Beloved Meatpacking District staple Florent closes at the end of this month, and while media outlets scramble to eulogize the place, fans and friends make weekly, even daily, pilgrimages to say their goodbyes. To learn more about Florent the restaurant, Florent the man, and the famous friends to both, see the lengthy profiles in the New York Times, New York Magazine, and Gourmet. If you want to see the spirit of the place captured in images, check in for our weekly installment by photographer Daniel Krieger, who will show us the famed 24-hour restaurant in the morning, the afternoon, the evening, and the late hours. We start today with Florent at 9 a.m. and will end with a final late night goodbye in the wee hours of June 30.
