Celebrated French-born chef Michel Richard is taking on New York City with his first Manhattan restaurant opened at the gilded New York Palace Hotel. Set in three beautiful landmark rooms, Villard Michel Richard offers patrons the option of experiencing an a la carte French bistro menu in the main dining room, a Tuesday-Saturday gourmet prix-fixe seating in the intimate Gallery Room, or a more casual dinner at the bar and lounge.

Noted for pioneering French-California cuisine before moving to Washington DC to open his flagship restaurant, Chef Richard brings the same blend of imaginative yet sophisticated cooking to his New York restaurant, mixing elements of haute New-American cuisine and innovative French flair. Patrons can expect to see the classics on the menu from French Onion Soup and Pâté starters to the Prime Côte de Boeuf Au Poivre main course. But diners can also experience some of Richard’s signature American style dishes such as his famous Fried Chicken served with mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts and three variations of burgers, including a decadent lobster version.

While the menu may lean towards the more casual, bistro style, the décor is anything but. Dramatic and ornate, the design space reflects more of the glitzy landmark nature of the hotel than the intimate feel of the food. Created by renowned designer Jeffrey Beers, the grand historical space features a striking clear glass wine cube as the focal point in the center of the Bistro dining room, and abstract moving image projections on the 30-foot-high barrel vaulted ceiling.

A variety of art installations are layered throughout and showcase portraits of Chef Richard and Henry Villard. The Gallery space features a series of oversized black and white photographs of classic movie starlets, presented in white gold leaf frames and illuminated by halo lighting. To display the chef’s culinary creations of his set tasting menu, tables in the Gallery are illuminated from within and a large circular Chef’s Table sits adjacent to the kitchen. It’s safe to say that while the food may feel comforting and familiar, the experience itself is as extravagant as they come.


For those of you who grew up poor/lower middle class, do you find that it sticks with you throughout life no matter how much money you have?

I had a well paying career and saved money my whole life (another side effect of growing up with not much). Even though I supposedly have enough saved and invested to be comfortable in retirement, per my financial advisor, I still don't really believe it internally. I also still do things like choosing lower priced entrees when eating out, bypassing getting $4 treats like coffee/tea/ice cream, being sure to comparison shop at the grocery store and getting the store brand, etc.

I don't think of myself as cheap and I don't think it is a bad thing to still watch what I spend money on (I think having that attitude is what helped me save money my whole life to get to this point), but I do think I cause myself more stress about little financial decisions than I really need to and it is all based on still being 10 years old and watching my parents struggle with money their entire lives.
