Le Cirqueus: Meet You at the Magic Bar

The Observer's Michael Calderone fans the flames surrounding Le Cirque's new incarnation. Five key takeaways from his Transom piece:

1) Sirio: "You have to be crazy. But it’s worth it!"
2) There are 2,000 guests expected for tomorrow night's grand opening private party. (Whispers an Eater source: "Even if you're on the list, get there early.")
3) "A massive 'big top' light shade covers the high ceiling, and miniature Alexander Calder–like, bent-wire sculptures adorn the walls." Somewhere, Kalina twitches.
4) Interior designer Adam Tihany: "There is a 27-foot wine tower that is part of the complex. We call it the iPod wine tower. It creates a very powerful focal point... The bar itself is a magic bar. It has a dual personality. At night, it reveals colorful bottles that you cannot see during the day." Trippy! (Bar rendering above via The Real Estate.)
5) Tihany: "It’s a modern restaurant.” And off we go.
