Chef and former Momofuku R&D; guy Daniel Burns, who also cooked at the Fat Duck and Noma, is opening a beer bar and restaurant in Greenpoint with Danish brewer Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø, Eater NY reports. Tørst, which means thirst, will open in March. A 25-seat full-service restaurant called Luksus will debut in the back of the space where Burns will serve “Scandinavian-influenced American fare.” Meanwhile, Jon Langley, formerly of DBGB, will be the general manager. Construction is coming along, the taps are being installed, and Jarnit-Bjergsø says to get ready to try some beers that have never before been served in the U.S., and also, that they’re hoping to be “the best beer bar in the country.” [Eater NY]
