Today we will present you a new luxury restaurant in New York.
Created by Michelin-starred Chef Alain Verzeroli, Shun reflects his experiences cooking in both Japan and France. The menu marries French-based cuisine and technique with Japanese ingredients and aesthetics to create a contemporary dining experience distinct to NYC.
As guests ascend the marble staircase leading into the Shun luxury dining room, all elements from the fine cuisine, to the style of service, the tableware, and the minimalist yet luxurious interior design by Architect Joseph Dirand, are meant to work in harmony and transport you from the bustling streets of Midtown Manhattan below.
For the interiors, Dirand took his cues from the menu: Chairs and sofas are upholstered in rich green velvet, while geometric black lacquer tables bring to mind elements of classical Japanese design. The modern dining room was also designed with an open kitchen, which, as Dirand notes, only serves to enhance the overall culinary experience.
Bar Shun, a separate space next to the luxury restaurant, embodies an Art Deco-inspired respite from the hustle and bustle of Midtown, featuring tall mirrors, silver accents, and softly rounded corners.
For both the restaurant and bar, Dirand sought to create a new classic, which he describes as “an oasis in the middle of an urban environment.” And Shun is indeed just that—a welcome escape from the urban jungle and a bona fide culinary journey all rolled into one.
