Intersect by Lexus Restaurant Review

:
About the restaurant & décor: Curated by restaurateur Danny Meyer in conjunction with car company Lexus, Intersect by Lexus is a concept restaurant bringing diners an ever-changing roster of top chefs. Main dining room seating is in a white room in front of a very busy open kitchen. The room exudes cool, with no extraneous decoration, so that the food remains the star of the show. At the edge of the restaurant, a café and bar with small plates provides a second dining-space option. Downstairs feels like an art gallery that’s merged with a hangout for freelancers without offices. To culminate this inventive experience, a visit to the gender-neutral, very Japanese restroom is a must.

Likes: Innovation at its most elegant.
Dislikes: None.

Food & Drinks: It’s hard to describe the menu that you’ll receive, as the chef might be Gregory Marchand from Paris this week, or Sergio Borroso from Chile next week. But these chefs are here to show off what they’re known for and to share it with you. For example, Marchand (Frenchie) offered a medley of seasonal dishes including a tender halibut with a bread crumb crust à la Grenobloise and baby leeks with Parmesan sabayon. For dessert, the tarte Tatin with cardamom cream was simple elegance. Similarly, the wine list to accompany the menus is carefully selected to provide the best possible pairing for the visiting chefs.
