Schenker cooked at Gordon Ramsey at the London when the restaurant earned two Michelin stars. The space? “Refined rustic,” said a rep. The food? “New American with French technique,” the chef explained. The details are few, but at least we know why Schenker moved south of Harlem: “Greenwich Village is the best. It’s where I live.”
