Telepan, the market-driven New American cuisine restaurant on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, will celebrate 10 years of service this year — and chef Bill Telepan offering his signature tasting menu at its price from 2005, when the restaurant opened.
From August 17 until September 20, Telepan will serve the tasting menu — updated with seasonal changes — for $45 for three courses, or $55 for four courses.
That menu features house favorites like house-smoked brook trout served with a corn blini and green onion sour cream, and Flying Pigs Farm heritage pork , Southern-style with a barbecue twist, plus granita parfait with fresh summer strawberries and Telepan’s famous peanut butter and chocolate gianduja for dessert.
During this time, the regular à la carte menu will also be available.
“I think while the neighborhood and the industry have certainly changed, my own focus as a chef and restaurant owner has stayed the same,” Telepan told The Daily Meal, reflecting on the evolution of his restaurant over the last decade. “From the day we opened, I've always focused on offering fresh, seasonal ingredients that are sourced locally and incredibly delicious. My business partner and I wanted to build a neighborhood restaurant and become a strong part of the Upper West Side community. Over these past 10 years, I think that's exactly what we've done.”
