Just in Time for New Year's: The new RALPH LAUREN RESTAURANT, the POLO BAR, New York

"I have to figure out where I'm going to sit for the rest of my life," said Ralph Lauren dressed in a perfectly-fitted suit of Scottish tweed and gold chained pocket watch.   Ever handsome and stylish at 75 years young, Ralph Lauren's The Polo Bar, which is scheduled to open in time for New Year's Eve, is just steps away from his flagship store at Fifth Avenue and 55th Street. Ralph Lauren describes it as "It's tradition with flair."  "The food you're going to come here for is really the best I can do," said Mr. Lauren.  

The Polo Bar has a Old World, decidedly American aristocracy feel, very warm and inviting, the perfect place to come with loved ones or friends on New Year's Eve.  "You've got to be someone who pays attention to the details," Mr. Lauren said, and isn't it those gorgeous details we have come to expect from Ralph Lauren.  Happily he always exceeds our expectations and gives us more than we could imagine, that is the essence of great design, and oh so, perfectly Ralph Lauren.

"It was not my idea to be trendy.  I don't want to be the hot restaurant.  I want to be the restaurant you want to go to twice a week."  -Ralph Lauren

If you live in or are coming to New York, get your iPhone out and make reservations now.   For me, I have added it to my list of reasons why I want to move to New York, or visit very soon!

I wish you all a very Happy New Year!

I hope it's lovely where you are...

  2. Rie, thank you for posting this. The exemplary & iconic Ralph Lauren does it again ! This is one place I would not miss when visiting NYC. I sat next to him once, during breakfast at the Plaza Hotel. And who does not admire him? A true American self-made man who everyone loves. Bravo !!!

    1. Marsha, The Plaza Hotel for breakfast and seated next to Ralph Lauren... a lovely, stylish, morning! He really is exemplary, I can't name another designer who has branded their look and lifestyle living, where anyone can describe anything by saying... "You know, it looks like Ralph Lauren." and everyone knows exactly what they mean. Happy New Year's to you! xx Rié
