Agency of Record, a new restaurant from Ryan McKenzie and the team at 27 Tales Hospitality, has opened in the historic Renwick Hotel (118 East 40th Street).

The space’s swanky design transports guests to old New York with rich mahogany tones, playful fringe, leather accents, dark wood and brass, and intimate mood lighting. The concept also includes a cozy private dining room complete with a vintage martini cart and private bartender for evening rent-outs.

Agency of Record's cocktail program features four sections (the names of which are inspired by classic advertising vernacular): Like Soda for a Baby (bright, awakening sippers), The Big Sell (designed to deliver that warm and fuzzy feeling), From a Far Away Land (sips with a tropical flair), and Everyone is Doing It (drinks designed for a party).

As for food, Consulting Chef Edward Carew puts an elevated twist on traditional bistro and bar fare. The menu includes shareable bites, hearty entrées, and sweet treats – many of which spotlight the use of the property’s wood-fired kitchen. Favorites include Duck Fat Fries, Grilled Prawns with Calabrian chili butter, Lobster Cocktail, Japanese Karaage-Style Fried Chicken, the French Onion Burger and the Veggie Shawarma.
