Get ready for Roosterfish Rocks Bar, which will slot into The Palm's spot at the corner of Sixth and J when the steakhouse closes at the end of the year.
The venture is a collaboration between four industry vets, Howard Greenberg (Trilogy Management), Joe Vaught (Verant Group), Todd Brown (Bub's) and Ty Hauter (Good Time Design), the new seafood restaurant will be managed and operated by Good Time Design.
The team behind Roosterfish Rocks Bar intends to give the 10,000-square-foot, bi-level space the look of an outdoor marketplace, taking inspiration from San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf or Pike Place Market in Seattle; when the weather's good, all doors will open completely onto the sidewalk for an indoor/outdoor feel.
Slated for an April 2014 opening, the East Village restaurant will feature a raw bar, a sushi bar and steamer station for shellfish.
