Pillar & Plough

PERMANENTLY CLOSED

New York

Because the easiest way to be hip is to just eat so much you have huge ones, Pillar & Plough's setting up shop just south of the city's most-jorts-per-capita park, at the Hotel Williamsburg. The French-fluenced restaurant boasts a local veteran of some of the world's top spots (Bouley, Paris' L'Arpegeā€¦), and an airy, sunken, mod space whose open kitchen can be marveled at from a chef's counter by people who are probably not chefs.
