Six Restaurants That Opened In NYC This Week
When one restaurant's doors close, another restaurant's doors open in fast-paced New York City, and every Friday, we'll fill you in on what opened up around town this week. This week, a beer garden in the Financial District, a Woody Allen inspired speakeasy, and a no-frills American pub in the West Village.
Ambrose Hall, 18 Fulton Street, 212-785-0018
Located in the Financial District, Ambrose Hall is part whiskey haven, part beer garden, part surf club. The owners are no strangers to the beer hall scene -- they formerly owned Beekman Beer Garden, which closed when construction began at Pier 17. Earlier this week, owner Telly Hatzigeorgiou told us, "We're trying to find craft products you wouldn't find in your average bar." Ambrose Hall is open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. until midnight and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. until 3 a.m.
Campeón, 9 East 16th Street, 212-675-4700
A new sports bar has opened in the Financial District that boasts Mexican fare and the ambiance to match. Feast on playful spins on guacamole, glazed wings, and, of course, cold cerveza. The joint has 35 high definition televisions, so you won't miss a second of the upcoming World Cup matches.
Chapter One, 33 Greenwich Avenue, 212-842-9146
Chapter One is an American Pub in the West Village that owner Damian Collins hopes will serve as "really warm, really comfortable, and a welcoming spot." The menu features Long Island duck, half chicken, oyster chowder, and a lot of local vegetables. The cocktails are simple and to the point, just as Collins likes them. Chapter One is open for dinner every night and brunch on weekends.
