In quite possibly the best double-entendre of a name ever, the Times reports that Bâtard (named after a wine region in Burgundy, definitely not a reference to Corton's erstwhile chef) will replace Corton.  Nieporent says the food will be "user-friendly".  The chef is Markus Glocker, previously of Steirereck and other Michelin-starred places.


Man about town.

I know some folks who were negotiating for the space who wanted to use the same name.  It's a good one.

Makes me think it's a bakery.

The name makes sense, but invites snickering.

How many guests will pronounce it to rhyme with "retard"?

Eater has some photography of the space, and an overview.  Shooting for a June opening.

Looks pretty classic, except for the rabbit bouillabaisse.  :D

 

I do miss tablecloths.

Please, that's a rather Liebrandt-ish sounding "Flavors of Bouillabaisse" :P
