Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group announced that Chef José Andrés and Chef Costas Spiliadis will both bring chef-driven concepts to the collection of restaurants at Hudson Yards.
Slated to open in Fall 2018, the restaurant collection will include a dozen dining experiences curated by Chef Thomas Keller and restaurateur and developer, Kenneth A. Himmel.
Chef Andrés will open a Spanish-inspired restaurant while Chef Spiliadis will bring his Greek seafood restaurant Estiatorio Milos to join Thomas Keller’s classic American concept.
The restaurants will be housed in the one million-square-foot Shops & Restaurants at Hudson Yards, anchored by Neiman Marcus and designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects.
Both chefs bring years of experience and industry recognition to the Hudson Yards restaurant collection.
Originally from Spain, Chef Andrés is widely recognized as a pioneer of ‘small plates’ dining in the United States as well as the face of Spanish cuisine.
Awarded “Outstanding Chef” by the James Beard Foundation in 2003, Bon Appetit’s Chef of the Year in 2004 and named one of TIME’s 100 most influential people in 2012, Andrés is an internationally recognized culinary innovator.
“New York City was my first entry into this great country which I now call home,” said Chef Andrés. “I’m incredibly excited to join the roster of amazing talent and brands that will bring life to this dynamic new Hudson Yards neighborhood.”
Chef Spiliadisʼ restaurants are known as both exquisite dining destinations and cultural beacons, with locations around the world.
Chef Spiliadis said, “While Hudson Yards is a major modernization project, its roots still lie in the long established essence of a city that means so much to me.”
Chef Keller and Himmel previously worked together to open Per Se and Bouchon in Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle.
