Rouge Tomate

A colorful weave of illumination ignites Manhattan’s newest dining hot spot.

Built of the grounds of the old Copacabana nightclub in Manhattan, the luxurious Michelin starred Rouge Tomate Restaurant brings a chic and modern sophistication to the New York dining experience. The two-story restaurant includes a bar/lounge upstairs and fine dining below.

Special features include private suites and a semiprivate dining area that look onto a pool, a central dining room with an open display kitchen, as well as glass artwork which descends from the first floor to the basement unifying the two floors. An extensive dimming system was installed to control all fixtures throughout the space for energy savings during the day as well as evening hours. Sumptuous textures and sustainable design were part of the vision set forth by the design team. The New York Times salutes the space as “one of the prettiest, airiest dining environments this city has seen in some time.”
