Gerber Group Takes Over Food and Beverage at Hotel 50 Bowery

Posted on: October 7th, 2019 at 5:11 am by

Celebrity chef Dale Talde, who made a name for himself on Top Chef, dissolved his seven-year-old restaurant back in January of this year. With it, the surrender of culinary activities elsewhere, including food and beverage oversight at Joie de Vivre’s Hotel 50 Bowery.

Now, new management.

No longer in the hands of the hotel, the Gerber Group (TWA Hotel at JFK) has assumed responsibility of the food and beverage program at the 22-story lodge. That includes rooftop bar, The Crown, as well as the Museum of Chinese in America annex and The Concept basement club formerly known as Green Lady (which got in trouble two years ago with its opium den theme).

“We are thrilled about this new partnership with the Gerber Group and positive impact it will have on Hotel 50 Bowery and the Chinatown community,” said Lauren Chu, on behalf of the ownership group of Hotel 50 Bowery.
