Recette Private Dining Launches in Midst of East Harlem Gentrification Delivers Michelin-Quality Expectations in Unexpected Neighborhood.

We give the room a bit of a romantic atmosphere. It's fine dining, but with a more casual attitude.

Recette Private Dining announces its grand opening, providing New Yorkers the unique opportunity to experience Michelin-quality, modern, French cuisine in an exclusive setting. This Spanish Harlem gem occupies a most unexpected location: afterhours at Brian Ghaw's Savoy Bakery on 110th street.

The talented trio (Recette maitre d', Brian Ghaw; Gordon Ramsay alumnus Jesse Schenker; and Thomas Keller alumna Christina Lee) transforms the quaint, brick-lined interior into Recette, offering guests 5-, 7-, or 10-course tasting menus of a caliber comparable to some of the most highly-rated restaurants in the city.

As Ghaw explains, "We give the room a bit of a romantic atmosphere. It's fine dining, but with a more casual attitude." Guests can BYOB or let their sommelier make wine selections for each course. Recette can also create custom menus for clients to enjoy in the privacy of their homes or at a venue of their choice. It's fine dining, but with a more casual attitude.

Executive Chef Jesse Schenker honed his precision and artistry in some of the most heralded kitchens in the country, including the James Beard House, and most recently, the Michelin-starred Gordon Ramsay at The London Hotel. In French, 'recette' means 'recipe' and Schenker creates each of these with expert sophistication and a balance of ingredients in mind.
Within the two months since their launch, Recette has been featured in NYC's Daily Candy, Blackbook Magazine, and has participated in coveted events including City Harvest's "Summer in the City" and Fame Game / Zink Magazine's "This World is Yours." To celebrate their tremendous initial success, the team at Recette will be hosting a canapé party at Savoy Bakery in late September/early October. Please check their website for further updates on this free event.

Recette Private Dining is located in the Savoy Bakery after hours at 170 East 110th st. (between Lexington and 3rd Avenue). For reservations and inquiries, please contact Recette at 347.263.7277 or info @
