Overlooking Midtown’s verdant Bryant Park, chef Gabriel Kreuther’s eponymous restaurant offers a comfortably luxurious, Alsatian-inspired dining experience with a distinctly New York spirit.
Michelin-starred chef Gabriel Kreuther was born on a family farm in Alsace and raised on his mother’s traditional Alsatian cooking. After attending culinary school and working in Michelin-starred kitchens throughout Germany, France and Switzerland, Kreuther arrived in New York City in 1997 to work as a sous chef at La Caravelle restaurant. A chef de cuisine position at Jean-Georges and an executive chef role at the lauded Atelier at the Ritz-Carlton followed. In 2004, Kreuther became the executive chef of Danny Meyer’s The Modern, where his cooking received numerous accolades throughout his nearly decade-long tenure. A member of the Bocuse d’Or USA Culinary Council, Kreuther was named one of Food & Wine’s Best New Chefs in 2003 and received a 2009 James Beard Foundation Award for “Best Chef: New York City.”
