Limited tickets to Roister, the mid-priced Alinea Group restaurant, are available

The highly anticipated opening of Roister, the Alinea Group's mid-priced concept, is expected to be here any day. Earlier today, Eater reported that Tock—the ticketing site—was up, but that no tickets were available. But it appears as though that at least some are available from April 1–17 for both an a la carte menu ($10 per person) and the Hearth menu ($85 per person), a daily chef's tasting menu.

Still no words on the menu, the official opening date or when more tickets will be available, but it looks like the current tickets for the a la carte menu will get you a seat in the main dining room, while the Hearth reservation will score you seats at the Roister kitchen bar. These are sure to go quick, so grab your reservations while you can.

Update: In a post on Medium, Nick Kokonas revealed a few more details about Roister, including an official opening date of April 1. The restaurant will be open for dinner Wednesday–Sunday for now with a limited number of walk-in tables, but will open for lunch later in the month and have basement prep kitchen experiences available. Dishes run from $10–$30 on average, (with a few outliers like A-5 Japanese Wagyu for two to six people for $125) and the menu includes items like maple-poached salmon with egg yolk, ramps and romanesco and soy dusted fries with bonito flakes, rice vinegar and tofu mayo.
