Hailing from the French region of Alsace, Chef Kreuther's cooking throughout his illustrious career has been deeply rooted in his Alsatian heritage and classic French culinary technique. His culinary approach is driven by an unwavering commitment to excellence and imbued with thoughtful craftsmanship and luxury—the same defining qualities synonymous with the Baccarat name, both as a hotel and world- class artisans, whose legendary factory is located near Kreuther’s childhood home.

"From his Alsatian roots to his classical French training, Chef Kreuther is an ideal culinary partner whose level of skill and expertise is perfectly aligned with the legendary Baccarat brand," says Hermann Elger, Chief Operating Officer of Baccarat Hotels and Resorts and Managing Director of Baccarat Hotel New York. “His enduring relevance in New York City continues with this very special collaboration, and we are thrilled to offer our guests an enhanced dining experience throughout the hotel,” he adds.

"Baccarat Hotel takes an elegant and sophisticated approach to hospitality that has similarly defined my career and my restaurant—prioritizing high quality ingredients, fine craftsmanship and beautiful presentation," says Chef Kreuther.

At Baccarat Hotel, Chef Kreuther’s menu will predominantly feature new dishes created exclusively for the property, along with several Alsatian signatures from Gabriel Kreuther Restaurant, such as his Kougelhopf, Tarte Flambee and house-made Country Sausage. 

New Baccarat Hotel NYC Menu Highlights Include:

  • Petit Pâté Feuillété "Baccarat": duck, guinea hen, foie gras, veal, green salad | Chef's elevated take on an old Alsatian staple "farmhand food" to pay homage to the craftsman of the Baccarat factory, where workers would enjoy these savory pastries for their meals. **Limited quantities available daily.**
  • Handcrafted Quail & Pistachio Ballotine with green cabbage & gruyere salad
  • Slow-Poached Organic Farm Egg "In A Jar" with Maine lobster, salsify, lobster froth

  • Crispy Shrimp Lollipops with lemongrass ginger sauce
  • Smoked Eel Croquettes with harissa aioli

  • Baba for Two: aged rum, whipped vanilla mascarpone, gold leaf. Classic baba served tableside with guest's choice of spirit. When Polish king Stanislaw Orlov was exiled to Lorraine, he was introduced to traditional kugelhoupf cake. After he complained it was too dry, it was soaked in wine, resulting in the first baba.
