Welsh Food Comes to SoHo

While we aren’t all hankering away for Welsh food, it’s certainly good to know a new Welsh restaurant has come on the scene. Illtyd Barrett has opened an awesome restaurant for truly authentic and delicious food. The Sunken Hundred is located at Cobble Hill at 276 Smith Street. The bar and restaurant is named for the sunken kingdom of Cantre’r Gwaelod. The restaurant is decorated with paintings by Fran Evans who went to high school with the Barretts. Illtyd has contributed some of the artwork as well.

The great finds here include lamb, leeks and seafood. There is also seaweed, particularly nori-like laver, which they boil and then make into a paste. Chef Coughlan will be serving all sorts of Welsh classics including lamb pastry with tomato chutney and ffagodau. They are also offering local beers, Spanish ciders and wines from the Loire Valley and northern Spain.



High Court Opening Early 2017 for Your Wellness Needs

stones-1372677_960_720So this is a nice addition to the area. High Court is going to be opening in early 2017 and will be a wellness center where you can get a manicure, enjoy a wellness talk or go to a yoga class. The space is going to be designed by Gradient Architecture and Bower and, as they describe in a press release, will enable “individuals to realign, expand their thinking, and connect with likeminded others.”

For those who just couldn’t wait for next year – there was a pop-up house from July 13-16 in Tribeca where people were able to give this idea a try. There was meditation, yoga, workshops, art installations and more. 200 memberships were available for the pop-up.
