Nieporent goes Mexican in Tribeca.
Just because Drew Nieporent is opening Nobu on 57th Street doesn’t mean that he’s abandoning Tribeca. The restaurateur has teamed up with Paladar chef Aaron Sanchez to open a Mexican place later this month in the space that once housed Layla on West Broadway. Sanchez, a Food Network personality, was chosen as one of People magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People,” ostensibly making the restaurant—to be called Centrico—all the more appetizing.
