Where do chefs go and, more importantly, where do they love to eat? In Resy Regulars, we ask Resy chefs to tell us where they’re regulars.

In this edition, we’re chatting with Markus Glocker, chef-owner of Koloman where he puts modern twists on French and Austrian classics at the Ace Hotel in NoMad. Before opening Koloman in early 2022, he was a co-owner of the now-closed Bâtard, where he earned a Michelin star, and before that, he worked in fine-dining kitchens around the world, including Gordon Ramsay at The London, Charlie Trotter’s in Chicago, and renowned restaurants in Austria, Berlin, and Munich. As a kid, Glocker helped out at his family’s hotel in the small Austrian town of Linz.

Glocker has lived in New York since 2006, when he moved to open Gordon Ramsay at the London, and ever since he’s fallen in love with late-night, post-shift dining in the city. His favorites feature expertly executed European comfort foods, casual vibes, and friendly service that leaves you feeling well taken care of.

While you can easily dial up or down the elegance of a dish or decor, service is the hardest part, he says. It comes down to finding the right staff with nuances of “charisma and character” that, without being intimidating or overbearing, leaves the guest feeling taken care of. “There’s a very, very fine line.” And since his midnight dinners, where the staff intuitively knew to pitch Glocker and his late-night crew a quick drink and a quick bite, he’s added a few more spots to his list of favorites.

Here are a few of his favorite spots, in his own words.
