Fall Tracking: The Highlands

New, 10 comments

2007_09_efp.jpgHighlands, 150 West 10th St., West Village
Initial Projection: Summer '09
Current Debut Projection: October 7
Odds, On Time Arrival: Even
Eater Projected Opening Date: 10/07/09

Highlands, the "first authentic Scottish establishment in New York City," will open in the old P'ong and Batch spaces on West 10th Street on October 7, October 9 at the latest. Sold as a gastropub, the restaurant is owned by Brian McGrory, an alum of AvroKO, native of Scotland, and expert bar man, Mary Wan, who opened a boutique hotel with McGrory back in Glasgow, and Donal Brophy, an alum of Madam Geneva and Bua. There will be an extensive cocktail list, including a special Scotch cocktail list, beers from microbreweries, and a short menu with items from $6 - 22.

Why this gets special fall tracking status? Given the time and energy the owners are putting into it, the expense of the location, the background of the team, and the AvroKO designer on board for the design, it is going to be an ambitious place. And of course, the focus on high-minded pub grub is very of the moment. Take a look at the menu below.

micro mustard, drop scones, creme fraiche, capers, and lemon
