First Word: Morimoto Goes Late-Night in Tribeca

Krieger (Morimoto)

The cadre of Eater interns couldn't make it down to last night's Tribeca Committee meeting to hear the handful of downtown restaurateurs plead for liquor license approval. But a tipster did, and he has some big news to relay:

Morimoto has taken the former Dennis Foy on Church St. to do a mid-priced funky place catering to the late-night crowd. Should be a great hangout for foodies and chefs at 2-4 AM...He talked about how he missed Tribeca since he used to be at Nobu and really likes the 'hood. He's looking forward to doing something more low-key (more of a neighborhood place) than in the Meatpacking.

Community Board 1 had no objections, meaning the Iron Chef should fly through the process. Located at 313 Church, the former Dennis Foy/future Morimoto spot is right next to Macao Trading Co, meaning there is a potential new go-to Tribeca food block in the works.
