Susur Lee is not done with New York yet. The former Shang chef has partnered with the China Center to open a restaurant on the 66th floor of One World Trade Center. This is actually the first restaurant that has been officially announced for the building, if you can believe it.
The restaurant, which does not have a name yet, will be located in the private members-only club inside the China Center, so presumably, the general public will not have access to this establishment. According to a press release, Lee is creating a "menu that reintroduces and re-imagines authentic Chinese flavors while capturing the modern spirit and freshness of contemporary Chinese cuisine. "
China Center is the first of its kind where top social, business and cultural leaders from China and U.S. gather under one roof to spur interactive and growth opportunities. With a hospitality touch and a lifestyle edge, China Center at One World Trade Center is a coveted venue for fine dining, corporate events, cultural activities, business, social opportunities and global dialogue.This new restaurant will be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The China Center, and the Susur Lee restaurant, are expected to open inside One World Trade in 2015.
