15 years after the opening of his first restaurant in Paris, l’Acajou, chef Jean Imbert opens his first restaurant in New York.

Located at the heart of the Meatpacking district (Manhattan), along the High Line, between the famous Chelsea Market and the Whitney Museum of American Art. The restaurant is in a former grocery store of a red brick building built in 1887.

The restaurant will be open every days.

The menu will carry seasonal and local products, directly sourced from the producers. Jean Imbert has surrounded himself with a team whom he works with since last summer, specially dedicated to finding organic products.
