Located in the landmark Puck Building in lower Manhattan, the newly-opened Chefs Club by Food & Wine is a restaurant that offers culinary events showcasing the magazine’s Best New Chefs platform, as well as the work of an international roster of star chefs.
Rockwell Group’s design concept is based on the notion that Chefs Club will break down the boundaries between the chef and guests. The existing turn of the century space has been envisioned to serve as a backdrop for a series of changing art installations that will capture 'the mind of the chef.'
The 6,000 square foot first floor dining space is organized into four areas: a bar/lounge, a main dining room, an open studio kitchen, and a chef’s studio/private dining room.
Simple and organic materials in neutral hues, such as walnut, raw concrete, leather and blackened steel, complement the existing interior architecture. Several vitrine cases with blackened steel frames and glass panels are located throughout the space. Renowned design expert Murray Moss is will be curating the cases on an ongoing basis in collaboration with Rockwell Group.
