Monarch - New York, NY We are already tingling with anticipation about the opening of Monarch, slated for early November. The very first restaurant by New York City hospitality masterminds Eric Marx and Lisle Richards is a stylistic collaboration with interior design firm Roman and Williams in which a 1930s industrial era warehouse has been reinvented as a gorgeously sophisticated Fresh Market American dining experience with the fabulous Chef Michael Citarella behind the menu.
