Today Flo Fab confirms the months of rumors that Le Cirque patriarch Sirio Maccioni is taking over the space of closing British import Le Caprice. Maccioni will open Sirio, a Tuscan restaurant that will be far less formal than Le Cirque, in late spring. Chef Filippo Gozzoli, who comes from the Park Hyatt in Milan, will oversee the menu, which will also include pizza, and Adam Tihany will do the design.
Le Caprice will not close until the end of March, and the owners still purportedly plan on relocating, so make sure to book up those primo resys before it's too late.
