Brasserie Restaurant in NYC

Located in New York City's Seagram Building, the Brasserie Restaurant combines slight curves with angles.  Designed by architects Diller Scofidio & Renfro, the restaurant has no view to the outside or street.  Instead monitors at the entry and above the bar display video-recorded images of diners as they enter.  A 50' sheet of glass is propped up behind dining tables as an ode to windows.  A slightly bowed form covered in wooden veneer provides a backdrop to more tables, contrasting with the angular lines of the booth seating and tables.
