Beloved Meatpacking District staple Florent closes on Sunday night, 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 has already shown us the famed 24-hour restaurant in the morning and the afternoon, and today brings us the evening. Check in next week for the final late night goodbye in the wee hours of June 30.
