The swankification of Hell's Kitchen continues with Réunion Surf Bar, a beach-themed, quasi-Tiki spot from partners Thomas Wilson, Eugene Ashe, and Five Napkin Burger's Robert Guarino. The restaurant takes its name from Réunion Island, a French-owned island off the coast of Madagascar, which also loaned the spot its signature dish: a hollowed-out baguette packed with Chinese meatballs, French fries, caramelized onions and Gruyere, which is appropriately named Le Americain. Besides the giant American, the restaurant serves Réunion-inspired dishes like short rib sliders, banana leaf-steamed mahi mahi, and "Dodo dogs"—slaw-topped beef franks that share their bun with a giant, fatty piece of pork belly. The drink menu, served by bartenders clad in board shorts and skully caps, carries the jet-set surfer shtick along with mai-tais, dark & stormys, and a tequila-spiked "frozen Corona" slushy. When it's time to pay the bill: The restaurant is happy to accept your payment in either dollars or euros.


The kitchen closes at midnight Sun. through Wed. and at 2 a.m. Thu. through Sat.
