Le Jardinier

The French word for "gardener," Le Jardinier's cuisine and setting evoke a modern greenhouse in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. Michelin-starred Chef Alain Verzeroli's menu is focused on utilizing the highest quality vegetables, seasonal ingredients, and fresh herbs, fitting seamlessly into the timeless, light-filled interiors designed by award-winning Architect Joseph Dirand. The refined yet approachable cuisine, atmosphere, and service create a holistic hospitality experience for our guests.


The modern, light-filled space is a journey into a serene lush indoor garden. Interior elements are one-of-a-kind, with unique green-marble walls and floors, custom made furntire, and a composition of plants and vertical louvers adorning the floor to ceiling windows to match the vegetable-driven menu.
