As expected, M Pche (a.k.a. Momofuku Midtown) opened for lunch today. Meanwhile, downtown, Indian favorite Tamarind has unveiled its 175-seat Tribeca outpost. Gothamist and Eater are at odds about the 11,000-square-foot spaces design: Eater thinks its a big, bland, airplane hangar of a place, while Gothamist carps, We really like the look of this place all the Brazilian teak (sustainable!) and sunshine makes us want to wander in barefoot off the beach and order a giant mango lassi. Whatever the case, take a look at the menu as well as slideshows of the interior (Gothamists being the more extensive one) at your blog of choice.
