Le Jardinier is a contemporary, light-filled oasis in the form of a restaurant and cocktail bar designed by prominent French architect and interior designer Joseph Dirand. Located in the newly designed Foster + Partners’ luxury tower, alongside Mies van der Rohe’s Seagram building, Le Jardinier is an homage to natural materials, local, seasonal produce, and a reprieve from Midtown Manhattan’s frantic atmosphere.
Minimalist interiors with maximalist materials is a duality Dirand has masterfully executed yet again. His signature green marble is found all throughout, accompanied with indoor plants and floor to ceiling windows for a tranquil and lush garden dining experience. Michelin awarded Culinary Director and former protégé of Joël Robuchon, Alain Verzeroli was inspired by the rhythm of nature when creating the restaurant’s refined and health-conscious menu.
