Casa Dani, which translates to Dani's House, takes its name from the idea behind southern Spain's naming of small family restaurants as if they were the Chef's home. When you walk through the doors of Casa Dani, you’re walking into Chef Dani Garcia’s home to discover avant-garde cuisine and a menu featuring items inspired by Spain's Mediterranean south. Chef Dani is one of Spain's most internationally renowned chefs, having achieved 3 Michelin stars and the Bib Gourmand in 2015. Garcia's culinary style mixes iconoclastic flavors, textures, and even temperatures without losing sight of his Andalusian culinary roots and the philosophy that fine dining can be fresh, fun, and an intimate experience.

Hidden Leaf is the newest restaurant concept from Brooklyn restaurateur Josh Cohen (Chez Ma Tante, Lilia, Saint Vitus) and Midnight Theatre partner Warren Adcock. The beautiful restaurant is tucked inside the exciting, new entertainment venue Midnight Theatre, which will launch with a variety of talent and shows later this fall. Chef Chai Trivedi (Pranna, Tamarind, Buddakan, Eventi Hotel) draws inspiration from southern China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam to create a shareable pan-Asian dining adventure. The team also includes internationally renowned bartender Iain Griffiths, co-founder of the wildly acclaimed & influential Dandelyan & White Lyan bars in London. Griffiths will be making his first permanent foray into the NYC drinks scene with the opening of Hidden Leaf’s cocktail bar and its street level companion, an intimate aperitivo bar Midnight Cafe.
