Committee is a Mediterranean concept from restaurateur George Aboujaoude (Cafeteria, Bijou Nightclub) that also focuses on craft cocktails, as previously reported. Originally slated for a late 2014 opening, no new date has been announced, though it appears Committee eyed mid-May before removing the announcement from Facebook. The restaurant's website says simply that it's coming soon.
When it does open, expect banquettes made of wood reclaimed from Fan Pier docks and a fancy bathroom floor tiled with pennies. The "laid-back, convivial speak-easy" will feature shareable meze plates and creative cocktails. Earlier this month, Committee teased some information about its bar program, including decorative glassware and sparkling Tiki cocktails.
