On Tuesday Tribeca will get a new dining option: Plein Sud, a 90-seat French bistro and lounge by Parisian restaurateur Frederick Lesort located on the ground floor of Jason Pomeranc's Smyth Hotel.
"My goal was to create a neighborhood restaurant that takes its energy from Wall Street but first and foremost from the strong residential basis of the neighborhood," says Lesort, whose other establishments include Opia and Matisse. "This is a restaurant for New Yorkers."
Indeed, New Yorkers who never sleep: Chef Ed Cotton (former chef de
cuisine at BLT Market) will serve market-fresh eats virtually 'round the
clock for breakfast, lunch and dinner. What's more, there's also a
2,500 square foot subterranean lounge bar, perfect for a nightcap.
