Located on the ground floor of New York City’s landmark Empire State Building, STATE Grill & Bar must appeal to two demographics: tourists visiting the iconic skyscraper and office workers and locals looking for a chef-inspired lunch or dinner.
Executive Chef Morgan Jarrett bridges the two by balancing seasonal dishes geared to adventurous tastes with more familiar steaks, pastas and desserts. Signature cocktails are also a draw, and she works closely with the bar to create happy hour food that reflects her culinary focus.
Listen as Jarrett shares why farm-to-table cooking defines her menu, how she’s breaking out of her culinary comfort zone and what she’s planning for STATE Grill & Bar in 2023.
