Remember when we spotted construction going on for Brooklyn's newest hip hotel, The Wythe back in November? Well, it looks like things have really picked up since then, as the 73-room hotel is now taking reservations for May 1, and also has a slick new website showing off the rooms, upcoming outdoor terrace, and restaurant, Reynards (hence the fox motif).

No follow-up mention on the alleged 60-seat movie theater, but we can be patient. With all the drama going on at Hotel Williamsburg, this might be the main attraction for Brooklyn for the rest of the season.

The hotel's website explains that the new restaurant, Reynards, will offer "whole animal, wood-fired cooking" and that the food will "center around produce of our farmers throughout the seasons." Which sounds suspiciously similar to Hotel Williamsburg's short-lived Pillar & Plough experiment.

Two differences here, though, at least dining-wise: there will be an underground private dining space and an Ace Hotel-esque outpost of local hipster coffee hot spot Blue Bottle Coffee for guests to hang out and mingle with the Williamsburg-ers.

Though reservations are open for May 1, the booking tool only re-directed us to an email address—so, as of now, rates are unconfirmed.

Stay tuned for more!
