Andre Balazs and Dovetail's John Fraser's much-anticipated restaurant opens tonight, offering a "vegetable-driven" menu complete with rotisserie beets and carrot fries. (Fraser actually tries to stick to a vegetarian diet.) The restaurant's named after a cow on Balazss farm in upstate New York, where the restaurant plans to source produce and dairy products. Right now, there's only dinner service, and breakfast, lunch, and weekend brunch will be offered by the spring. They still haven't finalized the menu, but here's a look at a few of the dishes and the sprawling 100-seat space.
