Michelin-chef John Fraser's restaurant, La Marchande, is announcing two exciting offerings. Located in New York's Financial District, the restaurant is now offering enticing happy hour deals and drinks in a chic French atmosphere. Guests can indulge in a carefully-crafted selection of cocktails, aperitifs, and premium wines - all perfect for unwinding after work. Daily from 5-6:30 PM, you can enjoy light bites, including signature dishes from La Marchande's raw bar, alongside your drinks, for a happier price. Meanwhile, La Marchande’s Seafood Tower is the epitome of luxury and taste. You will find an array of plump shrimp, the finest oysters from both the East and West Coasts, clams and sauces. The seafood tower isn't just a meal – it's a spectacle and a celebration. Reservations here
