Andy Kastanas & James Fedele’s new “music-restaurant” is the American equivalent of a European gastropub. Its cuisine, much of which inspired by the delicate, scientific approach to cooking known as molecular gastronomy, also reaches outside those boundries to include more traditional faire ranging from sushi to mini cuban sandwiches.
Local DJs are on hand every night spinning house and lounge tunes. Kastanas said he wanted to create a place that satisfied both his love for food and for music.
Justin Ritchie and I stopped by on opening night. Among other things, we tried a delicious plate of thinly-sliced beets and fennel root, and what they told us was the 2nd order of sushi they’d ever served.
In the video above we take a look around, and talk with one of the bartenders and co-owner James Fedele. Also see Sarah Aarthun’s review over at Paid to Party.
