Chef Sarah Simmons and her team at City Grit will open her fried chicken and Champagne restaurant, Birds & Bubbles in the Forsyth Street space that formerly held Grotto. Bowery Boogie notes that the restaurant is on the June Community Board 3 agenda, applying for a full liquor license in the basement-level space, and Simmons confirms the location. Bowery Boogie also hears reports of major renovations in the restaurant's back garden, but Simmons tells Eater, "we aren't knocking down any walls or tearing down any structures in the space...We are making some simple cosmetic changes, replacing some kitchen equipment and bringing in new furniture." Birds & Bubbles isn't slated to open until the end of the year, but Simmons did host a preview at City Grit last night, where she served dishes like milk-braised pork shanks with hominy as well as the namesake items.
