Little Italy's Carte Hotel Is A Unique Neighborhood Stay

Kai Oliver-Kurtin | October 21, 2019 | Lifestyle


Nods to Little Italy’s storied past as a tuna fishing capital can be seen throughout Carté Hotel, the vibrant neighborhood’s newest luxury haunt. With ocean-hued decor, coastal artwork and carpets resembling fishing nets, Carté will reel in guests with its sweeping bay views. “Overnight guests aren’t the only ones who can enjoy the hotel’s unique offerings,” says Henri Birmele, general manager. “Locals can stop in to experience Carté’s diverse coastal-inspired culinary program, and local and regional wines and spirits from Southern California, Northern Mexico and Italy, and stay to catch the sunset on the rooftop lounge.” Foodies will love the hotel’s three on-site dining options: Flagship restaurant Watercolors serves fresh local seafood, while the 16th-floor rooftop lounge, Above Ash Social, has craft cocktails, light bites and Instagram-worthy views. Oenophiles should head to Fonte di Vino, the hotel’s wine bar, which also offers specialty spirit tastings, plus cheese and charcuterie pairings. Sounds like a locals paradise to us. 401 W.
