Gelman's, which opened in 2006 as Gelman's Gourmet Market, then evolved into more of a deli/restaurant, then closed for remodeling, has re-opened at 2911 West 38th Avenue. It's now officially Gelman's Restaurant & Bar, with renovations to both the space (it's more sophisticated) and the menu (it's more seasonal), and an expansion of the bar (it's bigger!).

Executive chef and co-proprieter Thomas Connolly's new board emphasizes local ingredients, with such entrees as pan-seared sea scallops with roasted root vegetable hash, creamy leeks and apple cider jus; buffalo pot roast with horseradish mashed potatoes, garlic glazed vegetables and natural jus; and seabass bourride with roasted fingerling potatoes, mussels, fennel, leeks and tarragon aioli. Gelman's has also added cheese board / butcher block menus and "Land, Sea & Air," a three-course fixed-price menu with wine pairings that changes every night.
You can get a first look at the new, improved Gelman's tonight, when the restaurant hosts a debate-watching party.
