About Us

Ai Fiori, translated to ‘Among the Flowers’ in Italian, showcases the modern interpretations of French and Italian Riviera cuisine.
The menu highlights signature hand-made pastas, emphasizes seasonal ingredients, and features traditional regional dishes inspired by land and sea.


Ai Fiori is located on the Second Floor of the Langham Hotel on Fifth Ave. Ai Fiori has a Grand Award-winning wine list, which boasts over 1000 selections. In addition to the main dining room, Bar Fiori and its lounge area offer guests the opportunity to experience Ai Fiori in a more casual environment, whether to enjoy a craft cocktail and snack or a full meal. Ai Fiori plays host to elegant private events and offers many different attractive setups to consider based on the size of the party and occasion. We are dedicated to making each business, social, or personal event memorable and suited to your needs. Ai Fiori received three stars from The New York Times and was also included in Esquire Magazine’s 2011 List of Best New Restaurants in America. Additionally, New York Post critic Steve Cuozzo labeled the signature dish Astice the “greatest dish in the world.” Ai Fiori also ranks among Zagat’s Best Italian in NYC, and the Forbes Travel Guide awarded it four stars.
