Faustina’s Menu, Illustrated


Scott Conant’s Faustina, in the Table 8 space at the Cooper Square Hotel, opens tomorrow night. The Scarpetta chef had about a month to transform the space and create the menu, dominated by Mediterranean small plates and a few wild cards, like short ribs and spaetzle, and fried chicken with porcini and potato stufato. There are few reservations available this weekend, but you can eat vicariously thanks to Grub Street photographer Melissa Hom. Watch our slideshow to see what Conant’s got cooking.
