425 Park AvenueAt least five high end eateries in tall towers will feature expansive restaurants opening within the next two years.  At 432 Park Avenue, the tallest residential building in the country currently, the 12th floor restaurant headed by chef Shaun Hergatt, formerly of Juni and restaurateur Scott Sozmen, formerly of Per Se, will be private to residents only. The 8500 square foot space will feature a pair of 22-foot-tall chandeliers and a 5,000 square foot terrace for diners.

Down the street at 425 Park Avenue, chefs Daniel Humm and Will Guidara of 11 Madison Park and NoMad are partnering to open a 14,000 square foot bi-level dining venue in the 47 story office tower. Developer David Levinson has described it as “a Four Seasons on steroids for the 21st Century.”

The recently vacated Four Seasons Restaurant space at 375 Park Avenue will feature The Grill Room run by restaurateurs Mario Carbone and Rich Torrisi and their business partner, Jeff Zalaznick. The concept honors both the old and new.

In the 100 East 53rd Street, chef Joel Robuchon, will open an eatery in his name on the second level of the 63 story skyscraper.  On the ground floor will be a bakery and gourmet market. The Michelin-starred chef has yet to release his menu but said it will be reflective of his other eateries around the globe.

DaDong, based in Beijing and known for its Peking Duck, will open at 1095 Sixth Avenue. The restaurant will span 13,000 square feet, with a seating capacity for 400 diners. But, that’s not all, a second floor features 4,000 square feet of outdoor garden space and two additional dining rooms.

Bon Appetit!
