After winning approval from both Community Board 3 and an apprehensive neighborhood, Zoe Feigenbaum opened her eponymous restaurant Zoe last night at 245 Eldridge Street.  Many residents in the immediate vicinity are happy at the prospect of having a calm restaurant on the block, instead of yet another rowdy nightclub.

Arriving right around the time the doors opened, we scoped a good look at the menu posted in the window, featuring creative bistro dishes.

Danish modern and salvaged wood furnishings were visible through the nearly floor-to-ceiling windows, which, by the way, are a nice change of pace from predecessor Satsko.  Their space had presented a more buttoned-up facade.

Though it was early, a few folks were spied eating at the bar (which is encouraged). Another visit later on found a full house of customers.

Neighbors and friends were stopping by throughout the evening, to wish Zoe well on opening night. We’ll bet they were looking forward to trying out such dishes as tongue tacos, octopus and oysters.

Feigenbaum mentioned that she will also be open for brunch, starting this holiday weekend.
