G by Mike Isabella Goes À La Carte for Dinner

The chef expands beyond $40 set menus at night.

G's sandwich shop will continue during the day, while evenings bring set menus or a la carte options.

Chef Mike Isabella is changing up the format for G, which has operated as a sandwich shop by day, and prix-fixe dinner spot at night since opening in 2013. Starting Wednesday, May 6, evenings will bring both a $40 set menu and à la carte options to the 40-seat space. The change follows on the heels of the Yona pop-up, which wraps up on May 2.

The new lineup from chef de cuisine Elliot Drew features a range of antipasti and pastas, as well as a meat, fish, or vegetarian secondi and sides. Portions are similar to those at the adjoining Kapnos, in that they’re designed with sharing in mind. Dishes will change seasonally—spring brings options like snapper crudo with fennel pesto, bucatini carbonara with sweetbreads and fava beans, and Florentine-style grilled cauliflower with black garlic aioli.

The daytime sandwich shop format remains unchanged, as does the set $40 Sunday Gravy Menu. Reservations will continue to be taken for dinner.
