Most of the details about George Mendes's new "rustic Portuguese" project in Chelsea are still top secret, but the head of the construction crew handed off a few tasty morsels to a member of the Eater crew. This past summer, Mendes tweeted that the restaurant would have a wood oven. The construction team adds that it will also sport a coffee bar and a raw bar, plus a take-out window. The team has already poured over $1 million into the project, which was originally slated to open this month, and then sometime in January. For the looks of things, New Yorkers will have to wait a little while longer.
Keep those eyes peeled for a take-away window right here:
