The storied restaurant designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Philip Johnson opened in the Seagram Building in 1959 and was photographed that year by Ezra Stoller. Now, it’s the end of an era as the lease is not being renewed. Holly Brubach’s Op-Ed piece in The New York Times describes the restaurant as “a most American experience.”
