General Assembly Replaces New York’s Hurricane Club Tonight
General Assembly, the “casually sophisticated market driven grill” from Michael and Alan Stillman, will be opening tonight in at 360 Park Avenue South, in the space of the father-and-son team’s former Polynesian restaurant, The Hurricane Club, which closed in late 2013 after three years of service. General Assembly will feature American, French, and European cuisine from executive chef Craig Koketsu, formerly of Park Avenue and Quality Meats.
Chef Koketsu’s menu, which will focus heavily on locally-sourced ingredients, includes appetizers like uni toast, robiolina and pickled jalapeño, and a classic raclette service, served with fresh crudité.
Koketsu’s main dishes will include roast chicken with Pommery mustard sauce, fried skate wing with a lentil crust and bread and butter pickles, and two versions of steak frites, Colorado lamb and Creekstone beef.
General Assembly will also feature a full bar, with cocktails developed by head barman Bryan Schneider, including a Strictly Roots martini of Jamaican rum, fresh pressed carrot juice, ginger, and lime.
