El Takoy,the latest concept from Luis Pous, who recently oversaw the global relaunch & expansion of the international success story Asia De Cuba, opens at Terrace on 7 at The Dominick Hotel. The El Takoy brand launched in South Miami last year. The New York City outpost will deliver a modern Hawaiian-inspired gastronomic experience set to transport diners to the shores of Hawaii with a destination-inspired design palette. El Takoy’s first foray out of Miami is perfectly suited for the Soho scene. At a time when most Manhattan establishments are testing the market in Miami, El Takoy is bringing the vibrancy of Miami to New York this summer.

Terrace on 7 at The Dominick Hotel is an indoor-outdoor restaurant and lounge, located adjacent to the hotel’s seasonal heated pool. The interior features an intimate bar to watch the cooking and cocktail making in action as well as a communal table for the main dining space to enjoy the sharing dishes and small plates. The interiors are decorated with natural materials inspired by island life with pops of tropical colours and signature El Takoy branding of hot pink and Polynesian sea green. The venue also offers an abundance of outdoor drinking and dining spaces accented by plush seating arrangements and ample greenery, including an offset lounge area with cabanas. The pool and cabanas, available for the exclusive use of hotel guests, at Terrace on 7 will open on Thursday, May 27th in time for Memorial Day Weekend, with El Takoy beginning food and beverage services.

Diners will delight over dishes including Lomi Tostada with tequila cured salmon, avocado, wasabi aioli & lime cream, and Tuna & caviar taquitos, shiso, rum & chilli mayo. The cocktail list is equally decadent and fun, including the signature “storm in a pineapple” served in a brass pineapple, with Plantation 3 star rum, Peychaud’s Aperitivo, Cinzano Rosso, passionfruit, orange, and pineapple chunks, or the spicy take on a classic espresso martini; cold brew mixed with Plantation Original Dark rum, coffee vodka, homemade pimento, cinnamon and clove syrups.
