From Eater:
West Village French brasserie and steakhouse Boucherie has expanded to Gramercy Park with Boucherie Park Avenue South. The new location is also run by The Group, which owns Akashi and Dominique Bistro, and executive chef Jerome Dihui, who previously worked as chef de cuisine at Keith McNally’s now-shuttered Meatpacking bistro Pastis.

The new 222-seat space — located at 225 Park Avenue South, between East 18th and 19th streets — features standard Parisian brasserie decor like mosaic tile floors, wood-framed mirrors, and wooden tables, as well as original Belle Époque posters. There’s a pewter bar and a separate 40-seat private dining room. It’s a slight downsize from the 320-seat original location, which opened in a former garage in 2016 as a massive but romantic restaurant with classic bistro fare.

Boucherie Park Avenue South, as with the original Boucherie, focuses on meat and butchery with dishes like a filet mignon for two and a veal porterhouse with enoki mushrooms, sweetbreads, and veal jus. The new restaurant will also similarly feature typical Parisian bistro food like escargot and coq au vin, a red-wine-braised chicken with vegetables, mushrooms, and lardon. (Read more.)
