Telepan Local opens in Tribeca

Bill Telepan launches a downtown small-plates sibling to his eponymous Upper West Side eatery.


Bill Telepan had a busy 2013—along with redesigning his eight-year-old Upper West Side namesake, the locavore champion also branched off with this small-plates spot in Tribeca, expected to open by December 25th. A more casual undertaking than his Michelin-starred flagship, the menu features shareable snacks like foie gras doughnuts and shrimp poppers with green-chili aioli. To sate more ample appetites, the 80-seat spot—decorated with wood banquettes and spherical lamps—also offers grilled short ribs and quail à l'orange. See the opening menu below. 329 Greenwich St between Duane and Jay Sts (212-966-9255,
