The Tavern By WS Joins An All-Star Dining Lineup At New York’s Hudson YardsNovember 14, 2019
Hudson Yards, an ambitious new residential and office complex on New York’s west side, already offers restaurants from outstanding chefs including Thomas Keller, José Andrés and David Chang. The latest addition, the Tavern by WS, adds a different aspect: an exclusive affiliation with Wine Spectator, the world’s most widely read wine publication. The Tavern opened on November 13.
“Being the Tavern by WS, we of course want to accentuate the wine,” said beverage director Michaël Engelmann, formerly of Wine Spectator Grand Award winner The Modern.
Engelmann will work alongside executive chef Eli Kaimeh, formerly of Wine Spectator Grand Award winner Per Se and Best of Award of Excellence winner Gramercy Tavern. “We are extremely proud to open the Tavern by WS,” said Kenneth A. Himmel, president and CEO of Related Urban, developer of the Shops & Restaurants at Hudson Yards, who collaborated on the project. “It is sure to be not only a great neighborhood restaurant, but a must-visit for culinary and beverage exploration.”
“Being in a partnership with Ken Himmel and Stephen Ross makes this an exciting project for Wine Spectator,” said Marvin R. Shanken, editor and publisher of Wine Spectator. Here’s the full story.—Julie HaransSubscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
