Westfield World Trade Center announces deal with two of the world’s top restaurateurs
Since opening in August 2016, Westfield World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan has become an iconic landmark in New York City, featuring the Santiago Calatrava designed Oculus and more than 100 global and local fashion, beauty, lifestyle, and technology brands.
Today, Westfield announced the formation of a partnership with the Make It Nice restaurant group, led by chef Daniel Humm and Will Guidara, to open a new casual restaurant in Lower Manhattan.
Owners of the Michelin three-star rated Eleven Madison Park (voted the 3rd best restaurant in the entire world by "The World's 50 Best") as well as Manhattan's opulent NoMad restaurant and bar—Humm and Guidara will open their new 7,000 square-foot restaurant at Westfield World Trade Center in 2018 in a spectacular setting that overlooks the Oculus.
The restaurant will join the current line-up of award-winning restaurants including Eataly's Mario Batali and Joe and Lidia Bastianich, Epicerie Boulud's Daniel Boulud, and Lobster Press created by Michelin star-winning chef Marc Forgione. Coming soon, WWTC will also be home to the renowned London steakhouse Hawksmoor (the "best steak restaurant in the UK").
"We could not be more thrilled to team up with Westfield in this historic and remarkable location," said Chef Daniel Humm.
“Bringing our food and hospitality into the Oculus at World Trade Center—an incredibly important and iconic addition to our city—is extremely humbling, we're so excited to be a part of it!"
