Pearl & Ash, Frej Alum Richard Kuo's Bowery Restaurant

[Daniel Krieger]

On Monday, chef Richard Kuo and hotelier Alessandro Zampedri opened Pearl & Ash in the space that formerly housed Bowery Kitchen. Before coming to this restaurant, Kuo earned raves as one half of short-lived Scandinavian pop-up Frej. The menu features many fish dishes as well as things like short rib with chanterelles, and quail with pomegranate and chicken skin. In an interesting twist, a lot of the menu items can be ordered in either appetizer or entree portions. The beverage list from Eben Klemm includes cocktails made with sherry, port, and vermouth. Patrick Cappiello is in charge of the wine list.
