Delphi still 'hangin,' with Brushtroke in the wings
A building on the northeast corner of West Broadway and Reade Street still sports remnants of long time Tribeca Mediterranean eatery Delphi only weeks before uber chef David Bouley is slated to open his Japanese restaurant Brushstroke in the space.
The new restaurant, expected to start serving in September, is named after the vintage painting on an exterior wall of the landmarked building.
Bouley is teaming up with Yoshiki Tsuji, president of Japans largest professional cooking school, the Tsuji Culinary Academy.
Though it's hard to see what's going on behind the brown paper covering the windows of the two-story building, the pair reportedly are planning a robata grill and a Japanese room with Western flourishes on the ground floor. An intimate, but upscale kaiseki dining room will occupy the second floor where elaborate Kyoto-style seasonal tasting menus will be served.
