Restaurant of a Grand Chef Relais & Châteaux in town. United States,New York

Unique in the world: Marea, situated on the south side of New York’s Central Park, attracts gourmets from around the world thanks to its exquisite Italian-inspired seafood, served in an elegant but relaxed setting

Sean Smith, Maître de Maison, presents the property:

As locations go, it would be difficult to find better. Marea, situated on the south side of New York’s Central Park, attracts gourmets from around the world thanks to its exquisite Italian-inspired seafood, served in an elegant but relaxed setting. Grand Chef Michael White is the culinary force behind Marea, which means tide in Italian, and is a tribute to the bounty of the sea. The menu starts off with a mouth-watering selection of crudo (raw fish), and continues with delectable pasta dishes such as garganelli with crab and Santa Barbara sea urchin and then offers a selection of composed fish courses as well as fresh whole fish. Meat dishes are also available. Part of the joy of Marea is its stunning ambience. Crisp white table clothes meet warm lighting and design features including a dramatic bar made from Egyptian onyx, wall panelling fashioned out of lacquered Indonesian rosewood and hand-dipped silver seashells as window ornaments.
