An interesting take on Spanish flavors will be descending on New York City for a few months. From December 4th to February 1st, Chef Katie Button and the team from Cúrate, in Asheville, North Carolina, will be heading to the Big Apple to offer a pop-up restaurant and bring their version of Spain to the locals.
For Button’s residency, she will be taking over Chefs Club, on 275 Mulberry Street in NoLita, offering an “experience that recalls Spain’s bustling vermuterías and lively tapas culture, inspired by Button’s years working for Ferran Adrià and José Andrés,” according to resy.com.
Menu highlights are expected to include starters like acorn-fed Ibérico ham and cockles served with potato chips with a house-made vermouth sauce, as well as tapas like Segovia-style roast suckling pig, braised rabbit, salt cod fritters with North Carolina honey, and paella-style noodles cooked with squid ink. There will also be an all-Spanish wine list available.
Button is a James Beard Award-nominated chef and her restaurant in North Carolina has received awards and attention from The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. Button has received many accolades and distinctions during her career.
