The Reserve Cut – Fine Dining
New York City
With six distinct epicurean dining spaces, patrons never get bored at Wall Street’s Reserve Cut.
In the former Setai, at 40 Broad Street, RC is located within the financial district of Lower Manhattan. RC stands out with a Michelin-starred Chef – Richard Farnabe, who joined founder- Albert Allaham with the passion for creating the best kosher restaurant in NYC.
Our design of the space has earned accolades, a Zagat 4.5 rating for Decor, which has catapulted its must-see status.
The idea of creating a variety of intimate mini-dining parties within the 12,000sf space really paid off.
Guests enter a private vestibule off the private elevators into this other-worldly columnar grand hall, which delivers you to a curved backdrop enveloping the maître-d station. From there, you encounter a 30-foot-long walnut bar punctuated with custom pendant light fixtures, which echo the signature lighting throughout the space.
A nearby banquet room seats 40 guests strategically located off the entry and bar. Lunch is served within a curated art-filled room, also book-ending the bar with easy access.
Our episodic journey unfolds in a narrow space that contains a candle-lit zero-edge reflective pool, which is flanked by two floor-to-ceiling glass wine towers.
A secret passage leads to an intimate communal wine-pairing room for 12 lucky guests. Continuing back past the water feature, the main dining space awaits, with a 24-foot-high latticed cube enlivened with slender pendant fixtures that boldly accentuate the dramatic height of the space. This is my personal favourite, as the lattice framework cocoons patrons within peek-a-boo, see to be seen, spatial culmination within the plan.
At the end of the main dining cube is an exhibition kitchen with a chef’s table and surrounding banquettes, perfect for 6-8 guests, featuring a golden etched-glass façade allowing diners to experience the animated kitchen activity beyond.
