The Musket Room NYC serves New Zealand inspired food (thinking that means lots of lamb dishes?) in an ultra chic location in downtown Noho. Though this restaurant is no newcomer to the NY dining scene, its charm has certainly proven to be long lasting. London based Alexander Waterworth Interiors has taken care of the design by taking inspiration from chef Matt Lambert’s New Zealand roots. Using a combination of raw materials, exposed brick and rich walnut toned timbers to create a warm and intriguing dining experience, Designers James Waterworth and Alexander Evangelou have injected a contemporary edge by using mid-century furniture, brass lighting and deep indigo leather banquettes to pack a punch.
Waterworth’s past projects have included high-end commercial and residential interiors both in London and abroad, including The Club at the Ivy and Le Caprice NY (now closed) while fellow partner Evangelou originally trained in antiques and set design before following his passion for interior design at the prestigious KLC.
Having earned its very own Michelin star, The Musket Room is more than just fancy decor with Chef Lambert at the helm. New Zealand red deer with flavours of gin and passionfruit pavlova with strawberries and cream offer more than just a nod the Lambert’s home country – and seems to have every Antipodean within a square mile running to the door for a taste of home cuisine. Whether your from down under or not – be sure to keep an eye out for the quaint, unassuming entrance tucked away neatly on Elizabeth St. Definitely one of the city’s best kept dining secret’s!
