What to Eat at Enduro, a New Midtown Restaurant From the Owner of Junior’s

Alan Rosen, the third-generation owner of Junior's, is creating his own legacy: He's teaming up with chef Nathan Huntington (of the three-Michelin-starred L2O in Chicago) to open a midtown restaurant. The name is a nod to Rosen's grandfather, who operated Enduro restaurants in the twenties, but there's no traditional cheesecake on the menu — only soft-serve cheesecake with graham-cracker ice cream. Enduro is stacked with a French rotisserie, bread oven, and a six-foot open grill, which Huntington will use to cook American dishes like rib eye for two, veal meatball marinara, and linguini with clams. August 26 is the official opening date, and Enduro will be open seven days a week for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch. Check out the menus and a few of the dishes, straight ahead.
