Villard Michel Richard New York


As part of a major renovation of the New York Palace Hotel, JBI was commissioned to design a fine dining restaurant for acclaimed chef Michel Richard. The three rooms that comprise Villard Michel Richard are landmarked interiors from the historic 1882 mansion of Henry Villard; JBI hon­ored this historic space while infusing the restaurant with a contemporary energy and glamour. JBI’s design reflects the whimsical personality of Michel Richard, including a wall of holographic photographs behind the bar that alternate between Michel Richard and Henry Villard, a dramatic 1000-bottle glass wine cube, and oversize 7×7-foot pho­tographs of classic Hollywood actresses.
