Status: Opens tonight

The East Pole, the new restaurant from the team behind the Fat Radish and The Leadbelly, opens tonight on East 65th Street. Owners Ben Towill and Phil Winser have teamed up with the Martignetti brothers, of Brinkley's, for the new place, which takes up the Upper East Side brownstone once occupied by 212 Restaurant and Bar. The restaurant occupies two floors, with a private dining room as well as a bar on the upper level. There's also outdoor garden seating beneath an arbor for the warm weather months.

Nicholas Wilber, the chef at the Fat Radish, has moved Uptown to head up the kitchen at The East Pole. He's serving a menu that is similar to but "less rustic" than the one at the Fat Radish. There are quite a few vegetables on the menu, and a "macro plate" like the one served at Fat Radish. But it also includes a pork ossobucco, chicken Kiev, and the Fat Radish's bacon cheeseburger. Take a look at the full menu after the jump.
