The original pool upstairs in the former Four Seasons Pool Room remains intact, although the new proprietors have hung a slowly spinning Calder mobile above it and turned the famous cathedral space into a high-end seafood concept called The Pool, complete with acres of blue carpet on the floor, a selection of cocktails, and a million-dollar collection of that favorite hedge-fund libation of yesteryear Château d’Yquem. Rich Torrisi’s diligent, connect-the-dots seafood has its admirable qualities (the oysters, the uni toast, the Meyer-lemon meringue for dessert).
