Exploring Global Dining at Intersect by Lexus

Intersect By Lexus

Not just good eats, but luxury cars, too.

If you’re heading to the New York Auto Show this week, you may want to treat yourself after a long day at the Javits Center. Intersect by Lexus is located in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District. You can relax and have a bite, a handcrafted cocktail or a great meal from one of New York’s greatest kitchens featuring top chefs from around the world.

At Intersect, Lexus wants you to experience the Lexus lifestyle without having to get behind the wheel. Sure, you will see a Lexus or a wall filled with car parts but it’s not a dealer and there are no pushy salesmen around. It’s a place of fine dining, culture, and entertainment.

All in the Details

Lexus is all about the finer details. And Intersect is no different. Designs and details define the space, from framed photos that show behind the scenes work and sketches of Lexus models to a wall of car parts that adorn a hallway. The uniquely beautiful design of Intersect’s NYC location was created by interior designer Masamichi Katayama and the Wonderwall team. There are two other locations in the world; Tokoyo and Dubai.

Even the Restrooms are Interesting

One of the Lexus core values is called “Omotenashi,” a commitment to guests, creating exceptional hospitality. The brand aims to create a great experience for guests. So it’s no wonder that even the restrooms would be unique. The restroom features a beautiful marble communal sink surrounded by private bathroom stalls. The style is very modern and minimalist.
