Residing comfortably on the ground floor of the Doubletree NYC Financial District, Ei8htstone ensconces diners in its modern, minimalist decor as it kindles appetites into a roaring hunger with the scent of internationally inspired cuisine wafting from the kitchen. Gourmet plates of pork, chicken, and tuna take on exotic influences, resulting in Bengali-style chicken salad, Canadian-style blue-cheese burgers, and a French-inspired baguette sandwich with gruyere cheese. Classic American dishes hold their own with waffles and mac 'n' cheese. All of the menu items pair well with a selection of internationally sourced wines and local American beers, which bartenders sling from the sleek marble bar. Across from it, a sweeping, plush bench allows diners to get cozy as they sip their drinks or thumb-wrestle for final bites of dinner.
