The good, the bad and the Ugly Kitchen

Sorry, a little early for that headline...

Here on Restaurant (turnover) Row on First Avenue, Grub Street noted that Ugly Kitchen is likely Soft Opening this week at the now-departed Veloce Pizzeria space.

This past weekend, a Very Special Tipster© caught a glimpse of Ugly Kitchen's exterior ...

...and here is the Soft Opening drink menu ... starting with an $11 Cucumber Peach Martini described as "Organic Cucumber Vodka and peach."

... and the food menu.

We rather like the reflection of the Golden Arches in the menu.

Anyone know what happened to the tree in front of this address?

The tree was taken down during Irene. The interior of Ugly looked pretty nice and the menu seems alright. Good Luck.

What happened to a nice pleasant name for a restaurant. everything these days gotta be couched in irony or pretense or self-aggrandizement. It's giving me fatigue.

(my verification word = 'grump'--heehee)
