Elisir Hopes to Open Next Week

Well, we were skeptical of Elisir's plans to open in early November, but if you scroll to the end of their construction footage montage below, it does look like Elisir might be on target for their opening "as soon as next week," per Dining Bisnow.

Enzo Fargione will open the restaurant (11th between Pennsylvania and E) with two tasting menus at dinner, seven courses for $75 and ten courses for $95.  An entree, dessert, and soft drink at lunch will run you only $19.

The entire outfit is extremely high-tech: 5 flat screens will show Fargione at work; your wine list lives on an Android tablet; and waiters are outfitted with hand-held credit card processors.

The restaurant will also be hosting cooking classes for $129, which includes lunch, wine, recipe books and an apron to take home.  You'll be able to try classes like "colorful pastas and their sauces," "fish and shellfish," "veal lamb and beef" and "Italian mouthful tapas."
