Intersect By Lexus, a massive three-story space, aims to become a "dynamic lifestyle hub", featuring a first-floor cafe, public gallery, and retail area, a second-floor restaurant, cocktail bar, and lounge, and a third-floor private gallery and exclusive event venue.
With a full-service fine-dining restaurant, table seating for 42, a private dining area for 12, and an eight-seat chef’s counter it offers an up-close look into the open kitchen.
Every four months, the restaurant will feature a new menu created by a guest chef-in-residence brought in from different parts of the world. The first is Gregory Marchand of the acclaimed Frenchie restaurants in Paris and London, whose offerings include a salt-crusted pork and a foie gras terrine made with pastrami. Two other chefs have already been selected to follow in Marchard’s footsteps, but they won’t be named until a later date.
The entire food and beverage program is being overseen by renowned restaurateur Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group, which also runs acclaimed restaurants at several of the city’s most beloved art institutions, including the Museum of Modern Art and Whitney Museum of American Art.
