153 West 51st Street, New York City

“Sounds and scents swirl in the evening air,” wrote the towering French poet Charles Baudelaire in Harmonie du soir. An elegant private salon in the pulsing heart of Manhattan perfectly symbolizes the bridge that both links and separates intimate and effusive, subtle and vibrant, fleeting and enduring. Renowned chef Eric Ripert will create expressly for this special occasion a seasonal, 4-course gastronomic seascape. Our internationally-acclaimed Music from Copland House ensemble will pair Chef Ripert’s exquisite Carte du soir with an exhilarating musical menu of works by French icons Claude Debussy and Gabriel Faure, and American Francophiles Ned Rorem, Samuel Barber, Marc Blitzstein, Daron Hagen, and George Gershwin. These sold-out culinary and musical collaborations have been featured and acclaimed over the years in The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg News, The New York Times, Food and Wine, Westchester magazine and many others. Please join us at Le Bernardin Privé for a memorable evening of impeccable epicurean and musical harmonizing!
