The Lion

The Lion restaurant in New York is home to the culinary creations of Executive Chef/Proprietor John DeLucie. The space – once home to early cabaret acts by a young Barbra Streisand – was conceptualized as "Miss Havisham meets Harry Potter." BHDM created a narrative in which the restaurant was passed through generations of the “Lion family.” Within a carefully crafted classic and historic shell, an eclectic mix of art, furnishings, and lighting were selected to create a living collage of this imagined family tree.

With an emphasis on an intimate, almost residential atmosphere, The Lion’s warm and eclectic interiors are at once timeless and relevant to the fashion forward New York scene.
