Greenhouse, Juliet Supper Club Owner Opening RSVP in SoHo
Just got word about a new restaurant opening in the SoHo space that used to house Tresanti, a short lived pizza spot that debuted last year. The new eatery at this location, dubbed RSVP,will serve modern American dishes from chef Seth Levine. The haunt is from Jon Bakhshi (aka Jon B. to industry types) who owns Greenhouse and was one of the original folks behind ill-fated Juliet Supper Club. True to the style of those two joints, RSVP's promotional materials are playing up the sexy angle of the space, claiming "from the moment one enters the restaurant, the flirtation begins." Yikes - is it getting hot in here?
A sunken dining room will sit underneath crystal chandeliers, and there will be additional seating on raised balconies. In the food department, think foie gras dumplings, truffle honey rack of lamb and lobster ravioli. The restaurant will also serve brunch all day, so if you want peanut butter and jelly pancakes at 7:30 PM, go for it. While it sounds like its going to stray from the club-tastic vibe of Bakhshi's other spaces, there are hints of a scene. A press release notes "after dinner, RSVP will shift from a formal dining room to a sophisticated lounge where guests can enjoy a bottle of champagne, rose or one of the venues signature cocktails."
That said, it only plans to stay open on Friday and Saturdays until 2 AM, so it can't get too crazy, right? The scheduled opening date is June 7, stay tuned to 15 Watts Street until then.
