Brits Invade the Upper East Side with Desmond's, Set to Open Tomorrow
A British-born chef-and-restaurateur team is gearing up to open Desmond's tomorrow, March 3. The "clubby" restaurant is mere blocks from another British import, Le Caprice.
Invade Desmond's, as of tomorrow.
Owner Richard O'Hagan and chef-owner David Hart describe their menu as "modern American club food," featuring dishes like "La Goulue" tuna tartare ($14); veal cheeks, mashed potato, watercress, and onion rings ($24); beef Wellington for two ($28 per person); and desserts by pastry chef Liliana Meyers, formerly of Daniel. Per a press release, the restaurant is set in a converted bank dating to 1929. It will open for lunch in two weeks.
