The good news is after a couple of false starts, The Hotel Williamsburg, a part condo/part hotel on the neighborhood's north side, officially opened to the public last month on North 12th Street. The bad news is its pastorally-named restaurant Pillar & Plough doesn't make its official debut until November 22. But we can still take a look around.
Visible from the sidewalk outside through massive windows, the lower level space features an open kitchen, some red-hued nooks and crannies, and plenty of decorative cement. Running the kitchen is L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon alum Andres Grundy, who will serve American small plates and whole animal large format feasts. Stay tuned for an opening menu closer to its official debut later this month.
