Gabriel Kreuther to Bring Back His Famed Tarte Flambee at His Bryant Park Restaurant

He'll serve not one but four different kinds

Daniel Krieger

Gabriel Kreuther, the Alsatian chef who earned one Michelin star and two three-star review from the Times for Danny Meyer's MoMA restaurant, the Modern, is expected to open his solo project in Midtown's Grace Building within the month. So far even the name is still a mystery (though it's been nicknamed Gabriel), but the Wall Street Journal has managed to drum up a few new details.

First of all, he will not only be serving his classic tarte flambee, the dish he made an untouchable part of the Modern's menu, he will be serving four different kinds of tarte flambee, one made with uni and horseradish. The decor of the restaurant, meanwhile, features salvaged 19th century wood beams, dark green tiles, and lots of "stork imagery," to symbolize creativity and rebirth (meaning Kreuther's rebirth after the Modern?). But again, the key thing here is the tarte flambee, which Kreuther explained to Eater back in 2013:

Update: A rep responds that the restaurant finally does have a name. It will be called not Gabriel but Gabriel Kreuther. The opening is supposedly still up in the air, so it may actually be more than a month until the restaurant opens.
