Morimoto's Comfort-Food-Focused TriBeCa Canvas Opening Tomorrow

Tomorrow night, New Yorkers will finally get a taste of "Morimoto-style comfort food" when the chef's long awaited TriBeCa Canvas opens on Church Street. The project has been in the works for well over two years (witness our first mention of it way back in August 2010) - the Iron Chef will provide a unique take on American comfort food, eschewing the sushi and sashimi served at his other venues. The bistro-style menu will be served well into the night (the industry friendly eatery posted a closing time of 4 AM), and guests can expect dishes like macaroni and cheese topped with a poached egg and deep fried rainbow trout with a spicy tofu sauce.

Lushes take note: though the restaurant will open tomorrow for diner service, they still don't have their liquor license due to Sandy-related delays, so you might want to wait to drop by if you must have tipple with your sustenance. The eatery is named after the five 65-foot-long canvases that are draped around the space. Although the striking paintings of black trees won't make you tipsy, perhaps they'll provide a different type of nourishment (313 Church St.; 917-720-2845).
