Hospitality group rhubarb is set to open two restaurants and an events space at the new Hudson Yards neighbourhood on Manhattan’s West Side in New York.
Opening in 2019, these will be the first international venues for the group.
The Shops & Restaurants at Hudson Yards will house a new 5,800 sq ft restaurant concept on the fifth level, as well as a 10,000 sq ft bar, restaurant and events space on top of 30 Hudson Yards, the neighbourhood’s tallest tower at 1,296 sq ft, occupying the top two levels.
“We are incredibly excited to be opening our first restaurants outside the UK at Hudson Yards, New York,” says rhubarb CEO P.B Jacobse.
“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.”
