Abe & Arthur's chef Franklin Becker is wearing an additional toque: He's heading up the kitchen at Lexington Brass, opening Thursday inside the brand-new Hyatt 48 Lex. The 100-seat "American bistro" offers many classics: tuna tartare, French onion soup, filet mignon, plus some newer faves, including macaroni and cheese and seasonal veggie sides and of course, kombucha on tap. This being a hotel (and midtown), the spot is also open for breakfast and power lunches. Scope the menus below and see some of the dishes in our slideshow.
