Guest Chef Series at The Musket Room Kicks Off with Atsushi Tanaka

The New York City-based Michelin-starred restaurant will team up with guest chefs for a year-round dinner series

Atsushi Tanaka of Paris will be the first in a series of guest chefs in the Musket Room kitchen. 

Beginning Monday, February 23, chef Matt Lambert of Michelin-starred Musket Room in New York City will debut a guest chef dinner series during which Lambert and another chef will team up to prepare a multiple-course meal.

First up is Atsushi Tanaka of Restaurant A.T in Paris, who will split an eight-course tasting menu with chef Lambert.

Each chef will contribute four dishes, presented alternately throughout the meal.

Tickets for multiple seatings, beginning at 6 p.m., are available for $100 per guest.

Reservations may be made by calling the restaurant or sending an email to

The menu for the very first collaborative dinner includes Ora King salmon with citrus, sunflower seeds, and herbs; and quail with bread sauce, blackberries, and onions from chef Lambert, and duck with onion and Chinese artichokes from chef Tanaka.

Chef Tanaka, a Japanese- and French-trained chef, has worked in several of Europe’s Michelin-starred kitchens, including Pierre Gagnaire in Paris, De Pastorale in Belgium, Oud Sluis in the Netherlands, and Quique Dacosta in Spain. 


Chef Lambert’s Guest Chef Series dinners, which were, in fact, inspired by a meal at Tanaka’s Restaurant A.T, will be held throughout the year.
