Smyth resort restaurant will open this summer season
The Smyth Tribeca, which, when it was an AKA resort, had the stunning Little Park in its major restaurant area on West Broadway and Chambers till the pandemic killed it, has enlisted John McDonald, the entrepreneur behind Mercer Road Hospitality, to create a restaurant there this summer season known as Smyth Tavern. He will even be doing a small cocktail bar and lounge, but to be named, on the opposite aspect of the resort the place the Night Bar as soon as was (earlier than AKA stripped it clear of all environment after which closed it to the general public). That’s scheduled for fall.
McDonald stated he’s hoping to open this summer season with a renovated area by the restaurant designers Meyer Davis, whom he labored with at Bowery Meat Firm and Bar Tulix (pictures under for reference).
“The room will probably be wooden heavy (panels, tambour), pink leather-based cubicles, and we hope to work with a set of Tribeca artwork galleries to rotate and have their artists’ work,” McDonald stated. “The menu continues to be in growth however broad strokes: American Tavern fare, the sort of place you may frequent. I do know that sounds overly easy however that’s the objective right here.” Works for me.
He promised to ship alongside some pictures and the menu as soon as issues are in place.
McDonald based MercBar in Soho 1993 after which went on to create Lure Fishbar just a few doorways down on Mercer (and two different cities), Bar Tulix on Houston, Bowery Meat Firm on East 1st Road, and Bistrot Leo, Butterfly and the personal roof bar A60 on Thompson.
