Four Seasons Bids Farewell to Midtown Location

After 57 years, the Four Seasons at the Seagram Building in Midtown Manhattan hosted its final dinner service. On Saturday July 16 the famed New York restaurant was filled with loyalists bidding farewell to the hotel.

Reservations for the last night opened two months prior, and for good reason according to the restaurant. Cars started pulling up mid afternoon and by 5 p.m. the line for reservations ran past the bar full of longtime fans.

The Four Seasons set a bar for American fine dining when it first opening in 1959, but has since grown a strong reputation resting on its extravagant tone, clientele and design. Executive chef for the last 20 years, Peck Zantilaveevan had over 100 ducks prepared to roast for the dinner service.

Everything inside the walls of the restaurant will be auctioned off on July 26. From tables and chairs to ashtrays and plates, the entirety of the inside furniture will be sold. The restaurant plans to reopen at 280 Park Avenue next year featuring exclusive designs by Brazilian architect Isay Weinfeld.

Notable attendees include: Martha Stewart, Alex von Bidder, Lynn McCary, Rita Jammet, Evan Hughes, Igor Bogojevic, Elizabeth Kennedy, Lizzie Tisch, Jonathan Tisch, Paula Zahn, Amy Fine Collins, Steve Bemkey, Nick Koster, Todd Shapiro, Josh Glick and Mary Remington.
