Ever since the Grill restaurant opened in the former Four Seasons restaurant space, socialites and foodies alike have been snapping endless Instagram pictures of their food, cherry flambé, and towers of leeks. Well get ready for twice as many posts, because the neighboring restaurant, The Pool, now has an opening date of July 19th, according to the New York Times.
Per the Times, the space will look extremely familiar to former patrons of the restaurant. The four trees surrounding the pool are now gone and there’s an Alexander Calder mobile hanging from the ceiling, but otherwise the decor is about the same. There’s also a new bar in the space called the Pool Lounge.
The menu in the Pool restaurant is almost 100 percent seafood. Think raw bar with king crab and oysters, calamari a la plancha, a whole fish of the day, and some more unusual items like poached Hawaiian walu with fennel sauce. All of the waiters will wear outfits designed by Tom Ford.
So basically, it will be another fancy, midtown seafood restaurant with some extra special touches. We can’t wait. [NYT]
