The food scene in Haverstraw just got even more interesting. Chef David Martinez and front-of-the-house-man Paulo Feteira, owners of Union Restaurant and Bar Latino, are planning on opening a bistro-style restaurant up the street in the former Soup Stone Cafe space.
Along with Bella Rose Cafe, a promising new Italian place that opened this fall, and Antoine McGuire’s, the fun Irish pub with tasty French-influenced food, the new (and yet unnamed) restaurant is priming Main Street to become a mini restaurant row.
Feteira says the restaurant will be the sort of place where you’ll come to a long bar to meet some friends and relax over small plates and comfort food. The menu isn’t yet set, but he and Martinez are thinking pastas, meat and fish rather than the Latino style you’ll find at Union.
“A little bit of everything,” says Fetiera. “Just done in David’s style of cooking.”
That means the menu is about flavors and ingredients that combine well, says Fetiera, with simple and clean food that surprises your tastebuds. The partners hope to have the new place open by May. The address is 14 Main St., Haverstraw; there is no phone yet.
