Though the future of Chumley's still hangs in the balance, let's turn our eye for a moment to some other news fresh off the 'wire.
TRIBECA—If you were wondering what, exactly, was opening up in the space that formerly housed Italian restaurant Dominic on Greenwich St, wonder no more. A tipster writes,"The shuttered Dominic at 349 Greenwich St. is to become a Patsy’s Pizza. CB#1 Tribeca Committee last night approved a liquor license for them." [EaterWire Inbox]
UNION SQUARE/GRAMERCY—The sign at Irving Plaza has come down and now, officially, the venue shall be known as The Fillmore New York at Irving Plaza. Adjust accordingly. [Idolator]
SMITH STREET—Urban beer garden Gowanus Yacht Club might be opening this weekend, weather permitting. Since temps around 10 degrees above freezing are predicted for this Saturday and Sunday, we think you might have to wait a few more days for those curbside beers and burgers. [Eat For Victory]
