A welcome life line has been thrown to the space formerly known as Cafe Des Artistes and the murals aren’t going anywhere.  Eater reports the space will open in 2011.  Yes, the name will change but it will be good to see old friends again.  From the Wall Street Journals coverage:  “An Italian immigrant, Mr. Sorrentino has been in the restaurant business for more than 30 years, managing restaurants across the world. In New York he is known by some as “The Mayor of 54th Street,” as all three of his restaurants have been on 54th Street and in the same vicinity. His New York restaurants have included Bice Restaurant and Sette MoMA Restaurant in the Museum of Modern Art.”

Bravo!
