The NYC outpost of the popular LA restaurant from Knife Fight star Ilan Hall is opening soon in Williamsburg in Space Ninety 8, the new Urban Outfitters megaplex on North Sixth. Hall told us back in October, "It will be similar, it will have the same soul as [the LA outpost], but it's New York." Hall, who lived in Williamsburg six years ago, tells us the menu will have many of the classic Gorbals favorites (gribenes sandwich, bacon-wrapped matzo balls) and a bunch of new items based on local seasonal seafood and produce. "Monkfish cheeks will be an item. We’re doing some lamb dishes and sweetbread dishes, " Hall tells us. The space's two bars are currently soft open (including the one on the roof) until the restaurant gets its grill certification and can open fully.
Projected opening: Early to mid-May
Details: 98 N. Sixth Street
