Start spreading the news. It’s open today. You want to be a part of it. The new York on York.
Yep, the old Wild Hare in Highland Park got a rustic/industrial makeover and is serving dinner and drinks.
Grab a booth or a spot on the burlap banquet and knock back a glass of red, white, or bubbly or down a beer from the import and craft American brew options, including many 22-ounce bottles.
Read the way-better food menu (courtesy of Caramelized Productions, a.k.a. The Food Dudes) on giant chalkboards hung from exposed brick walls. Dishes come and go, but for now chow down on chicken wings, gem lettuce salad, or the burger and snacky bits like fried chickpeas, almonds, or the cheese plate. (Fingers crossed you catch the peach cobbler — made with fruit from the tree out back.)
Don’t forget to bring a few singles for the jukebox.
Or else you might have to sing for your supper.
The York, 5018 York Boulevard, between Avenues 50 and 51, Highland Park (323-255-9675 or theyorkonyork.com).
