NYRestaurant Week: The Mark Hotel Restaurant by Jacques Grange

Today's post in our NY Restaurant Week series features the Jean-Georges restaurant at The Mark Hotel, which was entirely re-designed (restaurant and hotel) in 2010 by the famed designer, Jacques Grange. Nevermind the Jean-Georges food (ha!), what a chance to see and experience design by YSL's own decorator, the esteemed Jacques Grange?

We love how the bar has quite the personality. Here's how Sam Sifton of the NYTimes describes the experience as you leave the eclectic bar above...

"Past it, a corridor of wine racks leads to a spacious lounge with another bar, including a nice little raw bar.  In this area, and the 90-seat dining room beyond it, the palette of the designer, Jacques Grange, turns coppery, and the organic shapes give way to stripes and squares, with bright Venetian glass columns punctuating the walls. In one section, the ceiling of the restaurant was raised to incorporate an original glass ceiling that had been in the hotel’s second-floor banquet room."

And how could we not include some images of the remainder of the hotel - also fully re-designed by Jacques Grange?

We're in love with the art in these rooms...

Supreme design meets efficiency. A NYC must.

Bathroom to the stars. Wow.

When can we check in? Stay-cation!
