GastroPub to Open in Upper West Side

gastroChef Rob McCue (of Chef Roble and Co. and Hell’s Kitchen Season 8 competitor) will be overseeing the menu at a gastropub to open near West 107th Street at 949 Columbus Avenue. This two-floor eatery will be in the location of where Lura – a Mediterranean restaurant – once was.

The idea behind this is, according to McCue create a “London-style gastropub and bring it to the Upper West Side, where one doesn’t really exist.” The goal is to offer “comfort food [in a] higher end more relaxed setting.” Craft beers sourced from New York State will also be available.

One local was reported to have said that this now, Columbus Avenue is “slowly starting to develop” adding that hopefully “this venture will be a nice enhancement to that area.”
