Katz’s Delicatessen at DeKalb Market Hall
Food halls have exploded in New York City, and they’re finally expanding out to Brooklyn. DeKalb Market Hall promises to be one of the biggest food halls in the five boroughs. This downtown Brooklyn spot is sure to be a major draw for local foodies and tourists alike. With anywhere from 35 to 55 undisclosed vendors at its imminent inception, there’s a rumor that Manhattan institution Katz’s Delicatessen may among the first to christen this new venture. Watch this space.
A&E Supply Co.
A&E Supply Co. is more than just a restaurant; it’s a restaurant plus coffee counter plus market with its own butcher and cheese larder. Chef and owner Adam Harvey clearly isn’t holding back – it’s an ambitious venture that’s sure to entice and excite.
Keith McNally is no stranger to the restaurant scene. With Manhattan’s French favorites like Balthazar, Cherche Midi, and the iconic Minetta Tavern under his belt, McNally’s Augustine promises to bring his signature Franco-American bling to the financial district. Located within the Beekman Hotel, Augustine’s atmospheric French brasserie vibe will hopefully bring something delicious to a neighbourhood not known for its food scene.
A rare weak spot in NYC’s food scene is its lack of Nordic options. The upcoming n’eat promises to fill this gap with its imminent East Village launch. Owner Mathias Kaer runs quite a few successful restaurants in his native Denmark. We’re certain n’eat’s one-two punch of white-washed Scandanavian decor and a flavorful menu will be a surefire hit in NYC.
Nolita is already one of the trendiest neighborhoods in all of Manhattan. This will surely only continue with the opening of The Sosta – a fast-casual Italian restaurant from the crew behind vegan diner-style favorite by CHLOE. With its three locations quickly establishing by Chloe as one of the most popular spots in the city, foodie hopes are high for their latest venture.
Chinese Tuxedo is opening this fall in the heart of Chinatown on the famous Doyers Street. The restaurant aims to restore traditional Chinatown culture, serving reimagined Cantonese food in a fun and modern environment.
French restaurateur Claude Louzon will open Miss Paradis this fall – a spin-off of his Parisian chain Le Paradis du Fruit. Like its trans-Atlantic French counterpart, the New York edition will be health and veggie-focused, with a signature emphasis on dessert.
Dale Talde – owner of successful namesake restaurant Talde, in Brooklyn – will open an ‘inauthentic Italian’ restaurant in the Arlo Nomad Hotel this fall. Talde has never been one to stick to tradition when it comes to food. So, it’s no surprise that his new Italian-ish restaurant may include kimchi and biryani variations on the menu. He counts ‘the diversity of New York City’ as his inspiration, so the menu promises unexpected pairings with a sophisticated slant.
Restaurateur-wunderkind Andrew Carmellini (responsbile for favorites like The Dutch, Lafayette, Bar Primi, Locande Verde, and Little Park), will open a new southern Italian restaurant, Leuca, in Williamsburg, inside the William Vale Hotel. Wood-fire cooking will feature heavily on the menu as will seafood. Carmellini has already proven his Italian bona fides time and again. Hopefully, this one will be no different. As a bonus, Westlight will launch in tandem as the hotel’s rooftop bar, also helmed by the indefatigable Carmellini.
