A new American spot, 75 Main, is slated to open in Delray April 12. The space showcases a tailored bar, white walls, bold modern art, and glass doors that open to Atlantic Avenue.
An after-hours lounge bouys the back of the restaurant, lapped in coffee browns and dim lighting.
A sibling to the Hampton Italian restaurant, the original 75 Main is the setting for gossip columns when the likes of Jonah Hill and Dina Lohan dine there. Zach Erdem, restaurateur, has plans for future locations elsewhere.
Chef John Thomas will serve as executive chef, the former toque at The Seagate Hotel
and line cook at 32 East
for seven years. "I don't pigeonhole my style of cooking," he says. "I cook with the best ingredients I can find that results in simple straightforward food."
Among menu items on the draft is tomato confit bruschetta, seared big eye tuna, Hudson Valley foie gras, and pork belly banh mi sliders (see photo). The restaurant will also serve brunch daily.
