Through the graceful archway, punctuated with 18th century antiques and a delicate Aubusson tapestry, elegant French doors lead to a spacious patio, sip a cappuccino while deciding where in the world to go.
An elegant wooden staircase leads to the 2nd floor custom-designed dream kitchen, the centerpiece of which is a Molteni stove. Equipped with All-Clad cookware, it features the world’s most delectable cuisine as prepared by top Relais Gourmands super-chefs, Patrick O’Connell, Daniel Boulud, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Eric Ripert, Charlie Palmer & Thomas Keller.
The concept is a result of collaboration with 3 luxury partners: Relais & Châteaux, European Country Kitchens – and Electrolux, the premium European appliance maker, with its Electrolux ICON™ line, new in North Amerca, and Molteni by Electrolux, the custom, hand-crafted stove.
Interior designer, Didier Lorence brings his French flair for design into the picture placing his antiques so that they artfully enhance the space. Lorence, a gallery owner in Paris and Moscow, just opened his first NYC showroom 2 blocks from the Maison des Relais & Châteaux.
Régis Bulot, International President, reflects. “The NYC Maison des Relais & Châteaux follows the successful launch of our flagship Maison in Paris 2 years ago. With another one scheduled to open shortly in London, we are confident that our NYC Maison is a showcase the better to continue our vision of luxury collaboration dedicated to gastronomy.”
