After 34 years, a Michelin star, and a few James Beard Awards, chef Alfred Portale has left the kitchen at Gotham Bar & Grill in order to open his solo venture, Portale. The contemporary Italian venue will aim for a more fun and relaxed vibe and will boast an in-house milling program to create its own flour for house-made bread, polenta and pasta.
Portale, 126 West 18th St.
Soho's upcoming Greek eatery, Lola Taverna, seems slated to become quite the trendy hot spot (all the cool kids are going Greek these days). The brainchild of restaurateur Cobi Levy (Little Prince, Babu Ji and Black Seed Bagels), Thanasis Panourgias (Nammos, Yves), and Will Makris (Socialista, Broken Coconut), the spot will highlight laid-back Greek island fare in a minimalist, ceramic-filled space. Bonus points for outdoor seating and three floor-to-ceiling windows.
Lola Taverna, 210 6th Ave.
