Le Bernardin Reopens in New York

Great news for foodies in New York: The Manhattan version of Le Bernardin, the high-end Parisian seafood restaurant, is set to reopen on Friday after more than a month of gutting and renovation. According to the New York Times, the dining room, designed by Bentel & Bentel (the architects for Gramercy Tavern and the Modern), will retain almost nothing of the original except the elaborate coffered wood ceiling.

The entrance area has reportedly been changed into a glass vestibule, allowing diners to go either directly into the dining room or to the expanded bar and lounge with 30 seats, separated from the dining room by more of those teak panels. Most notable is a 24-foot triptych painting of a stormy sea, "Deep Water No. 1," by Brooklyn artist Ran Ortner, that covers the back wall.
