The Altamarea Group, home to NYC staples Marea and Ai Fiori, have opened this contemporary Asian restaurant. The innovative concept creates an immersive dining experience by combining cuisine inspired by traditional Chinese, Japanese, Singaporean and Thai cooking with avant-garde art scattered throughout the 30,000-square-foot space.
The restaurant sits - in a dramatic three-story space - above MoMa’s extended Midtown wing, and partners with Friedrich Petzel Gallery to display a rotating selection of fine art. Expect to find a exotic menu categorized by temperature and preparation: cold, hot, steamed, grilled, clay pot and wok - overseen by world-renowned Singaporean chef, Akmal Anuar (3 Fils, Dubai).
Hand-sliced, dry-aged, beef carpaccio with an aji-panca, peppercorn vinaigrette, a sustainable caviar-topped Toro tartare; truffle egg custard with foie gras and littleneck clams; steamed Turbot with ginger and garlic oil; Hainanese Chicken soaked in Shaoxing wine and Sambal skate wrapped in bamboo leaf and served with a house made cincalok sauce.
