Nordstrom To Have Six Food And Beverage Concepts For NYC Store

Nordstrom is teaming up with Seattle-based Chefs Ethan Stowell and Tom Douglas to bring six unique food and beverage offerings to the highly-anticipated opening of its first flagship store in New York City, on October 24th, 2019. Situated near Columbus Circle, the store will provide a robust selection of culinary choices.

“We are incredibly excited to collaborate with culinary greats, Chefs Ethan Stowell and Tom Douglas, with the opening of our NYC flagship store. They are well-regarded for creating innovative menus and dining experiences, and we feel they’ll be a great complement to our already strong restaurant portfolio,” said Jamie Nordstrom, President of Stores at Nordstrom.

Chef Stowell, executive chef, and owner of Ethan Stowell Restaurants will open Wolf, an homage to his award-winning Seattle restaurant, How to Cook a Wolf, which will be his first New York City restaurant. Located on the third floor of the flagship and overlooking West 57th and Broadway, the restaurant will offer Italian-inspired small plates in an ambiance that is both comfortable and refined. In accordance with Chef Stowell’s food philosophy of keeping it simple, Wolf will showcase the bounty of the Pacific Northwest, by creating dishes that let the ingredients shine. Open after-store hours, Wolf is set to become a sought-after dining destination in Midtown Manhattan.

Chef Douglas is also set to debut his first project on the East Coast, with two concepts in partnership with Nordstrom: Jeannie’s, a contemporary pizza, pasta, and salad restaurant, ideal for families as well as a great stop for the shopper in need of a cocktail and a snack. Hani Pacific will feature Pacific Rim-influenced dishes. With a modern and open kitchen, diners will be able to see all the action at Hani Pacific while enjoying lunch, dinner, or an array of happy hour options with full cocktail service. Both restaurants will be located on the store’s lower level.

Taking a cue from its location on Broadway, the aptly named Broadway Bar will launch as an exclusive concept for Nordstrom in New York City. Customers can enjoy inventive cocktails and small plates from the bar’s second-floor vantage point. Whether enjoying a break from shopping or meeting a friend for drinks, Broadway Bar’s setting makes it ideal for a unique cocktail and light meal.

Located on the fifth floor, Bistro Verde will cater to a family-friendly audience and will offer diners a choice of classic fare including soups, salads, a variety of pizzas and pasta, meats and seafood, and tempting desserts. A patio, slated to open in 2020, will provide seasonal al fresco appeal to this all-day spot.

Rounding out the offerings will be Shoe Bar, which as the name suggests, will debut as a cocktail-destination on the shoe floor. Customers will be able to toast a celebratory moment or new purchase with a martini or glass of wine. There will also be an all-day menu which will allow shoppers to stop and refuel.
