If you’re obsessed with the American Bar salad (SFK style of course!), or the viral Saint Theo’s pasta, you’re in for a treat.
Grand Tour Hospitality, the restaurant group behind cult favorites like American Bar, Saint Theo’s, and celeb-magnet institution, Lambs Club, is launching Holiday Bar in the heart of Greenwich Village.
Holiday Bar will open in the former Cafe Clover space, combining “notes of ‘80s nostalgia with quirky Americana to transport guests to a golden era in New York when nightlife reigned supreme.”
And if the people-watching is anything like Lambs Club, you know you’re bound to see somebody important.
The dinner menu comes from Chefs Marc Howard (Tertulia, Betony, La Mercerie, and The Clocktower) and Dina Fan (Tertulia, Atoboy, Four Horseman, and Racines), so, naturally, we know it’s going to be delicious.
Drawing inspiration from seafood-centric cuisines throughout the world, the menu incorporates influences from Southeast Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, Africa, and the Caribbean.
Diners can expect a variety of appetizers, including King Crab, grilled prawns, and rockfish soup, alongside a menu of premium sushi and sashimi selections.
From a classic California roll, to a signature surf-and-turf Holiday Roll that marries Maine lobster with American Wagyu, the sushi menu does not disappoint.
As for entrees, patrons can indulge in squid pasta with smoked chili flakes and breadcrumbs, fried porgy with papaya, and Jerk chicken in a signature Caribbean hot sauce.
At the bar, Grand Tour Beverage Director Simon Sebbah designed a beverage program “inspired by an era that predates overly complicated signature cocktails.”
The bartenders are trained to mix a range of cocktails that cater to guest preference, from a Painkiller to a Ramos Gin Fizz.
The menu itself consists of a small martini section, because hey, what’s a meal without a martini?
