EaterWire: Bouley Relocates, F.R.O.G. Readies To Open & More!

TRIBECA—Chef David Bouley is planning on moving his flagship restaurant Bouley a block away from it's current space. The news, from TONY:

Looks like chef David Bouley is playing musical chairs. He’s swapping Bouley restaurant out of its current West Broadway corner and into the Mohawk Atelier building across the street—a property he once co-owned with restaurateur Warner LeRoy. After LeRoy’s death, the chef pulled out of the real-estate partnership, but kept the option to rent back the Duane Street space. Future residents of the building, due for occupancy this spring, will have VIP access to reservations at Bouley eateries.
In today's dining section, the Times' Flo Fab has additional color . "He is about to begin construction on an airy space on the ground floor of a building called the Mohawk Atelier...where he will move Bouley, his flagship, turning it into what he described as a serene and luxurious corner of Provence. “It will remind you much more of the original Bouley at 165 Duane Street,” he said."

SOHO—Remember F.R.O.G (French Origin)? The restaurant, from chef Didier Virot (formerly of Aix), was mentioned in a few Fall Preview roundups as slated for a November opening, then disappeared from the radar. Well, from the picture of the facade (above) as taken by a reader, it seems as if the place will be a go quite soon. The location is 71 Spring Street at Crosby. [EaterWire Inbox]

FLATIRON—Charlie Palmer's New American restaurant Kitchen 22 might be shuttering soon. A tipster writes, "Landlord is marketing Kitchen 22's space on 22nd bet. PAS and Bway." Palmer had shuttered the uptown version of the restaurant, Kitchen 82, over a year ago. Guess you'll just have to get your prix-fixe dinners somewhere else from now on. [EaterWire Inbox]
