Bottle Cap, the restaurant and bar that had a two-and-a-half-year run in the former Washington Square Bar & Grill space, is on its way out. According to Inside Scoop, owner Liz Ferro and chef Dayne Boryta were finally doing well after a rough first few months and weren't interested in leaving the space, but when the right offer came along—namely, from the Sons & Daughters duo of Matt McNamara and Teague Moriarty—they decided to sell up. (For her part, Ferro says the duo is taking a break but may return in another space.)
For his part, McNamara is tight-lipped on the future of Bottle Cap, saying only that he's going to "keep quiet until we're a little closer." The renovations, however, are scheduled to be pretty fast, knocking down the interior wall that divides the restaurant's two rooms and adding a coat of paint, which suggests that the resulting project will likely be more in tune with casual offshoot Sweet Woodruff than the fine-dining experience at Sons & Daughters. Bottle Cap will serve its final meal on December 22nd, with the bar remaining open and serving bites until the weekend after Christmas; McNamara and Moriarty will take possession in the new year, and hope to open by March.
