Opened in June 2022 as a collaboration between Rockwell Group and The Avra Group, Avra Estiatorio offers guests courtyard dining in Time-Life Building’s historic plaza.

The 30-foot floor-to-ceiling windows put the dining rooms and bars on full display, inviting customers in, and providing a jewel box glow at night.

With a neutral palette and organic materials – white oak, limestone, oil-rubbed bronze, linen, rough-hewn stone, water features and greenery – Avra Rockefeller Center is a refined homage to Grecian courtyards.
