MMM! This place is gorgeous, and it is closing at the end of July this year, 2016. Another landlord-tenant dispute, and The Four Seasons Restaurant on 52nd St. here in New York City has decided to move on…BOOM!
After 27 years of living here I have finally made it to the Pool Room for lunch. Yes, we know that the Grill Room is THE place for lunch here with all of the power brokers and business folks doing deals over duck soup and dover sole, but we want to lunch with the revelers and gawkers in the Pool Room who are here to admire the magnificent space designed by Philip Johnson and decorated by Mies van der Rohe, have photos taken by the pool, chit-chat with the ancient staff members, suck down champagne, slurp down Sancerre whites, and sample whatever delectable items that happen to be on the menu today. We do all of the above and gobble foie gras, artichoke and burrata salad, rabbit, dover sole, a cheese plate, and a Grand Marnier souffle…everything arrives efficiently with smooth simplicity AND everything tastes great. . .tons of flavor in each and every dish that we lunch on. . .we are surprised because we read that things aren’t “what they used to be” here, but all is good enough for us peasants–absolutely no complaints at all.
We love lunching at The Four Seasons Restaurant here in New York City. . .get on over here and enjoy this space, these people, and this food before it all closes up at the end of July. . .you will love it, too–I gar-ron-taaaay!!
