Bobby Flay's New Restaurant Will Be Gato, Not Bolo

New, 10 comments

The new restaurant in the works from Bobby Flay and business partner Laurence Kretchmer will not be an exact revival of Flay's three-star Spanish restaurant Bolo after all. That was what it originally looked like it would be when the pair applied for a liquor license last year using Bolo as their working title. But now, Gael Greene reports that the name of the 147-seat spot at 324 Lafayette Street has been changed to Gato, after a cat that wandered by the first time Flay looked at the place.

While Bolo, which closed back in 2008, focused entirely on Spanish food, Gato will have a mix of both Mediterranean and Spanish dishes on the menu. Although they were initially shooting for a 2013 opening, now the restaurateurs think that Gato will open in early 2014.
