Zadie's Oyster Room opens tonight on East 12th Street

Hearth owner Marco Canora has revamped his nearby wine bar Fifty Paces .... he is reopening the space as Zadie's Oyster Room tonight.

Per a Zadie's rep:

Inspired by the oyster houses prevalent in late 19th Century/early 20th Century New York, Zadie's will serve oysters every style: raw, baked, broiled, steamed, fried, pickled & poached, accompanied by dishes like caesar salad, kelp coleslaw + brown bread with anchovy butter, washed down with a selection of beer, wine and champagne.

You can find the menu and hours at the Zadie's website here. Zadie's is at 413 E. 12th St. between First Avenue and Avenue A.

Hearth debuts its sidewalk cafe; Black Market too

It's finally a reality. Outdoor seating @hearthrestaurant #twoyearsinthemaking

A photo posted by Marco Canora (@marcocanora) on

Hearth now has six tables (with two chairs each) set up for diners on First Avenue and East 12th Street... it's a scaled-back version of what was previously proposed last summer with 38 seats total.

Meanwhile, over on Avenue A at East Seventh Street, Black Market rolled out their sidewalk cafe this past weekend...

Former Terroir space quickly converted into Fifty Paces on East 12th Street

[Image via]

The original East Village outpost of the wine bar Terroir at 413 E. 12th St. between Avenue A and First Avenue closed after service this past Saturday night.

And as promised, Hearth chef-owner Marco Canora quickly turned the space around — the new venture, Fifty Paces, debuts tonight, as Eater first reported.

We'll head to Eater (who also posted the menu) for more:

The drink menu at Fifty Paces is still focused on wines by the glass, served in either three or six ounce pours, and also includes a few sherries and ciders, and a handful of beers ... The food menu, meanwhile, now consists of dishes "inspired by" the food at Hearth. It's an on-trend bar menu, with small snacks, toasts, and large shared plates like pork ragu sloppy joes, yoshi fried chicken, and braised rabbit legs with polenta.

Fifty Paces will also serve some of the broth that Canora sells at Brodo, the newish to-go spot on First Avenue.

This Terroir closed after six years following a business split between Canora and Paul Grieco, who will continue operating three of the other wine bar locations in the city.

Previously on EV Grieve:
Terroir closes tomorrow night on East 12th Street; new concept on the way soon

Terroir closes tomorrow night on East 12th Street; new concept on the way soon

[Image via]

As Eater reported last month, the original East Village outpost of the wine bar Terroir at 413 E. 12th St. between Avenue A and First Avenue closes after business tomorrow night.

It reportedly has something to do with the business split of Paul Grieco and Hearth chef Marco Canora. Grieco will be running the other Terroir locations and Canora will carry on with Hearth, Brodo and what the former East 12th Street Terroir space becomes.

Whatever the new concept is, it looks to be debuting very soon...

People apparently are enjoying their bone broth to go on 1st Avenue

[EVG file photo]

Hearth chef/owner Marco Canora added a new to-go window (door?) on the First Avenue side of the restaurant back on Nov. 3.

And people seem to like his bone broth and soups, which cost between $4 and $9. Crain's reports that the to-go business, called Brodo (Italian for broth), is attracting 200 customers a day.

Eater notes that the demand is such that Canora had to install a second stove for Brodo inside Hearth at East 12th Street.

Back to Crain's:

Mr. Canora said his new concept comes as the result of personal health issues, the rising popularity of broth and a desire to utilize Hearth's unused space. After January, he hopes to add vegetarian and seafood broths. He also plans to operate Brodo year-round. For the summer, he's considering serving refreshments such as tomato juice as well as a cucumber-fennel concoction, both with broth ice cubes.

Soup and broth to go starting today at Brodo on 1st Avenue

Hearth chef Marco Canora has added a new to-go window (door?) on the First Avenue side of the restaurant.

And starting today, you can get broth and soup at Brodo (Italian for broth) ...

Here's the menu (you can click on the image for the details) …

Canora talked with New York magazine/Grub Street, who first reported on Brodo, about how all this came about:

“Twenty years of eating bread, drinking booze, smoking cigarettes, and working in kitchens really fucked me up in a big way.”

Until quite recently, you see, Canora was not the epitome of good health. He’d been diagnosed as pre-diabetic, he was suffering from gout, his cholesterol was through the roof, and he was thirty pounds overweight. Now, at 45, having made some major changes in his diet, he says he’s in the best shape of his life. And he attributes not a small part of this reversal of fortune to daily doses of the broth he’s always made as a base for Hearth’s soups and stocks.

Hearth is located at 403 E. 12th St.

Someone stole the bench from outside Hearth last night

On East 12th Street at First Avenue.

Per the restaurant's Instagram account: "Our bench has been taken on an adventure...who steals a bench anyway?"

Well, those kids in the new garden apartments at [redacted] are paying top dollar for this stuff. We'll see if we can get a before photo of the bench to share...

Updated 1 p.m.

EVG reader dwg happened to have a photo of the bench in the archives...

Residents, Hearth to meet about proposed sidewalk cafe

Hearth, the well-regarded restaurant at 403 E. 12th St. at First Avenue, is applying for a sidewalk cafe during this month's CB3/SLA licensing meeting.

While residents feel as if Hearth is a quality restaurant and a good neighbor, there are concerns about the proposed 38-seat sidewalk cafe. (Residents are also sympathetic to the fact that Hearth's landlord recently hit the restaurant with a 65-percent rent hike.)

So residents and members of the North Avenue A Neighborhood Association are meeting with Hearth reps tomorrow night at 7 to discuss the plans. The meeting is in the office of the East Village Community Coalition, which is located just off the lobby in the Christodora House, 143 Avenue B.

Here's a diagram of the East 12th Street side of the restaurant that Hearth submitted.

[Click on image for a better view]

One Association member said there is already a lot of "pedestrian congestion" in the area around First Avenue and East 12th Street with especially high foot traffic from the L train stop at East 14th Street.

"And now with 160 new apartments scheduled to be built at the corner of East 12th Street and Avenue A, it seems the congestion will only increase," the member said.

Report: Hearth hit with a 65% rent increase; plus, sidewalk cafe in the works

Meant to note this the other day... when the Times reported that Danny Meyer's 30-year-old Union Square Cafe will be looking for a new home next year after a rent increase.

The article noted a recent spate of high-profile closings and a continuing rise in rents downtown. Among the restaurants facing a huge rent hike: the well-regarded Hearth on East 12th Street at First Avenue. They were just hit with a 65 percent increase, according to the Times.

There aren't any plans to close the place, but ...

[T]he chef and owner, Marco Canora, said his entire business model may have to change.

“I’m trying to be a smart businessman,” Mr. Canora said. “But I can’t do that at the cost of turning my back on my entire belief system and serving commodity pork and Perdue chicken.”

Meanwhile, here's one way to help increase revenue: Hearth has applied for a sidewalk cafe. They are on the docket for the CB3/SLA committee meeting on July 14.
