“Peak” is the new eatery that recently joined the Hudson Yards restaurant scene, and though it hasn’t been able to open for too long because of pandemic restrictions, it finally reopened (again) as of February 14!
And don’t forget: The Edge, the highest observation deck in the entire western hemisphere, has also reopened. Still, the Edge is on the 100th floor of 30 Hudson Yards, so Peak actually beats that height on the 101st floor! And massive windows surrounding the dining offer some of the best views in the city.
As you probably know, indoor dining reopened in NYC on February 12, as Governor Cuomo announced. And Peak wasted no time in welcoming New Yorkers back to its gorgeous space…
The 10,000-square-foot restaurant serves modern American cuisine by Executive Chef Chris Cryer (formerly Executive Chef, Seamore’s). Other NYC high-end culinary professionals also joined the ranks, like General Manager Chris Nelson (formerly GM of Union Square Cafe) and Beverage Director Zack Kameron (formerly Head Sommelier, A Voce Columbus). So you know it’s a high-end, high-quality experience.
The restaurant was designed by acclaimed architect David Rockwell and is located at the very top of the 1,296-foot tower. It includes a 110-seat dining room, 45-seat cocktail bar, private dining room and an event space for up to 300 people.
The menu will rely on Chef Cryer’s relationships with local fishermen, farmers and purveyors and his commitment to sustainability. This includes entrees like Maine Lobster, with Roasted, Smoked & Pickled Heirloom Beets and an Almond Bisque; and Rohan Duck, with Blood Orange, Baby Turnip, Tardivo and a Croquette.
And signature cocktails include the “Rhubarb Twist” with Champagne, Fresh Rhubarb Cordial; and the “Gold Coast,” with Greenhook Ginsmiths Gin, ALB vodka, Lillet and Golden Olive.
The masterminds behind the project are the RHC (Rhubarb Hospitality Collection), which has also created the famous Sky Garden and Royal Albert Hall in London. Their first international restaurant was Wild Ink, also at Hudson Yards.
We’re looking forward to seeing the city from this angle! Make reservations by calling 332-204-8509 or visiting their website.
