Matthew Suchomski Opens Todd’s Mill at 162 Orchard Street

Posted on: November 19th, 2012 at 6:28 am by

No. 7 expat Matthew Suchomski just lifted the veil on his new bar-bistro venture at 162 Orchard StreetTodd’s Mill. Construction onsite has been a constant since late summer, when the former Orchard was gutted and re-imagined as a more open space. Well, work’s done. The crinkly yellowed paper shades were tossed in the trash Friday evening, and the doors officially opened to the public. Its arrival is two months after the initial projections.

As we first reported way back in March, Todd’s Mill is a 75-seat eatery that will serve “new American bistro,” a cuisine choice that many nightlife newcomers in the neighborhood are seemingly embracing. The name itself is apparently a nod to the small town in Illinois that Suchomski’s maternal family founded. Decor inside 162 Orchard is meant to resemble an upscale Victorian living room, with antique tchotchkes, brass chandeliers, and circular banquettes.

And Todd’s Mill is now wet, as the State Liquor Authority just activated the on-premise liquor license on November 6.
