After a two week revamp, Gabe Stulman's Chez Sardine is reopening today as Bar Sardine. Besides the name and address, the two places don't have all that much in common. Chef Mehdi Brunet-Benkritly has ditched the unconventional Japanese Izakaya menu for something more like a "neighborhood bar." Instead of breakfast pancakes with fish tartare, now the menu includes bar snacks like smoked bird rillettes, deviled eggs with soy and black garlic, burrata with radishes and boquerones, and arctic char tartare served with everything pretzels. There's also a house burger topped with smoked cheddar and raw oysters on offer.

The space has been changed to offer more seating at the bar, where Stulman's bar guru Brian Bartels has crafted a menu of drinks with names like "Parrothead Old Fashioned" (Coconut Barralito, rum, coffee-citrus bitters) and the "Save Big Money" (peanut pine liqueur, lemon, strawberry syrup and egg white). The bar will open at 6 p.m. today and will open at noon starting on Monday.
