Major Food Group (MFG) has officially opened the doors to ZZ’s Club in New York.
Designed by Ken Fulk, the two-floor members club in Manhattan’s Hudson Yards neighborhood offers a highly exclusive experience complete with white-glove amenities, various social spaces, and two restaurants: ZZ’s, a signature Japanese eatery, and Carbone Privato, the inaugural private outpost of MFG’s iconic Italian concept.
“At the edge of Manhattan, members are whisked into another world—a European adventure where gilded luxury meets the tropical glamour of the Amalfi Coast to create an elevated dreamscape,” Fulk describes.
On the club’s first floor, members are welcomed by the tropical ZZ’s Bar, which anchors ZZ’s restaurant. The double-height room features an aquatic mural by Boyd Reath and gilded palm fronds overhead that create an otherworldly ambiance. On the second floor, Carbone Privato radiates Italian glamour with damask velvets, burnished brass, elaborate chandeliers, and banquette seating.
A grand staircase leads to the Clam Bar, an evolution of ZZ’s Clam Bar that opened in the Greenwich Village in 2013. The Clam Bar serves as the club’s living room and features a series of artwork by contemporary Italian artist Francesco Clemente, along with a custom handpainted bar that evokes the Duomo di Firenze.
Leo’s Lounge, another refined gathering space, exudes Medici opulence with classical motifs and secluded seating niches, while the Founders’ Room—exclusive to founding members of ZZ’s Club—is bedecked with Baroque-inspired elements.
