Bob Bob Cité | City Restaurant
Bob Bob Ricard may already be named twice, but now it’s literally developing a twin.
Its follow-up will be called Bob Bob Cité, and you’ll be able to find it within the huge Cheesegrater Building next year. Specifically, suspended over the giant atrium, 30 metres in the air.
It’s been a long time coming – set to open “a mere 14 months” later than planned (an improvement on the original, at least, which took 2 years). And like its glamorous twin, it’ll keep the details that made the first venue so likeable; all the seating will be in booths, and they’ll keep those famous “Press For Champagne” buttons – except now that it’s in the city, that Champagne can naturally be ordered in Magnums, Jeroboams, and Methuselahs.
But there’s a few changes afoot, too; they’re drafting in superchef Eric Chavot to helm the kitchens, which means that the menu will switch from Anglo-Russian to French, country-style cooking. And it’ll seat an impressive 190 guests over two dining rooms, as well as three private rooms with their own reception areas overlooking the city.
Which might cost a few bob.
NOTE: Bob Bob Cité will open in April 2019, and you can check out their Twitter feed right HERE.
