INTERSECT by Lexus Opens in New York City

Lexus Intersect First Floor

INTERSECT by Lexus has opened its third location in New York City, marking the first North American setting for the brand’s lifestyle-outreach experience center. Designed by interior designer Masamichi Katayama of Wonderwall, INTERSECT NYC is a 16,500-square-foot, three-story building in the Meatpacking District of Manhattan.

The three floors each serve a different purpose, with the street level outfitted with a cafe and CRAFTED by Lexus retail area, the second floor featuring a full-service restaurant and cocktail bar, and the third floor serving as a meeting space for events.

The New York Times explains the cuisine hierarchy:

Union Square Hospitality Group is behind the cafe and restaurant, but the food is being devised by Gregory Marchand, a French celebrity chef who owns the Frenchie restaurants in Paris and London. He will be on hand from time to time for the next four to six months; after that, another chef-in-residence will be imported. “We want chefs who are new to New York and up-and-coming,” said Kirk Edmondson, the manager.

The long-term executive chef is Nickolas Martinez, who worked with Joël Robuchon and at Foragers City Table. Kaz Fujimura is responsible for pastries, and Andrea Morris is in charge of drinks and wine.

Lexus Intersect Again

Eater New York describes the restaurant menu:

To start, in the dining room, there are dishes such as foie gras terrine, gnocchi with sweetbreads and mushrooms, and monkfish with celery root, coffee sabayon, and black garlic. The counter-service cafe brings takes on standard cafe fare like gem lettuce chicken caesar salad, an acai bowl, and a reuben with pastrami, cheddar, cider vinegar slaw, and mustard. Pastries by Kaz Fujimura include brown butter fudge brownies and cranberry maple cupcakes.

INTERSECT NYC is located at 412 West 14th Street in Manhattan. Reservations for the restaurant can be made on the INTERSECT NYC website, which is packed with details on the new brand space.

Been waiting eagerly for this location to open. I've been to the one in Tokyo—it's a really neat space.

How does one receive an invitation to attend the opening?

Unfortunately it seems super booked already as I asked. I am unsure of the selection process.
It officially opened today.
