We’ve already seen a few huge openings this fall — Toro, Red Farm on the Upper West Side, Marco’s in Brooklyn, American Cut in Tribeca. But plenty more are just around the corner. Here are 5 NYC restaurant openings to watch out for in the months to come.
Telepan Local: While Bill Telepan might not be the best-known chef in town, he’s been beloved among uptown diners for years with his locavore-minded cuisine and the high standards of service at his flagship Telepan; Telepan Local will be in Tribeca, with a small-plates approach to dining.
Brooklyn Fare Manhattan: The original Brooklyn Fare, a chef’s table within the confines of a high-end grocery store, rose to fame despite its unlikely digs with rave reviews and three Michelin stars; Brooklyn Fare Manhattan will have a chef’s table as well, in addition to a 65-seat dining room.
Ivan Ramen: Ivan Orkin doesn’t look like one of the city’s best ramen makers, but after a long stint in Tokyo, he knows the noodles as well (or better) than anyone else in the business. Expect Ivan Ramen to open on the Lower East Side sometime this fall.
Bar Bolonat: Einat Admony is well-known for her falafel shop Taïm, as well as her comfortable, elegant Mediterranean restaurant Balaboosta; Bar Bolonat will be her second full restaurant.
Rotisserie Georgette: Notable French chef David Malbequi and former Boulud PR head Georgette Farkas combine forces for this rotisserie and restaurant.
