Another deal has been inked for the massive Hudson Yards project, a 26-acre complex developed by Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group, and it will definitely reach new heights. On Tuesday, Related announced that London restaurant and catering company Rhubarb will run a 10,000-square-foot public space in the nearly 1,300-foot supertall 30 Hudson Yards. Rhubarb will operate a bar, restaurant, and event space on the 92nd floor, one floor above the tower’s observation deck, which at 1,100 feet will be the highest outdoor deck in the city. According to Eater and the Post, the company will also open a 5,800-square-foot restaurant on the fifth floor and an indoor-outdoor bar at the observatory.

The two dining spaces will be Rhubarb’s first U.S. project, a company that has operated spaces in the Historic Royal Palaces and other U.K. museums. Rhubarb’s smaller restaurant will be on the fifth level of the mall section of the complex, which will be anchored by Neiman Marcus.
On the very top floor, there will be a dining room with half of the seats facing Midtown, and other half facing New Jersey. In addition, they will operate an indoor-outdoor bar on the observation deck. All the spaces will open in 2019.
Overall, 25 restaurant and food concepts are coming to Hudson Yards, with chefs like David Chang, Juan Santa Cruz and Michael Lomonaco, Thomas Keller and Costas Spiliadis setting up shop.
