‘Wellness’ Facade Aside, the Equinox Hotel Restaurant Serves Destination-Worthy Fare

Even as the weather turns cooler, outside is the ideal setting for a meal. Try kicking things off with a ramekin of razor clams. Chef Kyle Knall (Maysville) tames the brine with a pungent pickled carrot and cilantro broth. As the wind picks up, a staffer swings by with blankets to counteract the cold. This is the time to warm up with roasted oysters. Knall gently smokes the bivalves in their shells, infusing them with the sweet scent of hay. A touch of shallot mignonette tames the brine.

Q&A With Chef, Kyle Knall

Following in his brother’s footsteps, chef Kyle Knall started working at a restaurant in his native Birmingham, Alabama as a high schooler. He then went on to a position at Chez Fonfon with local culinary icon Frank Stitt (becoming sous chef at age 20) before moving to New York for a job at Gramercy Tavern. In 2013, he opened his own homage to Southern fare, Maysville, in the Flatiron District. Now, the Southern chef is at the helm of Electric Lemon at the Equinox Hotel.
