At the restaurant, the lighting concept is derived from the futuristic nostalgia of its interior design. A balance of light comes from floor and ceiling and changes throughout the night. Moreover, alcove spaces provide a more intimate atmosphere for diners.
A long white tunnel transports A-listers and well-heeled waitlisters to midtown’s most buzzed-about scene in years. With honeycomb patterned walls, cavernous booths and white glass bar, the lighting design coupled with design-guru Marc Newsom’ vision evokes futurism and nostalgia at once. The focal point is an elevated trapezoidal cutout behind which not-so-private parties unfold.
