Enjoy dinner and drinks with a view. Hotel Hendricks has it all – with the new and improved Isla & Co and Daintree Rooftop bar, it is an obvious NYC hot spot.
Isla at Hotel Hendricks in Midtown has morphed into Isla & Co, which has begun to expand to many different locations in the U.S. The restaurant serves amazing food, coffee, and a wide selection of alcohol.
Isla & Co first opened in Williamsburg this past spring, and with its beaming success, this made it clear there was a demand for Australian style all-day brassiere. Barry Dry and Tom Rowse, owners of the restaurant, decided to expand it to Fairfield in Connecticut. They also plan on opening locations in West Palm Beach South Beach, Dallas, Atlanta, and Dallas this year.
The upgraded version at Hotel Hendricks’ restaurant will leave you satisfied. David Taylor, executive chef, has a wealth of experience in restaurant and hotel kitchens in San Francisco and New Orleans, Prague, Tokyo, and New Orleans. Taylor has paved the way for the cuisine at Isla and will do the same for Isla & Co’s location at Hotel Hendricks. His aim is to show innovative versions of brasserie favorites through a unique lens based on two decades of international experience in the culinary world.
Isla & Co.’s Corporate Executive Chef Matt Foley who began cooking under Michelin-starred chef David LeFevre at Manhattan Beach Post before joining Michael White’s team as the Sous Chef at the two Michelin-starred Marea. Matt was previously the Corporate Chef at DIG, a fast casual restaurant group, which grew it from 8 to 32 locations.
The restaurant is open from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Brunch is served until 4 p.m. and has an array of delicious options like brioche french toast, smoked salmon benedict, griddled banana bread, an Isla & Co. burger, and pulled pork sandwich with cabbage slaw, pickled onion served with fries and more.

Not only is Isla & Co. a fantastic addition, but Hotel Hendricks also has Daintree located on the top floor of the hotel.
