Expect the star chef to reprise crowd pleasers from his Chefs Club residency—think con’con and house roti. New additions include Chinese pork sausages and a never-before-seen “AfroPot” for two that includes king crab, prawns, corn, clams, and mussels.
Johnson will be joined behind the bar by longtime friend and mixologist Pam Wiznitzer, who has created a seasonal cocktail program for the spot.
In the fall, Johnson will also debut a fast-casual location called Fieldtrip in Harlem. The concept will offer customers a menu of rice bowls, buns, salads, and dumplings to start, with a variety of melting pot ingredients. A preview of dishes from Fieldtrip will be offered to attendees of the U.S. Open through September 9, 2018.
