General Assembly Restaurant and Bar opened March 5 in the former Hurricane Club Steak and Sushi space on 360 Park Avenue South at 26th Street. Chef Craig Koketsu, formerly of Quality Meats and the now-shuttered Park Avenue, helms the kitchen at the massive, 170-seat restaurant. Diners can expect seasonal dishes featuring locally-sourced ingredients, such as fried skate wing with a lentil crust and grilled porgy with Swiss chard puttanesca.

Traditional desserts get an elevated twist: think apple-ginger sorbet and sticky toffee pudding, or choose from an array of éclairs, which are presented tableside. The drinks menu features more than 130 wines, cocktails infused with herbs and house-made tonics and an extensive craft beer list that includes General Assembly Saison, a hoppy, bespoke brew from Kelso Beer Co.

General Assembly opens nightly at 5:30 p.m. and is now taking reservations.
