Eater Inside: Gus & Gabriel

New, 6 comments

[Krieger, 6/29/09]

Upper West Side: Get excited, UWS. Greek wonder Michael Psilakis opens his long-awaited encore in the old Kefi space, Gus & Gabriel, tonight at 5 p.m. Those familiar with Kefi 1.0 will remember the space is a bit smaller than his other ventures, with room for only 65 seats. Nevertheless, the place looks good, and the theme—affordable gastropub—should do well in the neighborhood (or any other nabe for that matter). Appetizers range from $4-$10, while entrees are $11-$15 and include a range of comfort foods like meatloaf, hot dogs, baked ziti, and grilled cheese. The beverage list has a selection of 50 beers, 70 whiskeys, and, get this, sharable flasks of liquor served at the table. See the full menu below, and send any early reports this way.
