TRIBECA— A little speculation/update on the Ago situation, per the tipline: "I have word from my sources inside Ago that they are going to stay open till AFTER the Tribeca Film Festival, then they will close for a few weeks for minor renovations. Carmellini is already working in the space and looks for feedback on new dishes from anyone who walks by. So we are looking at a May 4th close, followed by a reopen probably by the beginning of June." [EaterWire]
