Key players: Junghyun ‘JP’ Park, Ellia Park
Target open: April
Modern Korean banchan-inspired restaurant Atoboy quickly became a hit when it opened in 2016, run by chef JP Park, an alum of Michelin-starred Jungsik, and partner Ellia Park. For their sophomore restaurant, the duo will be going even more upscale with a Japanese tasting menu-style restaurant and cocktail bar at Atomix in Kips Bay. The kaiseki menu, though inspired by the hyper-seasonal dinners common in Japan, will still focus on Korean fare — in hopes of expanding New Yorkers’ idea of what food from the country can look like. 104 East 30th St., between Park Avenue South and Lexington Avenue, Kips Bay
Bree/Jim your New Odeon....wine buying team is of 360 Van Brunt Red Hook fame!!
Key players: Lee Hanson, Riad Nasr
Target open: February ((Not on target))
As opening chefs of Balthazar and Minetta Tavern, duo Lee Hanson and Riad Niasr helped make the quintessentially New York Keith McNally restaurants what they are today. Now, they’re embarking on their first solo project with Frenchette, a 100-seat Tribeca restaurant that’s an updated version of a French brasserie. It will be open all day, with a basement aging room, a rotisserie, and a Japanese charcoal grill. And though the word “French brasserie” sounds like old territory for the chefs, they insist that it will be more modern — with fewer white subway tiles.
