Dinner 5pm-9pm

The Bonnefont Restaurant,

in the former New Leaf Cafe location in Fort Tryon Park, is an iconic New York landmark, and a perfect venue for your special experience in the park.

About the bonnefont

Bonnefont's fieldstone cottage was built in the 1930's for John D. Rockefeller and designed by the renowned Olmsted Brothers, grandsons of Frederick Olmsted, designer of New York City's Central Park. The classic structure features a cobblestone exterior, granite archways, and a stunning slate roof with massive oak trusses supporting the interior's 14-foot ceilings. With a recently updated interior, The Bonnefont presents a distinctive vibe of modern cool and Old New York charm.


the good


The Bonnefont is just a few minutes' walk from The Metropolitan Museum of Art Cloisters museum, home to The Met's medieval collection.

Bonnefont—"the good source"—was named after the medieval cloister and herb garden here, as well as its town of origin in France


Who We Are

The Bonnefont features "FreNoCal," a distinctive French

à-la Northern California cuisine created by Executive Chef/Owner Nicole O'Brien, a nod to her Sonoma County wine country roots.

Libations feature a carefully curated selection of wines from small producers in the United States and France; unusual liquors such as single malt scotch from France; and unique small craft beers. Chef Nicole will work with you to create a special event menu, including non-alcoholic and special dietary requests. Both plated and buffet-style options are available.

Lunch, Dinner and Special Event menus will be posted this Spring!
