Inside Casa Cruz, the most expensive new restaurant in New York City
Steve Cuozzo, a columnist for The New York Post, has called private clubs like Casa Cruz a “cancer on the city” where “dining in private places is reserved for the privileged few.” Do New York’s wealthiest aristocrats need yet another exclusive club? According to restauranteur Juan Santa Cruz, Casa Cruz’s 51-year-old Chilean founder, the answer is yes, absolutely. “The pandemic has played a part in this. People have realized that they want to be with others like them,” he said during a recent interview with El PAÍS.
