Chef Frederic Duca

Racines NY in the NY Times!


We're proud and happy that our neighbors at 94 Chambers Street have received a lovely 2-star review from Pete Wells in the Times! Racines NY was conceived by master sommelier Arnaud Tronche with help from partners David Lanher of Racines, Paris and CSW's David Lillie. After two years of searching and six months of construction, M. Tronche and chef Frederic Duca have created a vibrant and informal, but elegant and sophisticated restaurant where the superb cuisine is matched by an extraordinary wine list built around our favorite organic, biodynamic and natural wines.
