After months and months of anticipation, chef Paul Liebrandt will open his follow-up to Corton, The Elm, tomorrow evening. This is the first time that a chef with two Michelin stars has ever opened a restaurant in Brooklyn.* The restaurant sits in the subterranean space below the King & Grove hotel that once house Pillar & Plough. At recent preview dinners, Liebrandt served things like lamb neck with charred eggplant, foie gras with spiced plum gelee, and chicken Kiev. He's also mentioned plans to serve steak frites, and you might find a burger on the menu at some point in time. Take a look around the space below, and check back for the menus and more tomorrow.

* Technically, David Chang has two Michelin stars (from Ko), and he has two bakeries in Brooklyn. But they're not sit-down restaurants.
