Premium hospitality group rhubarb has announced that it will open two restaurants and an event space at Hudson Yards, New York, a new neighbourhood rising on Manhattan’s West Side. This will be the first international location for the London hospitality group. Both venues will open in 2019.
The shops and restaurants at Hudson Yards will house a new 5,800 square foot restaurant concept by rhubarb on the fifth level, and the team will create a 10,000 square foot bar, restaurant and events space on the top of 30 Hudson Yards, the neighbourhood’s tallest tower.
The bar, restaurant and event space will offer breath-taking views, occupying the top two levels of the 1,296 feet tall tower, which will also house the highest outdoor observation deck in the city.
P.B. Jacobse, CEO, rhubarb, said: “We are incredibly excited to be opening our first restaurants outside the UK at Hudson Yards, New York. We have been looking to open in New York for several years now and the Hudson Yards development is incomparable – their commitment to a fully collaborative approach with all of their partners, from retail to food and beverage means this will be the ultimate, united experience. Once completed, Hudson Yards will be regarded as the most iconic development of today’s generation, re-defining the culinary scene in New York and we simply had to be a part of it.”
rhubarb’s culinary offerings will join a collection of more than a two dozen restaurants and eateries curated by renowned chef Thomas Keller and Related Urban President and CEO and restaurateur Kenneth A. Himmel.
