Caterer to the stars and the premium hospitality group behind Sky Garden, rhubarb, has partnered with Dan Doherty (previously of Duck and Waffle) – award-winning chef, author and judge of new BBC One show Britain’s Best Home Cook, alongside Claudia Winkleman and Mary Berry – for its new all-day dining destination in New York’s Hudson Yards, opening March 2019.
The yet to be named restaurant, bar and terrace, will be located on the fifth floor of the newly developed 30 Hudson Yards on Manhattan’s West Side. Dan will be working with rhubarb in what will be the largest private development in the United States; which will also include restaurants from world renowned chefs Thomas Keller, José Andrés and Michael Lomonaco.
Serving brunch to lunch and dinner, Dan’s ‘East meets West’ menus are inspired by his love of travel and will include; Singapore chilli crab croquettes; Scallop, apple, kohlrabi & Chinese chilli oil; Beef fillet, chilli, daikon & soy cured egg; Asparagus, sticky shitake, brown butter hollandaise and Roasted & glazed herb fed chicken with chicken fat rice.
Weekend brunch will see Asian twists on classics from an English breakfast bibimbap with fried rice, egg, smoked bacon and spiced sausage; to Korean pancakes, and black sesame waffles with smoked miso ice cream.
Designed by Robert Angell Design International, the 5,800 sq.ft, 171 cover space takes inspiration from its Hudson Yards location and the original majestic New York Penn Station building, but with Eastern influences. The restaurant and bar will be light, bright and grand in form; with natural textured materials, opulent tones, teak timber screens and oriental features, seamlessly blending industrial West with authentic East.
In 2020, rhubarb will also open an events space at the top of 30 Hudson Yards, including an expansive observation deck – the highest manmade one in the western hemisphere.
UK meets US, East meets West, Doherty meets rhubarb for the most exciting culinary partnership and destination opening in 2019.
