What to Eat at Branch 27, Reopening Tonight

Tonight’s the reopening night for Branch 27, where brand-new chef John Manion will reveal his brand-new menu. The selection promises plenty of stuff perfect for today’s frigidity — think shrimp and grits (which we’re adding to our list of trends that are about to explode, right next to choucroute), chicken-fried chicken livers served with frisee and lardons, a grilled radicchio salad, and tagliatelle with sweetbreads, bacon and breadcrumbs. Read on for the full menu.
