Located in the heart of Manhattan’s Upper East Side, The Mark Hotel is fabulous for a long list of reasons including being A-listers top choice for pre-Met Gala getting ready, its proximity to Central Park and its old-world comfort. And now, the boldly lavish hotel is welcoming storied Parisian institution Caviar Kaspia to the Big Apple with their first New York location residing within the equally storied hotel.
“Opening Caviar Kaspia inside the iconic Upper East Side hotel is a milestone for our Parisian institution,” shared Ramon Mac Crohon, CEO of Caviar Kaspia. “Considered as the “Fashion Cantine”, Caviar Kaspia assumes its authentic attachment to the international sphere of fashion and creatives. It was therefore a natural evolution for us to open at The Mark Hotel with whom we share the same values, philosophy, and clientele… It’s a match made in luxury heaven.”
Designed by celebrated interior designer Jacques Grange, the restaurant and caviar boutique draws on the same inviting atmosphere that has made the famously chic restaurant a celebrity favorite since it first opened in 1927. Old-world elegance meets classic New York in the space, harmonizing with The Mark Hotel’s own Uptown aesthetic. Caviar Kaspia’s iconic blue tablecloths are present, as are emerald green mohair banquettes, wood-paneled walls, a sculptural Belgian Black marble bar, with warm ambient lighting by L’Observatoire International.
“I was inspired by Caviar Kaspia’s original dining room on Place de la Madeleine in Paris, which is so intimate and warm,” shared Interior Designer Jacques Grange. “I felt passionate about remaining true to its design but translated through the eyes of the trendy and timeless Mark Hotel – an iconic destination in New York City.”
An extensive menu for the restaurant celebrates the “Art of Caviar”, including their cult favorite twice-baked potato topped with caviar, blinis with smoked salmon, bottarga, vegetarian caviar made from liquified and spherized truffle, and an array of eggs and pasta – with caviar, of course. To compliment the restaurant, a boutique will allow diners to take home some of the delights and delicacies of Caviar Kaspia, providing the ultimate home indulgence or gourmet gift.
In the world of Izak Senbahar, Co-owner of The Mark Hotel, Caviar Kaspia is sure to become “an instant New York classic.” But act quickly – reservations are required!
