Manhattan sophistication meets superb Milanese classics at Casa Lever, the new restaurant from the family that brought you Sant Ambrœus.
Modern art and timeless architecture set the stage for Italian classics, curated wines and creative cocktails. The epitome of Milanese spirit, Casa Lever is where Manhattan goes for a taste of "La Dolce Vita."
Where Milan meets Manhattan Casa Lever marks the union of
the Sant Ambrœus family and Park Avenues Lever House.
Gordon Bunshafts Lever House, the Modernist Park Avenue masterpiece built
in 1951, is today known as the quintessential glass box skyscraper. Casa Lever merges the rich history of modern art and architecture at Lever House with timeless Milanese hospitality, and is destined to become an institution in itself.
