While most New Yorkers see a washer and dryer as the ultimate amenity, those dropping $40 million on an apartment shouldn’t settle for any less than a building with a private, in-house Michelin-starred chef. Shaun Hergatt, who worked at Michelin-starred Juni until it closed this spring, has found a comfortable new home for his next restaurant: an entire floor of 96-story 432 Park Avenue, the soon-to-be-tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere. Only residents and their guests will have access to his cooking — no plebeians! — giving a whole new meaning to real-estate goals.
