The National located in the Benjamin hotel in Midtown East is home to chef Geoffrey Zakarian, The Next Iron Chef winner. Zakarian can take a humble parsnip and, by matching it with roasted pear and adding it to a creamy risotto, turn that modest vegetable into something truly extraordinary. Try the pistachio cake with apricot sorbet, vanilla mascarpone and browned butter, one of New York’s great sweets.
