Converging gastronomy with art and fun ... the legacy of LeCirque. From pasta primavera (Sirio invented it) to world-renowned decadent desserts of creme brûlée, crepes, and molten chocolate cakes, Le Cirque's ubiquitous reputation for presenting its fine dining fare with whimsy and fun, landed it on the map of must-dine destinations in New York for gliteratti and foodies alike. Although the landmark restaurant's NYC doors are now closed, BRG is pleased to offer this curated collection from the famed restaurant which range from fine (and fun) works of art to custom Limoges dinnerware and everything in between.

▪️Rare & very large original paintings by Milton Glaser (American, 1929 -2020) including Crying Clown, Elephant & Trainer, and Human Cannonball, as well as several others
▪️ Original Le Cirque monkey panel paintings by Kenneth Stern
▪️ Original Le Cirque Chinese porcelain monkeys | Hear No Evil 🙉, See No Evil 🙈, Speak No Evil 🙊
▪️ Robert Cenedella (b. 1940) "Heinz 57" artist proof signed to Mauro Maccioni

▪️ A very large Charlie Chaplin: Il Circo movie poster

For over four decades, NY's Le Cirque, founded and owned by restauranteur Sirio Maccioni (a James Beard Foundation Lifetime Achievment Award winner), was a bastion of fine dining whose list of clientele included the who's who of celebrities, royalty, and celebutants including: Princess Grace, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Sofia Loren, Alec Baldwin, Frank Sinatra, Julia Child, and Presidents Reagan and Clinton.

In addition to its A-lister clientele, LeCirque’s kitchen was a springboard for the careers of prestigious celebrity pastry, sous, and executive chefs such as Jacques Torres, Michael Lomonaco, Daniel Boulud, Geoffrey Zakarian, and the list goes on. Sirio opened the first Le Cirque (“the circus”) location in 1974 and moved to various locations in New York City as the landmark restaurant outgrew its various addresses. No matter the location, monkeys and circus themes remained a design staple of the iconic restaurant. While the New York City location has closed, Le Cirque's international locations (Dubai, Mumbai, Bangalore, and New Delhi) and it's Las Vegas locations remain open and operational.
