New York’s $25 billion Hudson Yards development is now open for business.
Facing onto the main square and the Vessel, Thomas Heatherwick’s bizarre and beautiful viewing tower, is D&D’s newest restaurant, queensyard.
Designed by CetraRuddy, the team behind D&D’s 20 Stories in Manchester and Bluebird London in NYC, queensyard’s interior blends the warm environment of a contemporary English home with the sleek feel of a New York penthouse.
The space balances crafted wood and metal textures, inspired by the original Hudson Rail Yard tracks.
What catches the eye is the strangely beguiling artwork pictured here. Why from different eras and why faceless? Is the poppy field in the distance becoming the Union flag? Weird and wonderful.
An elegant private dining room encircled by glowing wine storage maintains the vibrancy of the main dining room with a touch of added intimacy.
queensyard seats 110 in the Dining Room, 80 in the Kitchen, 50 in the Cocktail Bar and 12 in the private dining room.
