In addition to yesterday’s reports from opening night (a commenter spotted Lars Ulrich from Metallica), the Food Doc has some early thoughts: “the whole room is warmly lit, and has a rustic and convivial atmosphere.” As for that room, Danny Meyer tells the Moment about working with designer David Rockwell: “The thing that David Rockwell and I spent so much time going back and forth on was that we didn’t want this to look like a stage set — we wanted it to look authentic.” [Moment/NYT, Food Doc]
