Nicholas Wilber, the chef at the Fat Radish, has moved Uptown to head up the kitchen at The East Pole. He’s serving a menu that is similar to but “less rustic” than the one at the Fat Radish. There are quite a few vegetables on the menu, and a “macro plate” like the one served at Fat Radish. But it also includes a pork ossobucco, chicken Kiev, and the Fat Radish’s bacon cheeseburger.
The nautical décor evokes “old days of exploration,” and the vintage maps come from the Winser family’s personal collection. Plus: There are two floors, a private dining room, and outdoor seating.
