3) Chelsea: A new restaurant, Prandial, is slated to open in the space where Sean Combs' soul-food restaurant, Justin’s, formerly resided. The 31 West 21st Street location has been vacant since 2007, but a deal was struck with the owner, Mark Stern, to turn it into a 135-seat luxury restaurant. This two story restaurant will feature an old world style bar and lounge and dining room on the first floor, and a private dining room on the second floor. According to Grub Street, they are hoping to open in January. [PRE-PLYWOOD]
