Eater Inside: Harbour

New, 11 comments

[Horine, 3/19/09]
Soho West: Brought to you Richard Schaeffer and chef Joe Isidori, Harbour, the newest nautical restaurant to hit Manhattan, opens to the public next Monday, March 23rd. Before you ask, no it's not an offshoot of Lure. But indeed, they are very much going for that restaurant-on-a-boat look, and fittingly, the menu is rife with shellfish, chowder, and fish dishes, with a few meat entrees thrown in for good measure. According to press materials, they've decided to call this mix "Urban Market Cuisine."

And as a sign of the times, Harbour comes right out of the gate with some recession-minded specials. The set lunch is $25, set four-course dinner, $45, and 20 bottles are available for under $20. For a nostalgic, somewhat trendy addition: a artisanal soda menu. Oh and that Chihuly-like chandelier, it's is by Fornino owner Michael Ayoub. More reading here and here, and the menu below:
