Eater Inside: Nios

New, 8 comments

[Krieger, 4/7/09]

Midtown West: The theater district restaurant attached to the Muse Hotel, District, has reopened this week as Nios, and the powers that be are counting on a duo of females for a successful revamp. Chef Patricia Williams, the most recent chef at District, is in charge of the "seasonal American" (what else?) menu, which offers charcuterie, pizzas, small plates, sandwiches, and some heftier options. Meanwhile Master Sommelier Emily Wines was brought in from San Francisco to run the wine program. See the full menu below.
