According to the Observer, the Cooper Square Hotel is still without a Certificate of Occupancy and is weeks away from opening, but last night at developer managing partner Klaus Ortlieb’s pad, L.A. chef Govind Armstrong previewed some items off of Table 8’s menu: Porterhouse, squab, and a creamy celery soup with strips of bacon. Per Eater, the restaurant is still a construction site, “but come December we should have a main dining room — separated into a raised platform (fitting 60 seats) designated for finer dining, a group of small tables for more casual fare, and the centerpiece, a 14-seat charcuterie and salt bar — an outdoor dining area on the ground floor, and an outdoor dining space upstairs. The bars (both on the ground and second floors) will have their own separate bar menus.”
