Vincent Chirico, the chef and serial restaurateur behind Coarse in the West Village and Vai on the Upper West Side, opened a new restaurant today in Sunset Park’s Industry City. We got some photos and a copy of the menu.
Looks like the equally cryptically named “Filament” (full title: Filament at The Landing) is a pescatarian-friendly gastropub featuring dishes like charred octopus and hamachi. The menu seems pretty reasonably priced, with plates in the $14-15 range. For us hungry and carnivorous Ron Swanson types, there is also a $28 ribeye steak with patatas grandas. The drinks menu has a full selection of craft beers, cocktails, and coffee.
There’s both indoor and outdoor dining and, for recreation, shuffleboard and pool tables. That should pair nicely with the ping-pong and mini golf at another new Industry City restaurant, The Wheelhouse, a satellite of beloved floating restaurant The Frying Pan.
Filament at the Landing, Industry City, 220 36th Street, Sunset Park; open Mon-Tue 9:30am–8pm, Wed-Fri 9:30-10pm, Sat. noon-10pm, and Sun noon-6pm.
