NYC’s Beloved La Goulue is Returning
La Goulue has been a long time staple of the Upper East Side in New York City. As the original French restaurant in our city, they set the design precedence for many of the French restaurants that exist here today. In 2009, they lost their lease and had to close their doors. Owner Jean Denoyer went on a hunt to find a new location to recreate the beloved brasserie that Upper East Side locals loved. In efforts to recreate the vintage vibe and atmosphere, all the original millwork paneling and light fixtures were salvaged and stored away for safekeeping. Eight years later, La Goulue has found a new home within their old neighborhood.
Our team of architects at Blueberry Studios had the honor of working on the design of the long awaited revived La Goulue French Brasserie. Months of meetings, budgeting and construction explorations with Blueberry Builders has resulted in a true design-build product. With open lines of communications between our teams of architects and builders, we were able to streamline the project timeline. La Goulue is nearing completion in it’s new home at 29 East 61st Street, complete with the original elements from the old location.
