Background

Originally opened in 1959 as America’s first seasonal fine-dining restaurant, under the guidance of the late James Beard and many other culinary taste makers, The Four Seasons restaurant paved the way for an era of elegant dining featuring American cuisine, seasonal menus focused on the best fresh ingredients and its unique brand of personalized service.

The brand has been featured in numerous books, including one by Yale historian Paul Freedman, who pronounced The Four Seasons restaurant to be one of the Ten Restaurants That Changed America. A veritable “who’s who” from Wall Street, media, sports and Hollywood have indulged at the famed eatery, known for its unsurpassed “power lunch.”

Potential uses include the ability to open restaurants across the United States in major metropolitan areas.
