Potential Prospect Heights Gamechanger, The Vanderbilt

New, 1 comment

[Krieger, 9/20/09]

Tonight Saul Bolton, the owner of the recently two starred Saul, and Num Pang's Ben Daitz will preview their newest project, the 90-seat bar/resto The Vanderbilt, to friends and family who want to make the trek out to Prospect Heights. On Friday, she'll open up to the whole neighborhood. Basically, it's a well made and comfortable neighborhood joint with Bolton's "seasonally-inspired New American fare" (small plates for $4-16), a list of $9 classic cocktails, and a good selection of beer and wine. According to press materials—which mentioned Saul's Michelin star five times—the decor is meant to evoke the historical significance of the building. It will be open from 5 PM - midnight weekdays and until 2 AM on weekends.
