Tribeca Grand’s modern interpretation of the archetypal New York bar has all the key ingredients including a diverse curated music program that feature cutting edge selections, weekly DJs, and an adjacent private lounge legendary for live bands and private parties.
Intimately nestled behind paned glass, the sleek modern design and glossy bar are the perfect respite from New York’s noise. All day and late night menus created by the hotel’s renowned Chef include items to satiate any craving and pair perfectly with the extensive signature house cocktail and wine lists. The Church Bar is an intimate aside for the day and a downtown destination by night.
Parisian born, Richard Farnabe successfully established himself in France before an impressive trajectory bought him from Paris to New York, to accept a position under a fellow compatriot, Daniel Boulud at Restaurant Daniel in Manhattan. During his tenure, Farnabe worked diligently and it was not long before Jean-Georges Vongerichten approached Farnabe and offered him the opportunity to direct the opening efforts for Jean Georges. This role later translated into a Chef de Cuisine position at The Mercer Kitchen.
For the next few years, Farnabe dabbled in a host of varied projects, first as the private chef for Tommy Hilfiger, followed by a consultancy for Montrachet, and then back in the kitchens at Lotus. Additionally, Farnabe opened Prime in Huntington where he received 5 star diamond from triple AAA within one year of opening, and consulted with Picholine restaurant, where subsequently, the restaurant received 2-Michelin stars.
Chef Farnabe’s menus continue to garner critical praise and are simultaneously lauded for their fresh approach and innovative mix of flavors and ingredients.
