Major Food Group has unveiled its restoration of the Grill Room at the former Four Seasons Restaurant, now to be known as The Grill.
It’s the first stage of a complete renewal of the modernist eatery inside the landmark Seagram Building.
The Grill will seamlessly bring together art, food, people, and pleasure the way New York’s legendary mid-century midtown restaurants once did.
“This is the greatest restaurant space of all time, and we’re doing everything we can to honour that,” says Major Food Group partner Jeff Zalaznick.
“It’s the opportunity of a lifetime for us as restaurateurs, and it’s explosively exciting for us as New Yorkers.”
While the room is luxurious, The Grill will feel as warm and welcoming as all of Major Food Group’s restaurants, more fun than formal.
Delivered by captains in Tom Ford tuxedos designed especially for the restaurant, The Grill’s carefully conceived food will match its surroundings.
Chef and partner Mario Carbone’s elegant renditions of chophouse classics will conjure decades of stylish Manhattan dining.
Carbone’s larger-than-life food, served on tableware inspired by JFK-era White House place settings, reimagines mid-century New York cuisine.
“We’re proud to say this menu’s a throwback.
“It reflects hours and hours of research on decades of Manhattan dining culture,” Carbone said.
“Some are familiar and some are forgotten.
“But as we do in all of our restaurants, we’re making them our own.”
