Modellus Novus’ Rooftop Pavilion blurs the distinction between art installation and an exquisite, yet functional, dining experience. Perched atop a building on New York City’s Upper East Side overlooking Central Park, the exclusive six-seat omakase counter is grounded by a contemplative rock garden.
Open to the elements while still entirely covered from inclement weather, the open-air dining concept allows for flourishes such as traditional Japanese outdoor cooking, as well as the exotic experience of dining as snow begins to fall.
