Yay! Looks like it's open to the public starting Saturday? Can't wait... please do share your first impressions!
I admit, the description of the items all sound delicious, but what exactly about this menu qualifies these as even pseudo-Indian cuisine? Just because they're served in little metal cups? Thali-style, perhaps, but seriously, does the picture in the post REALLY compare to this, for example?
Er, I MEANT to link to the picture from Poppy's web site:
@2: that's the point, from what I've read. It's more about thali-style, rather than Indian food. In fact, Traunfeld had specifically said that the food will not be Indian, that he was more inspired by the presentation and the idea of a thali and wanted to transcribe that to a different style of food.
Lettuce soup and fennel pollen. Even their desserts sound awful.
Sooooo, that means - what? It's more like tapas, but served Thali-style, and prix fixe as well?
Um, okay. Where I come from, we'd call that "a mule that thinks it's a horse."
I am going to give it a try. I live about a block north and have walked by the remodeling of it (and the construction on that end of Broadway) for months now. It is now to see the Poppy, er, bloom. I anticipate fine service and tasty fare.
I am also eager to go to Vivace once it opens as another coffee option besides the always great and perfect Joe Bar.
@6 that makes you sound like a jackass.
In the old Elite days, there was parking behind the building, quite handy and free.
Check it out. Pricey for Bwy. at the moment.
After 500 more units of housing are full, the demand should be greater.
My taste is simply good NW seafood prepared with fresh ingredients and little seasoning. Oh well, pan fried oysters at Mc Cormicks on 4th ave. are excellent - 20.00. Well done, very fresh and rich and filling.
