Ford Fry's Bar Margot Is Now Open at the Four Seasons [Updated]

After a last-minute hitch, the restaurant is in business.

Following a delay at the 11th hour, Ford Fry's newest venture is open inside the Four Seasons hotel in Midtown. Bar Margot, a collaboration with chef Robert Gerstenecker and barmen Greg Best and Paul Calvert, was set to begin service at 11 a.m., but it was delayed for a few hours for an unspecified reason. The official word from the hotel is that "Margot had to sneak a last-minute smoke in the bathroom." For those out of the loop, the restaurant's name is inspired Margot Tenenbaum, the ultra-hip, super-depressed secret chain-smoker from Wes Anderson's The Royal Tenenbaums.

Among the dishes on the menu are tagliolini cacio e pepe, made from housemade noodles and tossed with black pepper, pasta parmiagiano reggiano, and pecorino romano, and a take on the Monte Cristo, with cotto ham, smoked turkey, and field greens stuffed between butter-toasted brioche and topped with raspberry jam. At the bar, look for the Gin Margot (a variation on a gin and tonic that includes sherry), Lady Victoria (a "fresh and garden-esque" vodka-based drink), Mercy Street (a "souped-up Old Fashioned with a kick of Irish whiskey"), and more.

Lunch and dinner at Bar Margot is served Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to midnight, Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., and Sunday from 3 p.m. to midnight. A live DJ will spin records each Friday from 9 p.m. to midnight. See the restaurant's full menu below.
