After several months of delays, The Reserve will finally open tomorrow, part of a multimillion-dollar renovation to the lobby of Financial District hotel The Langham. For now, the champagne lounge will serve continental breakfast, lunch, and drinks (including bubbly, of course), but dinner will be added later in November. The menu, designed by executive chef Mark Sapienza, is meant to complement the wine list with "nibbles" and "light entrees." Sapienza previously described the menu as New American, possibly featuring dishes like foraged mushroom quiche, grilled shrimp tacos, and pastries made in-house. The Reserve takes its name from the original occupant of the building, the Federal Reserve Bank, which opened in 1922. The hotel also features two other dining options: BOND, which focuses on small plates and cocktails served to the booming sounds of deejays, and Café Fleuri, probably best known for its weekly all-you-can-eat chocolate buffet.
