Your Curated Life: Fleming Interview
27 East 62nd Street
Ronald Perelman and restaurateur Philippe Delgrange, the masterminds behind Le Bilboquet, have opened their small and exclusive restaurant Fleming to the public, serving Provencal-style offerings in a 50-seat intimate environment. Earlier last month, Luxury Attaché sat down with Giuseppe, the restaurant’s sommelier.
Can you tell us about the restaurant’s eclectic artwork?
All of the artwork was curated or commissioned specifically for the restaurant. For instance, the piece above your table was painted by Oscar Murillo, a Colombian artist who currently lives and works in London.
What about some of the larger art pieces?
Many of those pieces came from the U.K., such as the brass entryway vestibule and the terrazzo column pieces near the restaurant’s restrooms.
Why, in this digital age where everything is on social media and restaurants focus on dishes that are “Instagrammable” would a newly opened restaurant want to keep themselves so private and without press?
The owners truly wanted this restaurant to cater to a more exclusive crowd, where even celebrities can be seen and not bothered.
