About Elevate Restaurant & Lounge
At Elevate Restaurant & Lounge, located in the Wyndham Hotel Downtown, chefs Leo Lai and Spencer Truong draw from their own upbringings, blending Japanese and American flavors to create an upscale medley of seafood, sushi, and hearty meats. Before Elevate, the pair worked separately at renowned restaurants: Lai was executive sushi chef at Mizu, and Truong honed his skills under James Beard Award–winning chef Patrick Connolly at Bobo in the West Village.
The duo’s dishes have garnered a devoted following—popular items include crawfish tempura served with Cajun aioli and pan-roasted free-range chicken in teriyaki jus. The kitchen rethinks classics such as the cuban sandwich, made here with Japanese ingredients including pork belly, housemade pickles, and wasabi mayo. After sampling the fare from the sushi bar, raw bar, and kitchen, guests can transition to overstuffed leather booths in the lounge to enjoy the house’s signature cocktails.
