A Peek at the Build-Out of Drew Nieporent's Bâtard

The Bâtard trio; the old Corton space

The team behind Bâtard, the most anticipated restaurant of spring/summer 2014, has been quietly documenting every step of the build-out of the space on Instagram. The Bâtard partners have also shared scenes of dish testing, menu design, working lunches, and a visit to the pottery studio that's making all of the plates for the restaurant. The film A Matter of Taste documented Montrachet being transformed into Corton, and now, via Instagram, we see the Corton space being turned into Bâtard.

Here are some choice shots of the build-out of this major project from Drew Nieporent, John Winterman, and Markus Glocker:

If everything goes according to plan, the new restaurant from Drew Nieporent, Markus Glocker, and John Winterman will open in June.
