Besides the somewhat prententious name + overcrowded nabe; “THE VINATTA PROJECT Remi Laba and Aymeric Clemente, along with partners in the Mulberry Project, a Little Italy bar, will soon turn the former Florent space into this restaurant and bar: 69 Gansevoort Street (Ninth Avenue).” (via: NYT: Off The Menu)
