And just the way we like it. Getting the scoop from a regular.

Yes, indeed, the trusted eyes and ears of the street, Mark James, who was saddened by the loss of Knife + Fork NOW happily reports:

“The restaurant is re-opening as the restaurant of Percy’s Tavern, which is opening on the corner of 13th Street and Avenue A. It’s a gastropub. It will seat 80 inside and 30 outside. They will do lunch, dinner and a traditional Sunday lunch. The plan on putting a twist on the Celtic culture and using farm table. They are aiming to open the first or second week of October.”

Straight from their Facebook page: Percy’s Tavern (aka the old Knife + Fork) is promoting some yummy concoctions: Squid mackerel burger, venison & duck egg, veal with smoked bone marrow along with traditional favorites are all matched with selected beers from small artisan producers from around the world to compliment each dish.

Sign me, up.
