Ralph Lauren Polo Bar

Designer Ralph Lauren is becoming a restaurateur for the first time at the age of 75. A Bronx native, born Ralph Lifshitz, who brought the world fashion fantasies about gentlemanly sports and equestrian pursuits is opening a Polo Bar a stone’s throw away from the flagship store at 5th Avenue and 55th Street, as reported by the New York Times.

While dining trends have moved downtown and toward the more complex offerings (ie. artistry on a plate) Ralph Lauren doesn’t mind if his restaurant is a bit “old fashioned, ” with basic yet elegant offerings like crab cakes, corned beef sandwiches and steaks.

The interior of the Polo Bar reflects the spirit of the fashion brand, with a whole lot of wood, equestrian pictures, amber light and lots of green.
