Details are emerging on Michael O’Halloran’s (Bistro 7) second restaurant, The Waverly which is set to open this April.
â€œThe Waverly will bring ambitious but approachable food to the neighborhood. Weâ€™ll apply French technique to local ingredients to create sturdy, full-flavored modern-classic dishes,â€ says Chef Oâ€™Halloran.
Unlike Bistro 7 The Waverly will have a liquor license featuring an international wine list, craft beers and classic cocktails.
A 12-seat bar and 8-seat lounge area will be offset from the 75-seat dining room by a two-sided fireplace. Modern chandeliers will illuminate the space. Dark wood and leather will accent the bar and lounge; high ceilings and large windows will mark the dining room.
Appetizers will be priced between $8 and $14; entrees range from $21 to $28. There will also be the option of a Chefâ€™s Tasting Menu, a seven course $55 prix fixe. Menu highlights after the jump.
