The times, they are a’changing. Beloved power-lunching spot, The Four Seasons Restaurant, is on track to re-open next year during the holiday season at its new location on 280 Park Avenue. But the owners, Julian Niccolini and Alex von Bidder, have let slip that the new location is not going to be anything like the first.
“There is no relationship between the old and the new restaurant. The only thing we are carrying over is the name — and the sign,” Niccolini told the Post.
The plans were just approved for the new restaurant last week, and the new space will feature custom 1950s furniture, crystal and gold curtains, 18-foot ceilings, a 150-seat restaurant and a bar that is reached via six staircases. There will also be a large private dining room with space for 100 people, and a smaller one with space for 20-30 people.
And yes, in addition to planning the space, the founders are also planning a big party to celebrate the re-opening. Mark your calendars for the holiday season next year. [NYP]
