New York, NY (January 10, 2022) – On Monday, January 9, The McKittrick Hotel (530 West 27th Street, NYC), home of Sleep No More, celebrated Opening Night of At The Illusionist’s Table, an intimate experience where magic and mentalism intertwine with fine dining.
Notables in attendance included André De Shields, Bad Cinderella’s Linedy Genao, Parade’s Micaela Diamond, Conrad Ricamora, and Claybourne Elder.
Created and hosted by internationally-acclaimed illusionist, Scott Silven, performances of the one-of-a-kind experience will be exended in the hotel’s cozy Alpine escape, The Hideout at Gallow Green, through April 2, 2023.
“After completing my 2022 world tour, it is a great privilege to return to my home away from home at The McKittrick Hotel. I’m delighted to be hosting New York audiences once again and invite them to join me for an extraordinary evening this winter,” said Silven.
Following its debut at the prestigious Edinburgh Festival, At The Illusionist’s Table made its New York premiere in the spring of 2018 in The Club Car at The McKittrick Hotel. Following a sold out 12-week engagement, Silven returned that fall for another extended sold out residency. December 2022 and January 2023 performances quickly sold out, leading to the decision to extend the residency through April 2.
“A magical, unforgettable theatrical meal… not to be missed.”

“Wow, Wow, Wow!”

During the performance, enigmatic host Scott Silven leads guests through an evening of culinary delights interwoven with illusion, mentalism, and storytelling. Senses will appear to deceive as candles flicker, whisky pours, and conversation stirs throughout a three-course dinner filled with unbelievable illusions.
Tickets for At The Illusionist’s Table are $295 per person and include whisky tasting, appetizers, and a sumptuous meal in the hotel’s seasonal rooftop restaurant. Cloud 9 tickets include specially selected wine pairings with each course for an additional $100 per person. Hot cocktails and other seasonal drinks are available for purchase from The Hideout’s bar.
The dinner menu is crafted by Executive Chef Pascal Le Seac’h. Hailing from the French Alps, Le Seac’h has been based in New York for more than 20 years. He first trained at the Michelin-starred Le Chantecler in Nice, before helming the stoves for celebrated restaurateurs André Balazs at The Sunset Beach Resort and Keith McNally at Balthazar and Pastis. Over the course of his distinguished career, Le Seac’h has also worked for awarded chefs Daniel Boulud at his iconic namesake restaurant, Daniel, and Jean-Michel Diot at Park Bistro.
At The Illusionist’s Table performances will be offered from Wednesdays through Mondays at 7:30PM. The running time is 2 hours with no intermission.
Sleep No More and Speakeasy Magick are also currently running at the hotel. For tickets and information, visit www.mckittrickhotel.com.
