The New York outpost of Ilan Hall's LA restaurant The Gorbals opens for dinner tonight in Williamsburg's new Urban Outfitters "concept store" Space Ninety 8. The menu features several dishes cooked over the restaurant's large wood-fire grill, including lamb ribs, porgy with bonito butter, and bone marrow with hen of the woods mushrooms and creamed walnuts. Other items include banh mi poutine, whole roasted pig head, and the well-known cheeky bacon-wrapped matzo balls. The promised large-format schnitzel "with the hoof still on" turns out to be a "chicken schnitzel with talon."
The restaurant is located just above the menswear department, and will also run the space's rooftop bar, which has intimate canvas tents with wooden stump seating. Reservations are now up on Opentable. Check out the full menu below and stay tuned for photos.
