Marco Canora has pulled off a lightning fast turnaround in the space that, until this weekend, housed the original East Village outpost of Terroir, the wine bar he opened with Paul Grieco six years ago. Tomorrow night, he reopens the diminutive space next to his restaurant, Hearth, as a new bar called Fifty Paces.
The drink menu at Fifty Paces is still focused on wines by the glass, served in either three or six ounce pours, and also includes a few sherries and ciders, and a handful of beers. Hearth's entire bottle list is also available. The food menu, meanwhile, now consists of dishes "inspired by" the food at Hearth. It's an on-trend bar menu, with small snacks, toasts, and large shared plates like pork ragu sloppy joes, yoshi fried chicken, and braised rabbit legs with polenta. This being Marco Canora we're talking about, there are also bowls. These come in two flavors, beef or chicken, and actually include enough other ingredients (grains, vegetables, beef neck, chicken meatballs, etc.) to make them more like soup than like the cups of pure bone broth served at the real deal Brodo. Check out the full menu below.
Meanwhile, three other Terroirs still operate in Murray Hill, Tribeca, and near the High Line. They're now owned solely by Paul Grieco, who split with Canora back in December
