The stall is located in the former Spotted Trotter space across from Gu’s Dumplings and in front of sister restaurant Bar Mercado. Chef Victoria Shore (Cooks & Soldiers, Double Zero, Bar Mercado) will head the kitchen.
Recess will focus on lighter, healthier dishes of mostly plant-based ingredients with a few meat and seafood options. Think grain bowls with barley, red quinoa, and eggplant-tahini puree, a shiitake and crimini mushroom patty with Swiss cheese, red cabbage, and mustard aioli on rye bread, or a lamb sandwich with minty pea mash, ricotta, and pickled fennel on ciabatta.
The beverage menu includes a small list of house cocktails, frozen cocktails, wine, and beer. Non-alcoholic options will also be available such as dtox juices, smoothies, kombucha, and tonics, like the turmeric tonic made with fresh turmeric, ginger, lemon, orange, peppercorn, and soda water.
Take a look at the food and drink menus for Recess opening Monday:
Open Sunday - Thursday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Weekend breakfast available on Saturday and Sunday beginning at 11 a.m.
