Danny Meyer is planning a new Southern-style bar called Porchlight for a 4,000 square foot space out in West Chelsea. The restaurant, which he's developed in partnership with his Blue Smoke co-founder Mark Maynard-Parisi, will be an offshoot of that same small empire of barbecue restaurants. No details on the exact menu yet, but according to the announcement from Union Square Hospitality Group, there will be cocktails, local beer, and "soulful, Southern-inspired bar food."
Maynard-Parisi will be the main man overseeing the new spot, which as of now is slated to open in the fall of 2014 on the ground floor of the historic 1891 Waterfront New York Building on 11th Avenue.
