Since the gas is on, lets get the discussion fired up.  Imo, this is the most exciting opening in NY in awhile.  I was at the F&F dinner which showed lots of promise, but basque food is deserving of and benefits from fire, which is now possible. Wine list is going to be stellar.  Much of the opening team from Frenchette is there.  Chef is Ryan Barlow (a dear friend), as I'm sure you already know.  He's a very talented guy and he lived in San Sebastian, which is the inspiration for the restaurant.

The website says, “Coming soon to the Lower East Side.” So, the presumption is that it’s not yet open.

I don't have any info on when they're opening, but I'll share when I do.  In the meantime, they're doing a new years eve dinner for $120 that should be very fun: https://www.eventbri...ets-84669762539

I suspect they'll be soft open this week, but I'm not basing that on any information whatsoever.

On a neighborhood board or group or whatever, the claim is a week from today.

Someone should tell these guys that you don't build your website visibly online.  It looks REALLY amateurish.

To be fair It's not visible except to someone who's inclined to guess which unlinked URLs are likely to exist.

Yes!  You see a quarter-constructed website, with a background redolent of the Basque country and a picture of the principal staff and of what appears to be a characteristic dish (but other photos that are clearly generic template items).  Where the menu is supposed to be, you see the template's generic entries of "Flat White", "Cortado", etc., each followed by, "Here is a description of your product."  Where the hours should be, you see, "to come".  Where the phone number should be you see, "555-555-5555".  Etc.

Could it make a difference that I use DuckDuckGo?

 

(Meaning, now that I think of it, that it ISN'T Google.)

DuckDuckGo doesn't find MY hidden under-construction website!
