As Eater announced yesterday Chef John Mooney (currently of NYC's Bell, Book, & Candle; previously of Red Sage and Raku) plans to open a new restaurant at Union Market(1309 5th Street) this spring. From the press release:
At Union Market, Mooney will open a restaurant with a contemporary American menu. His philosophy is to keep things closest to their natural form, which will result in a seasonal menu based on which ingredients are available at the specific time. Most of the food items used in the menu will be sourced from Union Market vendors and his Union Market rooftop garden, where he plans to grow vegetables, fruits and herbs.
