Keith McNally’s Pastis was an iconic fixture of the New York dining scene since it opened in 1999, known for serving steak frites to an A-list celebrity crowd including regulars Anna Wintour, Martha Stewart, and Sarah Jessica Parker (it also made regular appearances on “Sex and the City”). Replicating the vibe of an early 20-century French brasserie in the middle of the industrial Meatpacking District, the influential spot was credited with transforming the neighborhood into one of the city’s top dining destinations. Since it shuttered its doors in 2014, McNally has been resolved to reopen and now the anticipated arrival of Pastis 2.0 is almost here. Referred to as “the biggest comeback in NYC dining in years,” Pastis is set to open at its new West Village location, 52 Gansevoort Street, in just one month, Eater reports.
