“More Fall Previews”

This just in from our friends at BeccaPR: The guys from EO and Macao Trading Company will open East Side Social Club and David Burke will open a newly renovated David Burke Townhouse in the space that was David Burke & Donatella. Read more below.  

East Side Social Club

230 E. 51st Street (btwn Second & Third Aves.), No phone yet  
Timing: Late October
East Side Social Club will be a family-run restaurant serving traditional Italian-American dishes and well-crafted cocktails. Owned by six New York restaurant veterans, including Billy Gilroy of Employees Only & Macao Trading Co., as well as renowned photographer Patrick McMullan, East Side Social Club will provide gracious service in a comfortable, old-world atmosphere with a 1940s film noir vibe. Gilroy’s son, Devon (Chanterelle, A Voce) will head up the kitchen, while Gilroy’s daughter, Grace, and brother, Jim, will run the front-of-house operations along with partners Patrick Fahey and Tarek Debira. The restaurant is located in the former Montparnasse space.

Timing: Last week of August
Chef David Burke’s Upper East Side flagship restaurant is getting a face-lift. After closing for renovations in early August, davidburke townhouse (formerly David Burke & Donatella) will re-open on Wednesday, August 26 in the same space, which is located one block away from Burke’s sustainable seafood restaurant, Fishtail. Burke and davidburke townhouse executive chef, Sylvain Delpique, are expanding the menu to include new dishes and signature dishes from throughout Burke’s career, including Homemade Pastrami Salmon and The Lobster Steak. A new meat-carving station in the dining room will provide guests with a sense of theater as dishes including whole chicken, rack of lamb and porterhouse steak are carved and presented tableside. In addition to a larger bar with a striking back-lit salt wall, the design plans call for new fabrics, carpet, wall coverings and hand-blown glass art throughout the space, demonstrating a truer reflection of the Burke’s artistic vision.
