Don’t know where to eat in New York? Try the designer starred one
It’s called Loring Place and is the new space by Dan Kluger, located in a nineteenth-century building in the heart of Greenwich Village
Choosing where to eat in New York can take hours of research navigating through guides, friends’ tips, and online reviews. But among the several culinary experiences provided by New York restaurants, you cannot miss Loring Place, the new designer starred restaurant.
It is located in an old building from 1848, in the heart of Greenwich Village, and the starred chef Dan Kluger (from ABC Kitchen and ABC Cocina) chose to entrust architect Craig Shilito of the Brooklyn-based firm Cycle Architecture+Planning with the project of his first restaurant.
The restoration of original elements, such as typical wooden beams and exposed tiles in the interiors - on two floors - create a warm and intimate setting, divided into separated spaces, with a lounge area and two private rooms.
Raw elements, the warm tones of the oak floor, and the recycled pine tables, blend with a modern look and details with vibrant colours, like the orange window frames standing out against the inner room’s walls in white tiles.
Works of contemporary art, accurately chosen by The Studio-One kings Lane, hang on the walls, while the light grey felt chairs and the Jono Pandolfi custom-made ceramic tableware increase the texture and personality of the place.
At the centre of the restaurant that promises to be soon one of the trendiest in New York, a tree sculpture in aluminium, product of the collaboration between Kruger and Stillitio, rises from the ground floor to the next one up, with branches of LED lights illuminating the rooms and contrasting with the dark tones of the cherry wood panels on the ceiling and the walls.
The farm-to-table menu of vegetables and seasonal dishes offers a selection of appetisers and tastings with new and creative combinations composed by the chef in the restaurant’s semi-open kitchen.
