Saturday, June 30 will mark the last day for Dovetail, a one-Michelin-starred fine dining restaurant on the Upper West Side. Open since 2007, it was a seminal restaurant for chef John Fraser, who recently sold his shares to focus on his downtown empire of Nix, Narcissa, Narcbar, and the Loyal.
General manager David Gagnon tells Eater that owners will renovate the restaurant over the summer and reopen it post Labor Day with a new concept and chef. Some employees are staying through the changes, though others are moving on. Gagnon declined to say anything about what the restaurant will become.
During its 11 and a half years, the restaurant racked up tons of acclaim, including that Michelin star, three stars in the Times, many months on Eater’s 38 essential list, and on several best of UWS dining lists. It was also renowned for its vegetarian tasting menu.
Stay tuned for more information on what’s to come in the space at 103 West 77th St. near Columbus Avenue.
