So, there has actually been a change of plans over at Dave Reiss' Beechwood. Back in June Roy Choi (Kogi) signed on to help improve the restaurant's New American fare, meanwhile a slight retool was planned for aesthetic purposes. That was the intent. Last night at the Montage during a Happy (three) Hour(s) held for The Taste, Roy plus team divulged that Beechwood will shutter indefinitely! Not only that, but Roy and Reiss will introduce an entirely new eating establishment with a whole new look and new West Indian menu. Right now the new restaurant's name is still tbd, and the goal is to close Beechwood toward the end of October and reopen the new spot on November 1.
