Forgeois Is Planning a Rooftop Restaurant in Tribeca

Georges Forgeois, the restaurateur behind Cercle Rouge, Jules Bistro, and various other similar French bistros, is looking to open a restaurant in a one story-building in Tribeca. Tribeca Citizen reports that Forgeois presented his proposal for the space, which would be half on the roof, half indoors, at Tuesday's Community Board 1 meeting. The roof would have 22 seats spread across six tables, while the indoor dining area downstairs would have another 30 seats and a long bar.

The committee gave the thumbs up for the rooftop plan, provided that it closes at the respectable hour of 9 p.m. and doesn't play music. The inside, meanwhile, can stay open until midnight. Forgeois hasn't decided on a name or a menu yet, but he says given the space's tiny kitchen, he's thinking about serving something like "French tapas."
