Wallflower’s Jason Soloway Planning Replacement for Toucan and the Lion

Good-bye, Asian gastropub. Hello, small plates.

Wallflower proprietor Jason Soloway and Tasting Table chef Brendan McHale, who was also previously in the kitchen at Jack's Luxury Oyster Bar, are taking over "Asian gastropub" the Toucan and the Lion on East 6th Street to open an as-yet-unnamed American restaurant. The pair will present plans at tonight's CB3 Manhattan meeting. [EV Grieve, Related]
