New & Noteworthy

I pass by three or four restaurants from Gabriel Stulman every day as I walk to the subway and run errands.  He has eight spots mostly in the West Village and at the Freehand Hotel in the Gramercy area. I have dined at many of them and his track record alone puts his latest venture, The Jones, on my list. 

But this is also a revival of The Great Jones, a neighborhood spot located across the street from where Jean-Michel Basquiat lived; Andy Warhol and Madonna would drop in.  The revamp did not touch the blue and orange exterior, the Elvis bust and neon EAT sign, but the interior and the menu are completely different. In perusing the menu, there is a Filet O’ Fish that clearly is a take on the classic McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish, which was a favorite of mine growing up so I know what I will be ordering on my first visit. The Jones website notes that it is currently open for weekday breakfast and lunch. Articles mention that starting mid-September, it will be open on weekends as well as adding dinner service.

Interestingly enough, there are again no new additions to this week’s New & Noteworthy list.  That said, I’ve updated a few of the links to include recent restaurant critic reviews, mainly of Rezdôra. I have been trying to get a reservation there for months (and ahead of the glowing reviews) with no luck. Maybe a 5pm weekday supper is in the cards.

New & Noteworthy

There are so many openings that piqued my interest but for some reason, I am not in any rush to add any to the list this week. Call it tasting menu/ramen/pop-up fatigue and disinterest in schlepping to Hudson Yards to visit the Equinox Hotel.  That said, folks with pedigrees from NYC and indeed all over the world are opening their doors. These include Luthun, Tenho Ramen, and Mastercard Priceless’ Lyaness, Teruzushi and The Rock installations. 

I have removed Bar Wayō and Bar Pisellino from the list.
