Dale Talde has been spending a lot of time on the other side of the Hudson lately with his partners David Massoni and John Bush. In late January they launched Carrino Provisions and just last night opened the second location of his hit Brooklyn restaurant Talde. The new space is a bit more modern than the original, with polished concrete floors and heavy rough wooden tables. It's somewhat plain itself, but is dotted with some interesting pieces of art like a Buddha's head on each booth, porcelain dolls, and an cluster of bulbous lanterns over the bar.
The menu offers some new dim sum options like the McBao (that's a bun with boneless char siu ribs and pickles), plus the dishes that Talde is famous for, including the bacon pad Thai and pretzel, pork and chive dumplings. Take a look around.
