The Menu of Le Serpent, Open This Week

When we compile the Year in Eater for 2014, will this be the menu everyone raves about? Maybe.

Fresh off a soft launch and a hefty side of buzz, Le Serpent is officially open for dinner (and lunch next week). Partner Hubert Marsolais was good enough to share chef Michele Mercuri's menu, which, on paper, looks awesome.

What immediately stands out? The daily rôtisserie specials, like bourbon and maple glazed ribs with remoulade and Cornish hen with Brussels sprouts and bacon. You can probably bet that Mercuri's pasta will impress and Masami Waki, of Le Club Chasse et Pêche, is a skillful pastry chef.
