THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS Table 8 Restaurant Review

: Govind Armstrong may have fled back to Los Angeles, but his venture, Table 8, carries on. Housed in the sleek The Cooper Square Hotel in the East Village, this handsome restaurant boasts leather walls and bookcases, as well as a center-of-the-room charcuterie bar. The menu, leaning heavily on seasonal ingredients, boasts Armstrong relics like the grilled chicken with short rib hash. We suggest the bone-in skate, wading in a pool of luscious saffron broth, and the slice-with-a-fork-tender filet mignon. The thick grilled octopus is also satisfying. For a real treat, when making a reservation order the salt-roasted porterhouse for two. The wine list moves around the globe and has a few affordable options.
