Next Tuesday, Brian Keyser of Casellula Cheese & Wine Café and his chef of two years, Megan Johnson, will open a second restaurant just nine blocks down Ninth Avenue. Elsewhere, as it’s called, occupies the former Le Madeleine space across from Esca — the most notable aspect of which is a quaint little garden room in the back. In keeping with a commitment to local, seasonal, and sustainable food, the new owners are using the back skylight to grow herbs for the shareable plates, as well as mixers for the house cocktails (there will also be wines on tap and the option to “open any bottle” of wine so long as you order two glasses). Of course, there will be plenty of cheese. Check out the menu below and have a look at the interior’s ever in-vogue white subway tiles via the slideshow.
