And now, there’s also this: On Wednesday, February 1, the crew at the Good King Tavern will be hosting their first cider pairing event. A “Cider Supper,” they’re calling it, and with it will also be the debut of the newest local cidery, Hale & True.

The Good King Tavern has rolled out its new fall menu, the first under chef Nicholas Bazik. Bazik, a veteran of Fork, Bistrot La Minette and Lacroix has been onboard since early September and now the menu has been fully rolled over to Bazik’s take on French cuisine.

Have no fear, steak frites still has a home on the menu but so does Pork Shoulder Confit with celery root purée, purple cabbage and a sauce verte, as well as a Steak Tartare with mushroom aioli, pickled chanterelle and gaufrettes for dipping.

But here’s the tricky part. He’s not leaving Bar Ferdinand to go to Good King. He’s actually going to be overseeing things at both places.

Running this double-duty seems kind of crazy, if you ask us. But then again, from the looks of things he seems to be handling it rather well: with a new menu and events in the works this month, the Good King is already getting a makeover under Ansill’s command.

Will the balancing act last? Who knows. But for now, details and a menu after the jump.
