Wed 12th Apr 2017 - D&D London to open venue in ‘Thomas Keller space’ in New York
D&D London to open venue in ‘Thomas Keller space’ in New York: D&D London is to bring a new chef-driven restaurant concept to Hudson Yards, the Manhattan neighbourhood spanning 28 acres on New York’s West Side. Slated to open in autumn of 2018, D&D’s yet to-be-named modern brasserie concept will join the collection of more than a dozen restaurants curated by renowned chef Thomas Keller and Related Urban president and chief executive and restaurateur Kenneth A Himmel. The full Hudson Yards restaurant collection, which also includes concepts from chefs José Andrés, Costas Spiliadis and Thomas Keller, will be housed primarily in the one million square foot Shops & Restaurants at Hudson Yards, anchored by Neiman Marcus and designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects. D&D’s new 11,000 square foot restaurant on the fourth floor will serve a menu of modern brasserie cuisine and feature a distinctly New York ambience with dramatic views of Thomas Heatherwick’s vessel, the public square and gardens and the Hudson River. Chairman and chief executive of D&D Des Gunewardena said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be opening a restaurant in what is widely considered to be the most exciting and ambitious development in New York. It has long been a desire of ours to bring a new flagship restaurant to this amazing city. We spent a lot of time considering where to open and believe that the dynamism and creativity of Hudson Yards makes it the ideal location for us. In my view, there is no other city besides London that can match the energy, vibrancy and diversity of the New York dining scene, and we are all incredibly excited to launch a new concept in what we think will become the new heart of Manhattan.” Himmel said: “Des and D&D have created some of the most exciting and inventive dining concepts in the UK. We are very excited for D&D London to bring their unique perspective to Hudson Yards, the new epicentre of New York dining. Their new concept will be the perfect addition to Manhattan’s newest neighbourhood, and offer an exciting new experience for Hudson Yards’ residents, employees and visitors alike.” D&D’s new home, Hudson Yards, developed by Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group is the largest private real estate development in the nation’s history. The new neighbourhood will be home to more than 100 shops and restaurants – including New York City’s first Neiman Marcus – dozens of the world’s corporate business leaders, state-of-art modern residences, a cultural space, 14-acres of public open space, a new 750-seat public school and a 200-room Equinox-branded luxury hotel – all offering unparallelled amenities for residents, employees and guests.
