The eclectic restaurant moves into the site occupied by Comtesse Therese Bistro for the last three and one-half years.

Its chef is Lenny Campanelli, who recently cooked at CoolFish, a former Schaudel restaurant in Syosset. His menu takes in a raw bar, charcuterie, a cheese board, soups and salads, plus pastas and small plates.

Typical dishes on the work-in-progress menu include crisply fried kale with smoked mushrooms and egg, grilled onions and mustard vinaigrette; green-tea smoked duck breast with soba noodles; housemade mushroom-and-potato ravioli with black truffle butter; tuna "pizza" with scallion pancake and wasabi aioli; spiced yellowfin tuna with red curry vinaigrette; seared Arctic char with ratatouille; and a Black Angus burger with fruitwood-smoked bacon, aged white Cheddar, foie gras butter and black truffle aioli.

The price range is $30 to $50 per person.
