Chef Chris Raucci and Victoria Rothberg, the owners of beloved Sylvan Park restaurant answer., open their new Midtown restaurant Flatiron on Monday, May 3 after more than a year of delays.

Flatiron slides into the space formerly occupied by steakhouse Union Common (1929 Broadway), which closed last January after a six-year run. The reimagined setup sports 40 seats at a central bar surrounded by big-screen TVs. A colorful mural starring recognizable sights in Nashville and Tennessee is currently getting splashed around the facade. The anticipated opening comes after a full year of delays caused by COVID-19.

Starters like whipped goat cheese, Nashville hot fried oysters, and tomato bisque with waffled grilled cheese are joined by salads dressed with crispy tofu and quinoa or steak. A “sandwiches & such” section includes a classic, veggie or tuna burger, oyster po’boy, and roast pork on a toasted hoagie with caramelized onions, smoked provolone, and cherry pepper relish. Mains include grilled salmon, filet with bearnaise butter, spaghetti and meatballs, and fish and chips.
