MICHELIN-STAR CHEF OPENS THE HAMILTON IN NEW HAVEN
BOUTIQUE ACCOMMODATION FEATURES DINING BY MICHELIN-STAR CHEF
The city of New Haven in Connecticut, stomping grounds of the prestigious Yale University, is now also home to its first high-end boutique hotel, The Blake, one of the few in New England.
The Blake, a fusion of casual elegance and cosmopolitan flair, thanks to London-based Alexander Waterworth Interiors and Maryland-based HVS Design, is named after the first female graduate from Yale, Alice Blake.
Each one of its 108 rooms offers classic design elements such as upholstered headboards, mahogany furnishings and velvet-covered seating, with contemporary flourishes including crisp white walls, spacious closets and full kitchenettes for the longer-term guest.
The restaurant, Hamilton Park, and rooftop bar (debuting in the spring) are run by Michelin-starred chef Matt Lambert, of New York City’s acclaimed Musket Room. The restaurant’s menu is focused around its wood-fired oven and the array of New England produce that’s available.
Acclaimed mixologist Eben Freeman (formerly of wd~50 in NYC) created the cocktail program.
