The Four Seasons Gets Rid of Its Picasso; Racines’ Summer Menu

The Four Seasons’ Picasso tapestry that has hung in the restaurant’s hallway since 1959 will be removed after all. Aby Rosen, the building’s owner is allegedly not a fan of the painting, calling it a “rag.” He’ll now fund its removal and restoration. [NYP]

Racines, the Tribeca outpost of the Paris wine bar of the same name, has a new “early summer” menu, with dishes like wild-morel mushrooms and lobster with squid ink capellini. Reservations here. [Grub Street]

American Express will open two new Centurion Lounges in San Francisco’s and New York’s LaGuardia airports, later this year. The company partnered with chefs Christopher Kostow and Cedric Vongerichten to create the seasonal menus in California and New York, respectively. More information here. [Grub Street]
