High Street on Hudson — the highly-anticipated cafe from chef Eli Kulp, restaurateur Ellen Yin, and baker Alex Bois — will open to the public next Monday, according to Grub Street. The new West Village restaurant is an outpost of a New American cafe in Philadelphia that offers some of the most acclaimed breakfast sandwiches and pastries in the country. The New York version will serve some of the same fare, Grub Street reports.
Expect items like smoked whitefish on a black bialy, a roast pork sandwich with broccoli rabe, a beet-cured salmon sandwich, and breakfast sandwiches with house-made sausage and braised kale. Bread and pastries from Bois, a Sullivan Street Bakery alum, and chef Sam Kincaid, of Fork Restaurant, include a sticky toffee pudding with cream cheese frosting; a crepe cake with walnut butter, apple butter, and smoked ricotta with honey; and a new version of rye bread.
Initially, High Street was supposed to open in the fall, but Kulp was recovering from severe injuries from the Amtrak crash in May. The original location in Philadelphia, High Street on the Market, has received a lot of accolades since opening, including spots on best new restaurant lists and an Eater Award for Chef of the Year 2015. The New York location of the restaurant, at 637 Horatio St., will debut next week with breakfast and lunch, with dinner to come.
