Terroir Murray Hill has been sitting empty since it shuttered abruptly this March, but Craft alum and friend of one-Terroir co-owner Marco Canora, Ed Carew is getting ready to open a casual chicken spot called Broken Spoke Rotisserie there, tentatively on July 22. Despite the new concept, the space still looks very much like Terroir, Carew simply repainted, expanded the kitchen a bit, and added an "old Rotisol we picked up," he says.
There will of course be chicken, "but by no means [is the menu] limited to just that bird," he says. No word on what else will make appearances, but Carew and his business partner Kim Belk (formerly of Foragers Market) want to keep things things simple. There's "not a whole lot of gilding the lily going on," adds Carew. The duo has a full liquor license, so there will be cocktails and bottles of wine under $50 to go with that chicken, that is, when eating in-house. Carew is planning to offer take out and delivery "for sure." Because, let's face it, picking up a solid rotisserie chicken is one of the easiest means to faking your way through a dinner for friends that you "just threw together after work."
Here's that interior. Looks familiar, right?
