Just a touch behind schedule, Stock in Trade is making its debut in the former La Barca space on Tuesday. La Barca lived there for 50 years, and as partner Cassidy Fegan tells Grub Street, "We've completely gutted the space and rebuilt it from the ground up." For the new, modern tavern aesthetic, they've added an indoor bocce ball court, some taxidermy, and brightened up the space, and the 35-person bar remains. The executive chef is Jake Kwan-Rosenbush, who's worked at Gary Danko, Naked Lunch, and 15 Romolo, and the consulting chef, as reported before, is Max DiMare, formerly of Wood Tavern.
See the full menu here, without prices but note that dishes top out at $23, with most in the $5 to $11 range. And check out the restaurant starting on Tuesday, February 12, when the first reservations are being accepted. There's also a grand opening cocktail party starting at 9 p.m. on Monday, to which the public is invited.
