2012's Dining Trends Wrapped Into One New Restaurant

New, 17 comments

What happens when you take all of the dining trends of 2012 and roll them into one restaurant? By the looks of a new Thrillist listing, you get The Goodwin, a gastropub/wine bar/New American tavern that's opening in the West Village this week. The components:
· A menu (PDF) that lists both "Bar Bites" and "Small Plates"
· Bottles of purified sparkling or still water listed under "Our Water Program"
· Dishes like a pickle pot, spiced caramel corn, pigs in a blanket, marrow crostini, and a po boy made with tempura mussels (it's called the "Rich Boy")
· A sake program
· Jerky listed at "mkt" price
· One token vegetarian dish called "The Vegetable Experience"
· Coffee beverages listed under "Coffee & Other Drinkables"
· Exposed brick + wood paneling + black banquettes (kind of like Marc Forgione)

· Reclaimed junk on the walls, plus a map of old NYC
· A bar program from a veteran of The Lion
· A back room called "The Grange"
· That name
The restaurant also has a garden in the back, which the chefs might use to grow herbs for the food, but there's still no word yet on wether they'll offer a chef's tasting menu. The Goodwin is slated to open this Friday.
