Kurve Pulls Out All the Stops: Live Jazz, Happy Hour, and Prix Fixe

By

Pichet Ongs Batch may have thrown in the towel, but Kurve, where his desserts are served, is still fighting for its life after a run-in with its landlord. Not only has it launched a new weekday prix fixe (four courses, including an amuse-bouche, for $27 to $35 depending on the week) but its hosting live jazz from 8 till 11 p.m. every Thursday. The Space Odysseyesque environs of Kurve is the last place wed expect to hear jazz (heck, its even weirder than the live jazz now on offer at Gusto Organics from 8 till 10 p.m. on Mondays and Thursdays perhaps inspired by Spring Street Naturals long-running Thursday-night sessions), but then again, where there are Petraske cocktails, a saxophone cant be far behind. Speaking of which, the happy-hour price for all those cocktails on Monday through Thursday from 5:30 till 8 p.m. is $9.
