Sound the alarm, y’all. Belly & Trumpet is now open on McKinney Avenue, replacing The Bowery, which is reportedly on the move.
This! This is one sexy new hotspot. It’s my favorite type of new restaurant: one that’s fucking delicious. And you’ll want to take a look at the post, featuring alluring photography by the lovely and talented Catherine Downes to get the full effect. But the short story is this: If you like Oak, The Mansion, Steel, The Bowery and/or anything beautiful and delicious, you will love Belly & Trumpet. The cocktails are killer, and it’s shared plates which means A) yeah, it’s pricey, but B) you get to try LOTS of different items.
Just don’t call it “tapas,” K?
Personally, I’m excited to have another go-to recommendation when folks ask me what’s the latest and greatest.
Also, because I just can’t help myself:
TRUMPET CRUMPET STRUMPET!!
Happy Monday, my darlings. It’s going to be a crazy week.
