Marc Murphy, of Landmarc and Ditch Plains fame, has an elegant new restaurant up on 57th Street. Kingside will serve a French-influenced New American menu with dishes like braised pork belly, double-rib veal-chop, and foie gras with savory fig caramel. It's an expensive hotel restaurant, but that concept still seems to work for uptown crowds. Roman & Williams designed the 104-seat space, which has a graphic chessboard-style floor, an open chef's kitchen with red leather stools, and glazed brick walls. It's open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day of the week. Take a look at the space, the menus, and a few of the dishes, straight ahead.
