Cooked with Love since 1995
Orienta first was opened in 1995, as a melange of two New York city grand establishments: "Le Bilboquet, and "Le Colonial" where I worked for many years.
The cozy Bilboquet ambiance, with an inspired Colonial/ Vietnamese menu, resulted in a wonderful success, and raved reviews.
25 years later, by popular demand, and after the right space became available, next to our other French bistro, "Le Penguin"...
the stars and the moon aligned, for the rebirth of.... Orienta.
This time it is a family affair, with Adrien, my son, as the executive chef, with his impressive resume (Le Bernardin, Royal Monceau, Guy Savoy, Soho House LA , Le Penguin, and Le Fat Poodle), his beautiful wife Kate, as the maitre d', and my amazing wife Suzanne as the director of operations, and me , as the conductor, or as my wife likes to say:" the cherry on top".
