On Wednesday October 15th, Sirio Maccioni, creator of the iconic Le Cirque restaurants, hosted a magnificent 40th anniversary celebration in New York.
Sirio Maccioni first opened the doors of Le Cirque on March 24, 1974. Since then, the restaurant has gone on to become an iconic New York City institution, delighting guests with hallmark service and outstanding dining for 40 celebrated years.
In honor of Le Cirque’s 40th anniversary, Le Cirque hosted a commemorative dinner featuring a four course meal prepared by some of Le Cirque’s most renowned chefs from past to present including David Bouley, Daniel Boulud, Jacques Torres and current Executive Chef Raphael Francois. Meanwhile, Christophe Salin, President and CEO of Domaines Barons de Rothschild, led a discussion of the evening’s wine pairings curated by Pasternak Wine Imports.
Also attending the dinner was Dr. Claudio Silvestri, Chairman and CEO of Premier Resorts & Hotels, who was responsible for bringing Le Cirque to Casa de Campo. The Beach Club by Le Cirque opened at Minitas Beach in 2008, while La Caña by Il Circo opened in the Casa de Campo Hotel in December 2009, as part of the US$40 million redesign.
