Come Monday, John McDonald — of Bowery Meat Company, Lure Fishbar, and Burger & Barrel fame — will open his newest project inside the SIXTY Soho hotel. Both the vibe and the cuisine take after that easy-breezy coastal Italian feeling: Chef Jordan Frosolone, who has put in time at Momofuku and Hearth, has crafted a menu that includes beef-tongue sliders, braised octopus, fennel tortelli with sardines, and, of course, a roast chicken for two. The 100-seat space, designed by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, is filled with warm, earthy tones, giving it a relaxed, airy feel. And with a 30-­seat outdoor patio, this might just be a perfect light, casual restaurant for summer. Take a look:
