As expected, Má Pêche (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 space’s design: Eater thinks it’s “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 (Gothamist’s being the more extensive one) at your blog of choice.
