REYNA ON KING
KING STREET EAST
Owner Nicki Laborie and chef Ariel Coplan brought along the same light, colorful approach to drinks and pan-Euro-Middle-Eastern eats that they road-tested at the original Yorkville location (and at a spinoff inside Assembly Chef's Hall), but added a bakery and cafe counter, as well as a new food menu divided into mains at lunch and bar snacks at night. The original plan was to keep the King location a cafe in order to complement the daytime cooking schedule at the commissary. Now, in addition to an espresso machine, the bar is home to a selection of grab-and-go sandwiches, salads, quiche slices, and house made baked goods.
