Food and Drink

Metropolis is a vibrant contemporary American restaurant from Marcus Samuelsson and Executive Chef Ed Tinoco. A stunning New York destination inside PAC NYC, Metropolis will feature a menu inspired by the treasured culinary traditions of the city’s five boroughs.

Designed by David Rockwell, Metropolis features a dazzling dining room and bustling bar, a landscaped outdoor terrace, and a lobby lounge featuring free-to-the-public artistic programming on the Clare and Vartan Gregorian Lobby Stage. Located on the theater level, the MacMillan Rehearsal Lounge will become Marcus Samuelsson’s Wine Barre in the evenings and offer a curated selection of wines, local beers, and snacks.

Metropolis opens in Fall 2023.

Starting September 19 until the official opening of Metropolis later this fall, the Marcus Samuelsson Restaurant Group will offer refreshments and light fare in the future Metropolis dining room from two hours before and following performances. Choose from a thoughtfully curated menu of wines, local beers and select light bites, and take your seat in the dining room or on the terrace.

During intermission, refreshments and snacks will be available on the theater level in the MacMillan Rehearsal Lounge and future home of Marcus Samuelsson’s Wine Barre. Please note that food is not permitted in the theaters.
