King, a new Soho restaurant from wd~50, Tailor, and Momofuku alum Francis Derby, opened to the public earlier this week, serving a mix of classics like steak tartar, beef burgers, skate, and butternut squash soup with some twists—tripe Stroganoff for one—thrown in. They're going for an Old World/antique vibe, hence the furniture in the above gallery and the old portraits in the dining room. And they're offering something a little new: a Champagne button. Diners who press the Champagne button by their table will be greeted with a tray of coupes, an ice bucket of champagne, seasonal fruit and a bottle of St. Germain. Besides that, the brunch, lunch, apertivo, and dinner setups look pretty straightforward.
See the full menu below, and as always, send early reviews this way.
