The Reserve, the dining room in the Ambassador Hotel, had a “soft opening” over the weekend. The veteran server Giovanni Luongo was working the room: “No one knew the place was open, really, but I had notified some of my regular customers to come in. Everyone was raving about the food.”

No, no, no…not the original Ambassador Hotel at 36th and Broadway (which hasn’t had a restaurant in decades), but the sleek, beautifully designed new Ambassador Hotel at 1111 Grand. On Monday morning, the Reserve opened for breakfast at 6 a.m.
