Childhood friends, John Doherty and Tom Struzzieri, took separate career paths after high school. 30 years later with seasoned experience in the culinary and equestrian fields respectively, they set out to open a restaurant that combined their passions and expertise in the city they love most. After John spent a weekend at friend and acclaimed designer Mark Zeff’s BLACKBARN home in the Hamptons, the anchor of Mark’s eponymous design brand, John found that the aesthetic matched the spirit of his restaurant vision. Now, co-owners John and Tom, in collaboration with the multi-layered BLACKBARN brand, present BlackBarn Restaurant to New York City, where seasonal, rustic fare meets a modern farmhouse atmosphere.

Newly appointed Executive Chef Brian K. Fowler hails from Amityville, Long Island and has deep roots in New York with a lineage extending from Cuba to Jamaica. He brings exciting flavor profiles to dishes that are inspired by his international heritage and travels around the world to Black Barn’s various menus. His focus remains on using ingredients with exceptional quality that are all sourced from local farmers. Of note are his many trips to the bayou which resulted in an appreciation of creole seasoning and Southern flavors. His influence is found in various lunch and dinner dishes and in Black Barn’s extensive brunch menu.

“Here at BLACKBARN Restaurant we’ve paired a menu with refined food, wine, and service in a rustic, casual environment. We source many of our ingredients from local farmers, ranchers, and artisans. Our international wine list is chock full with unique finds, priced just right. Our goal at BLACKBARN is to delight each and every guest at every opportunity with an extraordinary experience. I welcome you to enjoy the fruits of our passion.”

Chef Charlie Palmer

Influenced by his upstate New York childhood experience working in his family’s vegetable garden, Charlie Palmer was an early advocate of farm over factory food. In 1988, he made a landmark commitment to creating dishes featuring regional American ingredients at his sublime three-star Aureole, originally located in a historic townhouse on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Aureole moved 20 years later to a theatre district location in the heart of Times Square at the Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park, where it flourished for 12 years before shifting to a virtual model, Aureole at Home, in June 2020. During its 30 years as a brick-and-mortar restaurant, Aureole earned 13 Michelin stars and two James Beard awards.

Other coast-to-coast locations encompass an expanding collection of award-winning restaurants and luxurious boutique hotels—many in equally significant historical locations and each designed with distinctive personalities to provide unique experiences. These properties include: Charlie Palmer Steak NYC, Charlie Palmer at The Knick and St. Cloud Rooftop at The Knickerbocker Hotel, AVA Social and Spyglass Rooftop at Archer Hotel New York, Willow by Charlie Palmer at Mirbeau Rhinebeck, Charlie Palmer Steak (Washington, DC), Aureole at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Charlie Palmer Steak at Four Seasons Hotel (Las Vegas), Charlie Palmer Steak (Reno, Nevada), Charlie Palmer Steak and Sky & Vine Rooftop at Archer Hotel Napa, and Dry Creek Kitchen at Hotel Healdsburg (Sonoma County in California).

Chef Kenneth “Kenny” McPartlan is a self-taught pit master whose family has run a saloon in the northern part of the South Bronx for three generations. Chef Kenny prides himself in cooking up his own unique style of BBQ, combining elements of Texas, St Louis and Kansas City traditions. This is what you’ll find at his Hudson Smokehouse, the only BBQ place of its kind in the Bronx.

Hudson Smokehouse opened their doors in the first week of March 2020. The pandemic may have shut the dining room down just two weeks later, but that didn’t stop these pit masters. They banded together and grew strong, winning over their Mott Haven community with takeout and delivery. The team also showed their spirit, cooking over 300 meals a day for New Yorkers in need by way of World Central Kitchen during the pandemic.

Hudson Smokehouse continues to serve up their unique BBQ to the Mott Haven community. When you taste their melt in your mouth brisket, you will surely be in need of more BBQ.

Fuku

Chef David Chang

Fuku is the fried chicken joint from chef David Chang – on a mission to change the way people think about fast casual.

Fuku, as a concept, was built off of this really delicious thigh-meat spicy fried chicken sandwich and has since grown to serve a variety of fried chicken offerings, sides, and slushies. guided by many of the same principles that David Chang instills in all his restaurants, Fuku is focused on offering guests approachable, tasty food that draws from both Asian and American influences.

What started as a secret sandwich at Momofuku Noodle Bar in NYC soon grew into FUKUSANITY when Fuku opened its own store in 2015 in the east village.

Over the ensuing years, Fuku opened storefronts at Hudson Yards and Rockefeller Center in NYC, as well as stadiums, arenas, and ghost kitchens throughout the country.
