The modern American eatery replacing The Corner in the East Village has a name, Table No. 10, and an estimated opening, late April or early May. The restaurant is named for the ten-top chef's table being built adjacent to the kitchen.
Chef Jason Gethin, formerly of Encinitas' Union Kitchen & Tap partnered The Corner owner Cooper McLaughlin to remodel the two-level 3,500-square-foot space. Gethin says Table No. 10's menu of New American cuisine will be "approachable fine dining", concentrating on small plates with a few larger entree-sized dishes, from halibut with Manila clam broth, melted leeks, red curry and sea beans to mushrooms and grits with grilled ramp vinaigrette and parmesan.. The menu will change depending on seasonality, and the restaurant intends to have an herb garden and rooftop garden to feed the bar and kitchen.
McLaughlin and new bar manager Cory Alberto (Cat Eye Club) collaborated on the cocktail menu, which employs house made tonics and sodas.
