Morningside Kitchen last week officially reopened as Nowak’s.
A new sign adorning the Nowak’s name went up at the Morningside-Lenox Park space, May 2.
Blaiss Nowak, the son of the owner of Hal’s, in January, acquired Morningside Kitchen from Tom Murphy with plans to open a new concept there.
But the new restaurant isn’t named after Blaiss directly.
“Nowak’s” was a menswear company in New Orleans owned by the restauranteur’s grandparents in the 1960s to the 1980s, according to a post on the restaurant’s Facebook page earlier this year.
Even the logo is the same.
The new restaurant touts itself as a “casual neighborhood bar and restaurant” serving steaks and seafood.
Take a look at the menu:
