Summer recess for Moscow 57 is nearing its conclusion. Upon its return to 168 1/2 Delancey Street tonight, it’ll be re-christened Kapowski’s. The storefront received a facelift in anticipation of the rebranding, including the more aesthetically pleasing pinstriped awning and requisite gate mural.

As previously reported, Kapowski’s is a local supergroup of sorts. Barramundi veteran Tony Powe, who recently closed his long-running Clinton Street restaurant, joined forces with Ellen Kaye and the Moscow 57 lineup to create the concept. Hence the amalgamated name (i.e. their two surnames).

Kapowski’s will be a small restaurant that focuses on Russian and Central Asian small plates. Chef is Yekaterinburg-born Nikita Ponomarev. Opening is slated for tonight.

Below is the food menu:

It’s worth noting that Kapowski’s was not heard at Community Board 3 for its apparent change in method of operation.
