It's as much about the showman as it is the show. Sirio Maccioni's presence on the New York gastronomic scene is legendary—and when he's roaming the dining room, he adds a tremendous energy to the milieu. Le Cirque's third incarnation in the stunning Bloomberg building credits Adam Tihany's study in steel and glass. Despite the change in location, the kitchen continues to execute timeless Le Cirque favorites as well as dishes that are as contemporary and whimsical as the dining room's current design.
