The Four Seasons Restaurant Restaurant Review

: The Four Seasons Restaurant is the only restaurant in New York that has been designated a landmark. The Philip Johnson-designed interior---with metal curtains that undulate seductively and the famous pool flanked by seasonal trees---itself merits a trip to the restaurant. The food is good and refreshingly simple, but it’s not as good as in years gone by; ditto the service, which a decade ago ruled as the finest in the city. The prices, though, remain among the highest anywhere. Of the restaurant's two dining areas, the famed Grill Room is still a major power lunch spot, but somehow excitement and innovation seem missing to us. But the soothing Pool Room remains a romantic throwback. The menu is comprised of familiar items such as roasted veal loin matched with sweetbreads and porcini spätzle or red wine-poached turbot. Food trends have left the seminal Four Seasons behind, which is somehow sad and somehow so wonderfully fitting.
