Here's a look around Hill & Dale, a new restaurant in the Lower East Side space that formerly housed Mary Queen of Scots and Allen & Delancey. This is the new project from the owners of The Brooklyneer, Le Bain veteran Elliott Carlson, and former Delicatessen staffer Ryan Steckowski. The owners describe Hill & Dale as a "gastrolounge" which is a made-up term that nobody will actually use. It's really a bar and restaurant serving shareable small plates of American and European food.
Dishes include "organic deviled eggs," tea sandwiches, chicken Cordon Bleu, oysters Rockefeller, wild boar sausage, "lobstercake Newburg," and a cheeseburger. Although the owners added some art deco touches to the space, they kept a lot of the details from Mary Queen of Scots — note the mirrored ceiling above the bar, the tile work in the dining room, and the chandelier in the back room.
Hill & Dale is now open for dinner and drinks. Take a look around and check out the menu below.
