“Tremont: A Beachy Retreat In The Heart Of The West Village”

Experience a taste of the Hamptons without ever leaving the West Village. Executive Chef and partner Tim Bando (of Amagansett’s The Meeting House) has opened Tremont in the old La Foccacia space on Bank Street and West 4th. The airy, 45-seat interior will transport you to a sunny beachside inn with its crisp white walls, rich dark wood floors, cozy dining nooks and antique light fixtures.

Chef Bando prepares a cuisine of new American dishes accented with Mediterranean influence. You’ll find a selection of refined starters, such as zucchini crudo tossed with pine nuts, lemon oil and parmesan cheese ($12), crispy sweetbreads with veal cheek ragout, morel mushrooms and ramps ($17) and poached lobster over a polenta crouton and truffled corn salad ($19). Extending the menu are heartier entrées, including the grilled pork chop with almond risotto, peach basil compote and vin cotto ($26) and grilled halibut with giardiniera, chickpeas, lemon oil and basil ($28).

Named after Bando’s former Cleveland neighborhood, Tremont is an elegant, laid back spot for dinner, with lunch and weekend brunch service starting later this month. Now open daily and accepting reservations for parties of six or more.

Tremont is located at 51 Bank Street (at West 4th Street), 212-488-1019, www.tremontnyc.com.
