Jack & Charlie's no.118
118 Greenwich Avenue (West Village, NYC)
Tentative Opening Date: Mid-September
Executive Chef/Partner: Ed Cotton
Jack & Charle's no.118 brings elevated neighborhood dining to the West Village. The menu offerings, led by Executive Chef Ed Cotton, will focus on creative New American cuisine with raw bar classics, handmade pastas, wood-fired dry-aged steaks, and fresh seafood. The 3,000 square foot, 110 seat restaurant is located in a historic, landmarked building that sits on the corner of Greenwich Avenue and West 13th Street. The design and décor will nod to New York City's iconic supper clubs, with dark and moody textiles, rich English leathers, warm convivial lighting, and a classic fireplace. The bar program will feature handcrafted cocktails, with an emphasis on the Martini. Dinner will launch first, followed by brunch, then lunch at a later date.  

Sweetbriar
127 E 27th Street – at Park South Hotel (Kips Bay, NYC)
Tentative Opening Date: Mid/late-September
Executive Chef: Bryce Shuman
Sweetbriar is the first of two restaurant concepts to open within New York City's Park South Hotel from the team behind TH/RST Group (Nick Bathurst, Dennis Konen, Brian Kelly) and Executive Chef Bryce Shuman. The menu will spotlight fresh, seasonal vegetables and prime meats enhanced by "live fire" cooking with wood and charcoal – and the team has tapped cocktail veteran Ivan Papic as Beverage Director to develop the bar program. Housed in the former Covina space, the interiors of Sweetbriar will be redesigned by Lea Cojot (SoHo House, 74Wythe, Rockwell Group) to bring in a fresh and modern design with shapes inspired by the 70’s, and sophisticated finishes such as reeded glass, zellige tile, green leather, and stone. Dinner will launch first, followed by brunch and lunch. In mid/late October, a Japanese-inspired concept will open within the former O Ya space – more details to come. (*A sample menu is available, subject to change)

El Fish Shack
155 Amsterdam Avenue (Upper West Side, NYC)
Tentative Opening Date: October
Executive Chef: Julian Medina
Following the success of El Fish Shack's Astoria location, Chef/Owner Julian Medina and Restaurateur Louis Skibar (Toloache Restaurant Group) will open a flagship location on the Upper West Side this Fall. El Fish Shack is a New-England style fish and seafood restaurant with Mexican flare. The menu features fresh-caught whole lobster that can be prepared simply – steamed, grilled, or "angry" (sauteed with house-made spicy Shack tomato hot sauce and corn) – or composed (i.e. tacos, roll, waffle, baked and stuffed). There are also raw bar offerings and ceviche – as well as a variety of seafood from the fish market that can be prepared grilled or fried with your choice of sauce. The bar program will feature beer, signature cocktails, as well as a gin-focused cocktail list. (*Sample menu available, subject to change)

Myron Mixon's Pitmaster Barbeque
618 Washington Street (Hoboken, NJ)
Tentative Opening Date: October/November
Executive Chef: Myron Mixon
Five-time World Barbeque Champion Myron Mixon will bring his signature style to Hoboken with the opening of Myron Mixon's Pitmaster Barbeque. Open for lunch and dinner, guests can enjoy a menu of dry-rubbed barbeque beef, pork, baby back ribs, and smoked half chickens – plus sandwiches, salads, and southern-style sweets.

Tacuba
213-41 39th Avenue (Bayside, Queens)
Tentative Opening Date: November
Executive Chef: Julian Medina
This Fall, Chef/Owner Julian Medina and Restaurateur Louis Skibar (Toloache Restaurant Group) will open a third location of their popular Mexican Cantina, Tacuba, in Bayside. The menu will feature an assortment of shareable appetizers, as well as tacos and mains. The beverage list spotlights tequila and mezcal (sipped straight, or in a cocktail). There are also classic cocktails, non-alcoholic mocktails, wine, and beer. (*Sample menu available, subject to change)
