ModernHaus SoHo has expanded its F&B offering with the addition of New York neighbourhood restaurant Twenty Three Grand. Dreamt up by David Rabin and James Julius, and helmed by Chef Ashley Rath, the restaurant’s menu showcases global flavours and elevated classics with Mediterranean flair, ranging from caviar and angel hair pasta, to roasted salmon with pastrami spice.

Designed by stylist and interior design consultant Melissa Bowers and taking inspiration both from Philip Johnson’s Glass House and classic European atrium cafes, the restaurant itself is a 2,700ft² indoor-outdoor space, primed to become an ideal spot for al fresco dining in SoHo.

Twenty Three Grand Greenhouse Interiors

The restaurant’s main space is a retractable glass greenhouse, with a clear roof and sides allowing for guests to dine under blue skies or beneath the stars.

Tucked behind the main dining room, the lower terrace is a lively outdoor oasis surrounded by greenery and home to KAWS’ Good Intentions sculpture. In cooler months, the space will be complete with enclosed, heated yurts.

Twenty Three Grand Outdoor Terrace

A few steps up from the lower terrace and just beyond the dining room, the back bar serves up light bites and cocktails, while the space’s verdant upper terraces – featuring a greenery-adorned swing, grass, benches and backgammon table – overlook the bustling corners of SoHo and TriBeCa.
