It's almost time for freshly butchered meat, inventive crudo, and local cocktails: Townsman is likely opening this week.
Yesterday, Harvest chef Mary Dumont posted about being excited to try the downtown spot this week during its friends-and-family soft opening, and a Chowhound tipster says that it will take place tonight. Chef/owner Matthew Jennings feels the excitement, too: "It all comes down to this," he tweeted last night.
The hotly anticipated "New England-style brasserie" has been targeting a February opening, and with the month winding down, these internet rumblings come just in time. With friends and family getting in this week, the public should be on high alert for the grand opening of Townsman any day now.
UPDATE: Townsman is slated to open to the public this Thursday, February 26.
