InterContinental Times Square New York, rooftop beehiveHere's a fun tip for Broadway theatre-goers in New York. Todd English's Ça Va brasserie at the InterContinental Times Square is a popular choice for pre- or post-theatre eats, and those-in-the-know have been ordering up the secret honey menu since it launched this spring. The hotel has its very own rooftop garden and apiary, where thousands of bees produce honey that's later harvested for use in the restaurant (and in the bar's cocktails).

The "Bee Hungry" dinner menu is available upon request after 7:30 p.m. Sample dishes include a lovely salad with herbs, edible flowers, and a honey vinaigrette; honey-glazed duck confit with potatoes and honey-infused celery root purée; and honey-almond madeleines dipped in dark chocolate.

Fun fact: InterContinental Hotels has a partnership with Burts Bees, and the chain's chefs have been tapped to come up with “delicious, bee-pollinated recipes."
