Another interesting detail from the agenda for the Community Board 3 meeting later this month: Alex Stupak, the extremely talented pastry chef from wd~50, is on the docket for a new liquor license application for a yet-to-be-named corp at 101 3rd Avenue, the old Cosmic Cantina space. Curiously, as of this morning, the location had a giant "Restaurant For Rent" sign hanging out front.
Whatever this project is, Stupak has kept mum about it, although back in March of 2009, he did tweet: "just got home from dinner at L'artusi. Time now to work on my business plan a bit more. its almost time to begin a new path." Hopefully, whatever his plans are, they won't involve leaving wd~50 — as some have suggested, his work with Wylie Dufresne may be at a high point right now.
