Last week the owners of Unwind on Union closed up to revamp their concept. The Opener TV show that featured them in 2010 only aired in Canada, so they never got a local publicity push from it, and it was time to create something "totally different." After a quick week-long turnaround, they introduce Four Corners, named after this proud American landmark. Starting today, they'll serve a menu of "new Southwestern cuisine," and there are some interesting consultants on hand helping out this time.
Foreign Cinema chef de cuisine Kevin Davidson has put together this menu of items that call the cuisine of Texas, Colorado, New Mexico and even the Yucatan as inspiration. Designed with more of an eye toward sharing, there's a daily ceviche, pulled duck flautas, a cowboy steak, etc. The "spicier" drink menu is also worth looking at, especially since Aziza barmen Christopher Longoria and Brian Galli have created it.
Naturally, owners Todd Slosek and Kai Vance have done as much as humanly possible to change the interior in one week. They say it's now got "rustic, darker tones" (artichoke and maroon walls were mentioned), and communal high tops in the center. Four Corners opens the bar at 3 p.m. daily, dinner starts at 5 p.m. and brunch will begin next weekend. Early reports? Do put them here or below.
