(NEW YORK, NY) – Billionaire Developer Stephen Ross and resident of 35 Hudson Yards is getting his own private restaurant located in the same residential tower or so it seems. In October, the 92-story residential tower featuring the first Equinox Hotel will be opening the members-only restaurant that features a line-up of Michelin-starred chefs.
An “exclusive amenity” perfectly describes this swanky new addition, although residents paid anywhere from $5.1 to $27.7 million for a condo in the tower, it doesn’t mean that they will be provided with access to the restaurant. A source told the New York Post “ It’s not for residents, It’s for the developer’s super-rich buddies and CEO friends. Residents can join but it’s so expensive.”
The eatery designed by David Rockefeller is a collaboration of modern and old-school interiors. The WS New York website states it is “ A habitual staple of upscale casual and fine dining.’
Besides the rotating roster of Michelin-starred chefs, The WS will not only be providing exquisite food but also “ unparalleled access to the finest wine and spirits” as told by its website.
Because the restaurant is a partnership between Hudson Yards developer Related and the publisher of Wine Spectator, the restaurant will be provided with vintage wines that are 90 points or above on Wine Spectator Magazine. Two master sommeliers will direct the space along with St. Regis general manager Paul Nash.
WS New York is said to become “a unique place destined to become one of the most coveted private clubs and restaurants” the website has not yet released a membership cost but it made well aware that it will not be open to residents
