Yes, Lexus actually runs a restaurant…well, with some help from Union Square Hospitality Group. Intersect by Lexus is comprised of a first floor cafe, second floor fine restaurant and lounge, and third floor exhibition space. Both the chef designing the menu for the restaurant and the contents of the exhibition space will be rotating pretty frequently, so head to the space in the Meatpacking District soon to experience this iteration!
The current art exhibit is called Essential Invisible by Future Wife. The interactive exhibit aims to capture the auras of the guests by using heat sensing cameras and lane departure technology. That might sound super techie, but it’s an insanely fun and visually stimulating experience worth the visit alone.
After you’ve worked up an appetite running around the exhibition, head downstairs to the main dining room, which currently features Global Chef-In-Residence Gregory Marchand of the restaurant Frenchie in Paris and London and recent recipient of a Michelin Star at the Paris location. He brings his style of infusing classic dishes with subtle international flair to the Big Apple for a limited time only.
Dishes include Halibut a la Grenobloise, Terrine, and Lamb Ragu along with a show stopping Yuzu Mont Blanc for dessert. If you’re intimidated by dinner, head over for the excellent two course lunch for $35 including tip. Lunch features a sparse but impeccably done lobster roll with brioche so rich it’s almost custard and fried chicken with jalapeño aioli and a bacon scone (which you can also purchase to go downstairs at the cafe).
There are subtle reminders of the luxury brand throughout the space, from the wall of toy cars outside the bathroom to the spoke theme running through the two floors. Make sure you head over before the restaurant and art space switch over in March!
