Back in October we mentioned that their tagline appears to be “‘chips & beer & wine.” Look for dishes that feature mussels and sausages (obvs) but prepared with myriad worldwide culinary influences (e.g. French, Spanish, Portuguese). We’ve also heard that service will be a big focus. And then there’s the cocktail menu, which in this current climate of elevated mixed drinks, surely there will be some creative libations to be had.

DNAinfo also mentioned that general manager Tarcisio Costa relayed the restaurants concept as, “an international restaurant with a French soul, if you will. It has a very specific point of view.” More from DNAinfo:

“Dishes will include a variety of sausages, including Greek sausage from a local butcher, French and Italian sausages, Spanish chorizo and German bratwurst, each served with different garnishes.

Mussels will come in different broths, like one with white wine, garlic, Dijon mustard, thyme and cream, and another option that comes in red wine, shallots, cream, bacon and mushrooms.

Side dishes will include French fries, mashed potatoes and garlic spinach.

The eatery will also serve cocktails, wine and craft beer, as well as espresso drinks and fruit tarts that will change daily.”
