Bar Tartine

It's almost impossible to keep up with what's happening these days at the inventive Bar Tartine. In brief: There's a new lunch counter, with open-face sandwiches on Chad Robertson's rye bread, and chopped salads combining Nick Balla and Cortney Burns' house-made meats, pickles and cheeses (yes, cheeses). And the Monday-night "Curiosities Series" is hosting well-known guests such as Sandor Katz (9/17) and Danish chef Bo Bech (9/24). See our previous coverage.
