After years of operating in the same iconic Time Warner Center in New York City, Scott Gerber, CEO of hospitality and nightlife company, Gerber Group and restaurateur and Chef Marc Murphy, Chef and Owner of Benchmarc Restaurants by Marc Murphy (Landmarc and Ditch Plains) and Benchmarc Events by Marc Murphy, have brought their restaurant and bar expertise together to open Kingside, located at the new Viceroy Hotel on New York City's famed and bustling West 57th Street.
Kingside, located on street level of Viceroy New York, features Chef Marc Murphy's interpretation of New American Cooking, alongside Gerber’s renowned bar program of handcrafted cocktails. The accessible menu takes its inspiration from Murphy’s childhood, highlighting items that trace back to his French heritage, Italian roots, American schooling and his love of travel. In addition to an extensive raw and crudo bar, appetizers include a variety of toasts, charcuterie and cheeses, salads and small plates, while larger entrees feature pastas, fish and meats with an emphasis on sharing, including some items, such as a 32 oz. Cowboy Ribeye and a Roasted Chicken meant to be ordered for two.
The wine program at Kingside emphasizes the global scope of the menu with an international selection of approximately 100 bottles of sparkling, white and red, offered by the half and full bottle, as well as the quartino.
The bar at Kingside, located in the front of the restaurant, features an extensive selection of regionally brewed craft beers, as well as a wide range of small-batch spirits and liquors. The cocktail menu includes an ever-changing selection of innovative cocktails highlighting market fresh ingredients in addition to classic cocktails with a modern twist.
Chef Marc Murphy
Ask Chef Marc Murphy where he grew up and he’ll fire off a list of cosmopolitan destinations — Milan, Paris, Villefranche, Washington DC, Rome and Genoa — “and that’s before I turned 12,” he’ll explain. This dizzying list of hometowns served as an excellent education in French and Italian cuisine, though as a teenager this was not his first passion. When the reality hit that he didn’t have the funds to become a professional racecar driver, Murphy followed his brother to the Institute of Culinary Education. Following graduation, he apprenticed at restaurants in France and Italy before returning to New York where he landed a job as a line cook at Terrance Brennan’s Prix Fixe. He stayed there for almost two years, working his way through every station in the kitchen and forging a professional bond with Brennan’s Sous Chefs Joseph Fortunato and David Pasternak.
