Zoë Feigenbaum, the recent winner
of an episode of "Chopped", opened this intimate American eatery in 2011 after stints
as executive chef at The National. For her space she chose a storefront on a quiet
block on the Lower East Side, where the decor channels mid-century America and Denmark
with whitewashed brick walls, chalkboard-scrawled menus, and finished hardwood tables.
Her ever-changing menus for lunch, brunch, and dinner embrace fine American cuisine
and often incorporate Southern and Mediterranean influences, as in the octopus escabeche
with homemade labne, praised as one of "100 Dishes to Eat Now" by the Village
Voice. Another highlight: the buttery corned-beef reuben that New
York magazine declared "might be the best version in town."'
