What we have here, folks, is Askew, Edwin Chong's new "modern dining bar" (as per press materials), with an interior designed by Karim Rashid. (You thought it was Avro-Ko, didn't you? Come on, you did.) Small plates are by chef Chris Lim, who before coming to Askew cut his teeth at Town. Despite our out-of-the-gate analysis, this is a good one to know about, given its proximity to such venues as The Angelika.
