Inside Mary Queen of Scots, Opening on the LES Tomorrow

New, 8 comments
[Krieger, 11/2/10]

Tomorrow, the owners of West Village Scottish bar Highlands will shake off the stench of Allen & Delancey's failure and reopen the large restaurant space as Mary Queen of Scots. Running the show here is chef Will Hickox (Blue Hill and Public alum) and his sous Frederico Ribeiro. They've pulled together an under $30 menu of American and Scottish influenced fare with emphasis on both lighter options—salads, seafod—and charcuterie, cassulets, steaks, and pork belly.

Manning the bar is a team that includes alums from Pegu Club, Rye House, Freemans, Mayahuel, and The Breslin. See the full menu below.
