The space at 1 Broad St. has been covered up for renovations for some time now, but the Instagram account from the Normandy Farm restaurant moving into the space showed off the interiors over the weekend. The first floor room is anchored by a reclaimed wood bar that doubles as the kitchen area — any visitors who have been to sister restaurant Bar Normandy will see the similarities in the two, though this one is much bigger. The ceilings are anchored by intricate crown molding, and the windows overlooking Broad Street go all the way up, letting in lots of natural light.
Officially titled Normandy at 1 Broad, instead of previously named The Room, the new establishment will be a breakfast/lunch/happy hour place with chef Kevin Getzewich (formerly of Indaco and The Macintosh) at the helm. He cites the former Two Boroughs Larder, New York’s Russ and Daughters, Los Angeles’ Sqirl, and Venice’s Gjusta as inspiration for the menu. This means global-inspired, carb-heavy, West-Coast-meets-Upper-West-Side type of fare. Baker Ben Johnson will supply the impeccable breads to the new space. Stop by Normandy Farm Bakery, at 19 Broad St., on Sundays, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., to sample the offerings before 1 Broad St. goes live.
Look for Normandy at 1 Broad to open this fall.
