Restaurant brand Cipriani has launched a large-format dining experience near New York’s Lincoln Center. Housed in a Waterline Square structure designed by Richard Meier, Viñoly Architects and Kohn Pedersen Fox, Harry’s Table by Cipriani invites visitors to explore a wide range of F&B options, including a cafe, ice cream bar and high-end retail vendors upmarket selling cheese, bread, fish, and more.
Spread over 28,000 square feet, the concept features interiors by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio that transport guests to Italy’s bustling food markets. “Harry’s Table brings a fresh touch to the neighborhood while keeping a strong Italian heritage in mind,” says Martin Brudnizki. “We wanted Harry’s Table to be akin to the sprawling markets and local restaurants one encounters while traveling, ensuring it was as authentic and New York-centric as possible.”
An honest materiality of wood, terrazzo, tile and terracotta covers Cipriani’s Harry’s Table along with recurring tones of ocean blue, burnt orange and brass that channel the hues of the Italian coast. Statement chandeliers also illuminate native terrazzo floors — a nod to New York’s subways — while terracotta floor accents infuse a casual yet refined touch. Accented by leather stools and sleek light fixtures above, a wood-topped bar nods to the glamor of mid-century Italy also anchors the interior.
Harry’s Table by Cipriani is also home to Bellini’s Restaurant, which overlooks the Hudson River and Waterline Square Park via indoor-outdoor seating.
