Seafood sausage, potato pot-stickers, and chicken potpie.
Five years after the closing of fine-dining trailblazer Chanterelle, David Waltuck is back with a new restaurant in Gramercy, which opens tonight. At the 60-seat spot (inside the former Veritas space), Waltuck and co-owner George Stinson will serve an à la carte menu, with dishes like stuffed chicken wings, chicken potpie, and duck-fat hash browns. It's certainly more casual than Chanterelle — but there's still seafood sausage — and élan will even introduce lunch and brunch service in the coming months. Take a look at a few of the dishes, straight ahead.
