Dans Le Noir? May Open in Tribeca
The Dans Le Noir? saga continues! After declaring their intentions in August to take over the former Tonic space on Norfolk Street, the owners of the French-based chain of "dining in the dark" restaurants subsequently backed out of the deal and retreated into the wilderness. Now it looks like they've resurfaced in Tribeca: According to the Tribeca Citizen, the company has applied for a liquor license for 54-56 Franklin Street, between Lafayette and Broadway. Should all go according to plan, the restaurant -- which will occupy the former home of the Lafayette Bar & Grill -- will open in March 2011, per the DLN site.
