The Aesthetically Pleasing and Masterfully Designed Shun

The Aesthetically Pleasing and Masterfully Designed Shun

October 10, 2019 by

Upon first glance on the second level, a gorgeous neo art deco design redefines luxury at Shun without overwhelming patrons with glaring gold. The minimalist, light-filled interiors by award-winning Parisian architect Joseph Dirand provide a quiet haven from the bustling streets of Midtown and even the buzzy Le Jardinier restaurant below. A contemporary French restaurant invigorated with Japanese influences, Shun is a solo project from chef Alain Verzeroli, whose mentor was the legendary Joël Robuchon. From the caviar-speckled cod dabbed in cream sauce to curls of hearty lobster frilled with lemon grass and tomato confit, the menu reflects Verzeroli’s experience of working in France and Japan by melding European dishes with Japanese ingredients. Bar Shun, the restaurant’s cocktail lounge adjacent to the dining room, resembles the backstage of an elaborate fashion show, decked out with hanging lights, dainty mirrors embedded in the wall and towering curtain around the bar. Try The Villain cocktail, made of Trois Rivieres Rhum Agricole, hibiscus, lemon and ginger beer, which complements the small selection of delicate but extraordinary bites. 610 Lexington Ave., shun-nyc.com
