While the one day-old Brooklyn restaurant Vinegar Hill House by ex-Freeman's chef Jean Adamson and her boyfriend and owner of Freeman's Sporting Club Barbershop Sam Buffa isn't officially connected to the Lower East Side restaurant, there are some striking similarities. Taxidermy has been replaced by other details including a long hanging flag and shelves with plants, but there is a similar homey aesthetic running through both operations. The pair built out the restaurant using mostly repurposed materials.
The menu will be seasonal, the fish sustainable, the meat, broken down from whole animals. According to the Robs the restaurant will focus "on grains, legumes, and vegetables, which are intended to supplement smaller portions of protein." Check here and here for first hand reports on opening night.
