Earlier this month chef Andrew Burman, a Court Street Grocers vet, and Robert Honeycutt, former front-of-house manager at Gilt, opened The Runner in the space that once housed Anima. Equipped with a wood-fired oven, Burman serves a menu inspired by American cuisine circa 1900. Sides and appetizers include bone marrow with escargot, potato hash browns, and breads that range from popovers to tongue focaccia, while the "roasts" that make up the entree category include suckling pig with sauerkraut, hanger steak frites, and salt-baked trout. Take a look around the space, below.

Note: Last year Colin Devlin was planning to open a restaurant in this space. But a representative for The Runner tells Eater that it has no connection to the late restaurateur, or to the DuMont group.
