For fans of historic haunts like him, the uncertain future now facing the venerable Four Seasons, whose the rent is expected to triple, is especially troubling. As a restaurateur, Poll knows that it’s mostly up to him and operators like him to preserve these types of places. Here's how he's doing it.

The French connection to New York City is strong and longstanding. There's a colossal neoclassical sculpture in New York Harbor to prove it.
