2. Four Seasons

After over 50 years, Manhattan’s famous Four Seasons restaurant closed its home at the Seagram Building in Midtown. Four Seasons — which has long been known as a celebrity hotspot that offered a fine dining experience — closed after a long-standing conflict with the building’s co-owner and investor, Aby Rosen. Rosen regarded Four Seasons as part of the past and chose not to renew the restaurant’s lease when it ended in 2016.

The first restaurant of its kind to have a seasonally changing menu, Four Seasons has since opened a new location within walking distance of its previous location. Taking over its former home is a seafood restaurant called The Pool, which maintains a contemporary and elegant design, keeping the marble pool as the centerpiece in the room.
