The Four Seasons Restaurant

OPENED66 DAYS AGO

The Four Seasons Restaurant returns at a new Midtown location.

Known as the pioneers of seasonal fine dining in New York (back in 1959), the legendary Four Seasons Restaurant has brought in a new team of chefs for its comeback.

The Four Seasons Restaurant - Seabass

The Spot:

Located just a few blocks away from its original home in Midtown’s Seagram Building, the new space is fitted with a separate bar room, where a sunken bar is wrapped by a gold leaf (what else?). After your welcome drinks, a passageway takes you through to the large dining room, complete with an Italian terrazzo floor, leather banquettes and walnut tables, while the upstairs area is reserved for private dining.

The Four Seasons Restaurant - Bass and Scallop Crudo

The Food:

The Four Seasons Restaurant has appointed Diego Garcia (formerly of Le Bernardin and Gloria) as the new executive chef, who introduces a new menu with updated offerings, yet seasonal ingredients continue to shine through. To start, seafood dishes pack the menu, including fluke crudo with watermelon radish, grilled langostine with wakame butter, and little neck clams, as well as vegetable crudité with chickpea hummus, which we assure you, is a class above anything you snack on at home. Mains are often made for sharing, with options such as roasted whole turbot with summer vegetables; cote de boeuf béarnaise; and duck with cherry sauce (a Four Seasons specialty).

The Four Seasons Restaurant - Pavlova

If you want to know what Obama indulged in for dessert, stay for chef Bill Yosses’ pastry program (former White House executive pastry chef). All beautifully presented, the line-up includes panna cotta with caramelized figs, peaches and cream tart with lemon verbena sauce, and a pistachio puff with apricot sorbet.

The Four Seasons Restaurant - Truffle Roasted Organic Chicken

The Drinks:

Acclaimed cocktail consultant Mark Drew (of L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon) reimagines the classics, offering spritz infused with apricot shrub, an apple-focused martini or a blood orange Collins.

The Four Seasons Restaurant - Spritz

The Damage:

Save this one for payday. Appetizers vary between $25 and $65; main courses are around $45-$75.

In a Nutshell:

The Four Seasons Restaurant is one of New York’s most famous dining establishments, attracting the likes of Martha Stewart and John F. Kennedy in its day. While it’s no longer residing in its iconic setting, the new space is likely to draw in an upscale crowd in need of a weekday power lunch.
