New, 9 comments

UNION SQUARE— Andrew Silverman's newest project Union Prime, which you'll recall is in the old Cafe Society/Steak Frites space near Union Square, now has a chef. Brady Duhame, an alum of Park Avenue Cafe, Picholine, and Bouley, will be taking the reins, and the place is now envisioned as a "steak and sushi" spot with "hand crafted cocktails." Friends ad family should start in the next week or so. [EaterWire; previously]

CIPRIANI DRAMA— The top aide to Governor Paterson who was accused of pressuring the SLA into approving the Cipriani's liquor license has just resigned. He claims it is unrelated to the attorney general's investigation into the accusation. [NYP]
