Le Cirque, the legendary East Midtown classic from James Beard Lifetime Achievement award-winner Sirio Maccioni, just celebrated its 40th anniversary. Long hailed for its artfully presented, haute French fare and robust wine roster, the menu, under chef Raphael Francois, emphasizes seasonality and innovation, with dishes like rack of lamb with asparagus and Treviso radicchio and caviar-topped steak tartare. The Adam Tihany designed, circus-themed space features a giant “big top” light fixture in the dining room (where jackets are required) and a stunning all-glass bar.
