Casual café by day and dramatic event space by night, Astra is one of New York City’s leading event venues. Located in midtown Manhattan on the 14th floor of the Decoration and Design (“D&D”) Building, Astra is a unique concept providing both on-site and full-service catering that combines serene elegance and urban sophistication with world-class cuisine. Just imagine a Charlie Palmer-designed menu and event either overlooking the bustling midtown city streets, or in the comfort of your own home. A personalized wine program and professional service staff are also available to help make any celebration complete. Astra’s expertise in event planning will enhance all corporate events and private parties. Unsurpassed personal attention is the hallmark of the dedicated staff that provides the same attention to details and flair that have made Palmer’s restaurants world-renowned. CUISINE: In response to incredible demand, Charlie Palmer and Aureole began providing off-premise catering in patrons’ homes. Progressive American menus, designed under the watchful eye of Palmer and his well-trained staff, are accessible to anyone seeking quality entertaining at home or in the lovely venue itself. Astra has been praised for the same bold flavors and stunning presentations that make Aureole one of the leading restaurants in New York.
