In T minus 15 minutes, Avec will re-open to the world. It has been shuttered since an Aug. 9 fire. It is reopening with a new stove and a slew of new dishes, including whole roasted foie gras and mortadella mousse (but those chorizo-stuffed, bacon-wrapped dates ain't gone nowhere). Desserts have been expanded as well; crepes with homemade Nutella, anyone?
Here's one (pictured): "Chicken thigh gourgere (holy shit) with parm rather than gruyere (Koren [Grieveson, Avec's chef de cuisine] called it a hot pocket)."
Welcome back, Avec.
