Architecture lovers and foodies come together in a new package that combines a private tour of the Philip Johnson Glass House site
in New Canaan, Connecticut with a three-course dinner at the Four Seasons Restaurant in New York.
This exclusive package is available for $400 per person and includes a two-hour tour with access to five Johnson-designed structures – Glass House, Painting Gallery, Sculpture Gallery, Library/Study and Da Monsta - a collection of contemporary art and expansive views of the 47-acre landscape. After the tour guests head to the Four Seasons Restaurant to indulge in a three-course dinner paired with champagne and wines selected by managing partners Alex von Bidder and Julian Niccolini. Guests are responsible for finding their own way there and back.
The restaurant, which first opened in July 1959, is a Modern jewel with furnishings created by Charles Eames, Garth and Ada Louise Huxtable, Eero Saarinen and Mies Van der Rohe and the modern art masterpieces throughout the five dining rooms including works by Roy Lichtenstein, Juan Miró, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg and Frank Stella. Eighteen pieces of serviceware along with a selection of furnishings are in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. The pool room, shown above, was designed by Philip Johnson and Mies van der Rohe.
