The new resto housed in the Hotel on Rivington, Co-Op Food and Drink has been pimped out! Hopefully all the bells and whistles prove to be the x-factor for success (because this wasn’t the case for its predecessors). It’s a creation from the Guerrilla Culinary Brigade, best-known for hosting pop-up dinners. They created a resto that delivers an experience for the senses- palate, personality and pop tunes -it’s the ultimate dinner party.
The New American menu spans the globe with a skew towards asian fusion and sushi. Le Bernardin alum, John Keller is at the helm, while Stephen Wong, formerly of Sushi of Gari, covers the sushi. They present us with bold flavors and creative executions via shareable plates. Every palate will be duly served.
The decor is just as bold as the dishes! The cool vibe releases a clubby aura that is manufactured from the glam-rock retro feel…….cool photos of NYC icons (Betsey Johnson and Moby) lace the dining room walls, a glass-covered ceiling, gold-mirror-tiled bar, leather booths, and an upbeat playlist of hits. Scenesters won’t be disappointed.
