Bill Telepan is the latest in a string of chefs to branch out into American tapas at Tribeca’s Telepan Local, a quiet neighborhood spot with walnut paneling, low lighting, and a DIY feel. Stop by the bar before dinner to watch bartenders mix drinks like the Cuore di Grande Mela (Heart of the Big Apple), a bourbon, aperol, Pear William cider syrup, and aromatic bitters mixture that’s properly heavy on the booze. At Local, the chef puts a decidedly funky spin on tried-and-true dishes. Grilled cheese arrives as pan con tomate, the freshly sliced tomato nicely cutting through the gooey dairy bomb of raclette-style cheese from Vermont. Tender housemade foie gras torchon comes sandwiched between macaron-like wafers (called “jammers”) with a dab of flavor-packed apricot jam, while the restaurant’s arancini are perfectly crisp, stuffed with salt-cured bone marrow and drizzled with a notable Parmigiano aïoli. At other times, the kitchen delivers uninspired takes on freezer-food-like pigs-in-a-blanket, which are good enough—homemade hot dogs wrapped in fresh puff pastry—but not worthy of a $7 price tag. Similarly, Telepan’s sourdough pizzettes are crunchy but bland: the bacon, jalapeño, red onion, and mozzarella variation tasted only of dough and mild cheese. Dessert returns the meal to a blissful place. Spring for a piece of the thickly sliced brown-sugar-pecan layer cake. The frosted slab is sweet without overdoing it, and loaded with savory chopped pecans.
