Tribeca café Columbine will now be known as Clementine, swapping dismal associations for one of nature’s tasty citrus fruits. A staff member confirms that the restaurant wanted to change its name “because the late unpleasantness.”
The concept and menu items will remain the same, however. Proves that in some cases “what’s in a name” actually matters. Better late than never.
