We haven’t heard much about n’eat since it opened in November. Despite its beefcake chef, the ambitious East Village newcomer hasn’t managed to garner the buzz of other New Nordic eateries, like the rebooted Aska in Williamsburg. That may well change with two new chefs, both of whom have some serious New Nordic bonafides. Chef Yelena Del Mundo, who replaces Gabriel Hedlund, comes to the restaurant after two years as sous chef at Atera, a seriously spendy Tribeca spot that advertises a “continuously sensory tasting menu experience.”
Eve Yeung, meanwhile, has spent the past two years at Noma, the mecca of New Nordic cuisine. According to a press release, she’ll focus on R&D in addition to “creating new dishes to add to the menu before she heads to Tulum to assist with NOMA’s next pop-up series come this April.” (Heard that, foodies? Noma pop-up in Tulum. Get your pocketbooks and your Instas ready.)
Here’s a look at the new menu. Christmas-tree parfait, anyone?
