Michelin-starred chef Daniel Boulud has officially opened the doors to Le Pavillon at the new One Vanderbilt Avenue, located at the corner of Vanderbilt Avenue and East 42nd Street.
The 11,000-square-foot dining oasis can accommodate up to 120 guests and bar seating for 46. With interior design led by Isay Weinfeld alongside architecture firm KPF, the restaurant features a winding garden path, seamlessly blending nature and architecture. Suspended above the bar, American artist Andy Paiko has created a custom, hand blown glass chandelier, highlighting breathtaking views of Grand Central Terminal and the Chrysler building.
Boulud, whose previous restaurants include Daniel and Bar Boulud, has created a menu with fresh, healthy, locally sourced ingredients which will rotate based on the bounty of the market and highlight many local vegetables along with New England seafood.
The restaurant’s wine team has assembled a list of about 650 selections featuring deep verticals from the classic regions of France, United States and beyond. Additionally, there is a broad selection of wines by the glass. Meanwhile, head bartender Samy Berdai has designed a robust cocktail program featuring all the classic libations of New York, with a curated list of house cocktails designed to change seasonally.
