and artwork, matches the direction and philosophy of the food being locally sourced, while exhibiting warmth. “It just feels right,” says Adam Block, “it compliments the food”.

The Menu: Print is the first New York restaurant to have a full-time forager on staff and has helped the restaurant “stay true to the concept” of farm to table dining, as Adam Block would say. This helps the restaurant source the freshest ingredients while providing exposure for farmers that have yet to be discovered. This is part of the reason why the product you find at Print is of the highest quality while staying true to their concept.
Chef Charles Rodriquez is a purist; someone who focuses on his craft and is inspired by his beginnings in the Dominican Republic, where he understood regional cuisine since childhood. This enabled a perfect fit between Chef Rodriquez and the philosophy of Print. As such, the menu is always changing. Whichever ingredients are in season and fits the standards set at Print, you’ll find it on the menu.

It’s Worth the Trip: If you’re a localvore or someone who just appreciates great food, make the trek to 11th avenue and dine at Print! There you’ll find the truest execution of farm to table dining while enjoying top-notch hospitality. Adam Block has been in the restaurant business since he was 16, and every itch of detail of the restaurant reflects that rich experience.
To have the full experience, visit the Press Lounge, a rooftop bar located in the hotel, where you’ll find beautiful views of the Hudson River and midtown skyline.
If you’re afraid of heights, go to the intimate dens next to the front of the restaurant, where you and your guest can enjoy an exquisite cocktail. Just like the menu at the restaurant, the ingredients used in your cocktails are fresh and locally sourced.
