Where Central Park Is The Eye-Candy: Manhattan’s Best Kept Secret & Special Event Space


NEW YORK – March 2, 2016 – Only a relatively few people out of the 8 million residents and 50 million visitors of New York City have a view of the beauty that is Central Park. But for those who want to live beyond their apartments and condos and boardrooms for brief periods of time, there are the private event spaces at The Restaurant and Bar Collection at Time Warner Center.

From some of the most legendary names in dining and nightlife, accented with striking views of Central Park, those in the know in New York know that this is the place to host memorable events of a lifetime – be it for business or with family and friends.

First, there is A Voce, known for its refined cuisine, extensive wine list and chic contemporary décor. What few people know, however, is that this contemporary ingredient-driven Italian restaurant has a private dining room that seats 65 guests and can be divided to host 35 people or even a very intimate seating for 12 guests in La Tavola wine room.

Then there is Bouchon Bakery, Chef Thomas Keller’s full-service café offering up his unique twist on French boulangerie fare from sandwiches and soups to charcuterie and macaroon towers – all complemented with gourmet coffees and wines. This establishment actually caters semi-private events for up to 60 people.

If it’s an urban edge that one is looking for, the place is Landmarc, where Chef Marc Murphy takes the neighborhood bistro and gives it a French-inspired accent with a great international wine list. With stunning corner views and ample windows and light, Landmarc can host up to 90 people in a full, private dinning room and up to 45 guests for a smaller affair.

Of course there also is Per Se, Chef Thomas Keller’s three-Michelin-starred property featuring a daily nine-course tasting menu and a nine-course vegetable tasting menu using classic French technique and the finest quality ingredients available. The restaurant can host up to ten guests in the East Room and up to 60 guests seated in the West Room. A buyout for 80 diners is also possible for those who desire an exquisite meal and private event experience.

A steakhouse, a New York institution, should always be an option, and at Time Warner Center it’s called Porter House Bar and Grill, Chef Michael Lomonaco’s fresh take on an American Classic. We’re talking big, succulent chops and meats and premium seafood towers. Like any steak house, there are so many options, starting with a full private dining room for 50 people, a divided private dining room for 24 people, or just take over the entire place if you have 220 guests on your list.

The newest one-of-a-kind premiere private/event space is Parkview Lounge. Already famous for an incomparable cocktail lounge with a well-balanced menu of gourmet small plates and hors d’oeuvres, the corner venue presents a stunning view of Central Park and is known for its “see and be seen” celebrity and influencer clientele.
