The Stone Rose Lounge will no longer be run by the Gerber Group come July 1.The bar, which has had a twelve year run under the same management, will pass into the hands of Related Companies. No word yet on whether Stone Rose's design, referred to as "the epitome of masculine elegance" on the Gerber Group's site, will be affected by this changeover. Ditto Michael Lomonaco's steakhouse-themed food menu.
Meanwhile, the Gerber Group, which also operates Whiskey Park, Kingside, and The Roof at Viceroy, will be shifting gears to a downtown bar that is set to open in the fall. More on that to follow.
