Insiders have seen this one coming for a few months now, but now the news is officially official! Scott Conant is in at the Cooper Square Hotel. And today, Table 8, the failed restaurant from LA celeb chef Govind Armstrong, will close for renovations. No word yet on what the restaurant will be called or how the menu will compare to Conant's MePa hit Scarpetta, but expect more info to leak out soon. According to his PR, the new restaurant will open "in the coming weeks."
And the Bowery Corridor just got that much more vital as a food destination. It will be a veritable juggernaut when Pulino's finally opens five blocks away early this year.
