Trendy Parisian Lounge Buddha-Bar Finally Opens NYC Outpost

Joining other prominent cities like Dubai, London, & Prague, NYC now has its very own world-famous Buddha-Bar location…and it’s about time!

After more than five years of construction, Buddha-Bar, NYC’s newest upscale restaurant is finally opening to the public.

This opulent restaurant, bar and lounge is serving up elevated Pan-Asian cuisine along with featured dishes from Buddha-Bar’s original menu at its Paris location.

Tucked away in a historic building in Tribeca, the two-story venue is decorated with beautiful hanging pendant lights with custom furnishings and décor done by Milan-based company Laura Meroni. However, the most magical interior focal point is the more than 16-foot glass-hewn Buddha sculpture in the center of the space that truly brings the entire vibe together.

“Our vision has been years in the making, and we are excited for guests to finally experience the next level design, food and distinctive atmosphere the restaurant will offer,” said General Manager Franck Maucort.

Guided by Executive Chef Andrew Riccatelli, a Food Network’s Chopped Champion, the New York menu explores the “Pacific Rim cuisine with Asian, Indian, Californian, and South American influenced dishes [that] reflect passion and commitment to ingredient, technique and aesthetics, while never wavering from taste and pleasure.”

With modern twists on maki rolls, Thai-inspired curries, robata grill, sashimi, and additional signature dishes, guests are sure to leave satiated and satisfied. Their bar offers a wide selection of cocktails to enjoy in the main dining area and lounge, along with a gorgeous wine wall that traces an entire panel of the dining space.

Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, corporate event, or just a night out, Buddha-Bar offers two private dining rooms perfect for any occasion.
