From immersive video installations to fine dining, the experience is one you won't forget, as it "takes you around the world without ever leaving the dinner table," the restaurant's website reads.
"Journey introduces theatrical gastronomy to New York City, a wholly original entertainment and dining concept blending fine dining with an immersive experience created by a world-class team of video, fashion and Broadway creators," Co-Owner/Founder Marc Routh exclusively tells Morning Honey.
"In our increasingly fragmented society where we spend so much time isolated behind our various screens and devices, there is a heightened desire to join together. As a Broadway producer, I am aware that we’re competing for our audiences’ time with social experiences, so bringing together great food, design and performance in a playful integrated setting offers a unique and satisfying challenge," Routh adds.
Journey combines four separate experiences under one roof, which makes it all the more fun!
Journey 360 combines a five course pre fixe dinner created by our award-winning international chef Diego Negri with state of the art 360-degree projection technology. The adventure is guided by a live performer with the guests seated at a communal table.
Journey Voyager and Journey Odyssey are different dining experiences utilizing tabletop projections. Patrons are seated at their own individual tables in an intimate room enveloped by the Dawn to Dusk Mural.
Stella Lounge features cocktails accompanied by comic bar top videos, inventive craft cocktails, and ever-changing content on the video “paintings” in a cozy lounge designed by Tony Award winner David Gallo.
Journey A La Carte places Chef Diego Negri’s inspired culinary creations centerstage in a setting featuring 3 D Models of famous architecture from around the globe and dinner plates designed with an augmented reality component.
Additionally, Chef Diego Negri, who has worked at notable restaurants such as St. Theo’s, Lupa, Marea and Eleven Madison Park, is in charge of the menu, which is not to be missed.
"The menu I created is an interaction and accumulation of my life experiences, that I have learned throughout my journey — resulting in the creation of authentic dishes," Negri exclusively tells Morning Honey. "For now, I recommend trying a bit of everything to experience the originality and the combination of textures that our dishes offer to your palate."
This one-of-a-kind restaurant, which was designed by Broadway vet David Gallo, was conceptualized by Co-Owners Alex Cesaria (NYC and Aspen Restauranteur) and Marc Routh (8-Time Tony Award Winning Broadway Producer), is not to be missed!
