What’s changed at the former Four Seasons

September 16, 2017

If you are curious to know what has changed inside the old Four Seasons restaurant space but would like to be spared a pricey dinner tab, this Architectural Record slideshow is for you. We’ll let the photos speak for themselves, but suffice it to say the changes to this landmarked interior are not “tweaks” in our opinion. Evidently the Landmarks Preservation Commission is not too pleased either. The tenant, Major Food Group Company, and their interior design team will appear before the LPC at a public hearing on Tuesday September 19 to legalize the installation of a reception desk at the ground-floor lobby and alterations at the Pool Room Mezzanine, which were done without permits.
