Stitch Owners Open Houndstooth Pub, Snow Patrol Lends Rock Cred

By

Another gastropub owned by rock-and-rollers? Okay, so its not exactly the Spotted Pig, but then again the garment district aint the West Village, which is why we suspect midtowners will be interested to hear of Houndstooth Pub a 6,800-square-foot bar (in the former Chock Full O' Nuts) from Dave Renehan, Kevin McKenna, and Nicholas Cohen of Stitch. This time around, they're teaming not with Scott Weiland but with Gary Lightbody and Nathan Connolly of Scottish it band Snow Patrol. Chef Keith Dorsey is churning out what's called casual dining in a corporate world. That pretty much translates to pub grub, but for what it's worth, we're assured the food is fresh, local, and organic. The soft-opening menu follows a comfort food menu is on its way.
