When Corton chef Paul Liebrandt announced he would open The Elm in Williamsburg's King & Grove Hotel a couple weeks ago, all signs pointed toward a more casual destination that would fit well with the laid-back hood. Well, a few more details are coming out about the eatery, which will be housed in the former Pillar & Plough space.
While most of the menu will feature fare that is described as "accessible French-inspired cuisine," we hear that there will be an eight-seat chefs counter that will serve as a "restaurant within a restaurant." A different tasting menu will be served each night, and we assume this is Brooklyn diners will be able to camp out if they want to see the famed chef's high end magic. The Elm is opening this summer, and the chef's counter will debut at a later date.
