Co-owners Frederick Lesort and Antoine Bleck, opened OPIA in September 2001 bringing their special blend of downtown chic to midtown. With over thirty years of combined restaurant experience, Frederick and Antoine have made their mark in New York City with such successes as Frederick's Bar, The Lemon, Jour et Nuit and Orienta.
OPIA's dramatic and expansive 4,000 square foot interior space is truly spectacular. Etienne Coffiner designed the second floor space, distinguished by 6 beautiful arched windows and 11 foot high ceilings. The space is separated into four distinct areas, each with a unique personality. The Main Lounge and Bar - casually elegant - is the most social area in the space. Just a few steps up from the bar is the Den, a semi-private section with low couches, padded walls and lush fabric, perfect for small dinner parties or cocktails for up to 15 guests.
