Duck… and Big Apple? Dan Doherty (ex-Duck and Waffle) has partnered with London’s premium hospitality group rhubarb for a new all-day dining destination at New York’s Hudson Yards
Opening March 2019, the exciting new restaurant, bar and terrace will be located on the fifth floor of the newly developed 30 Hudson Yards on Manhattan’s West Side. This will be the first international location for the London hospitality group, which counts Sky Garden and the Royal Albert Hall within its portfolio.
Chef Partner Dan Doherty said, “I love New York & have always been a fan of the food scene there, so I was really excited when rhubarb approached me to work as Chef Partner on the Hudson Yards project.
Serving brunch to lunch and dinner, Dan’s ‘East meets West’ menus will feature a range of travel-inspired dishes.
• Singapore chilli crab croquettes
• Scallop, apple, kohlrabi & Chinese chilli oil
• Beef fillet, chilli, daikon & soy cured egg
• Asparagus, sticky shitake, brown butter hollandaise
• Roasted & glazed herb fed chicken with chicken fat rice
Weekend brunch will see Asian twists on classics from an English breakfast bibimbap with fried rice, egg, smoked bacon and spiced sausage; to Korean pancakes, and black sesame waffles with smoked miso ice cream.
CEO of rhubarb, P.B Jacobse commented, “We are delighted to partner with Dan, who offers a raw passion for food and an infectious energy. He also shares our ethos, which is to push the boundaries of food expectations and deliver something truly memorable. Hudson Yards is a development that will change the way New York lives, works and eats, and to be part of that is extraordinary for us all.”
Designed by Robert Angell Design International, the 5,800 sq.ft, 171 cover space takes inspiration from its Hudson Yards location and the original majestic New York Penn Station building, but with Eastern influences.
Blending industrial West with authentic East, the restaurant and bar will be light, bright and grand, making an ideal NYC pitstop.
