Say it ain't so, Iacopo.
A chef from the Falai mini-empire has partnered with Iacopo Falai, and they plan to reopen the revamped café next week.
We knew it was on the market, but now the bakery-café is no more.
A planned trattoria becomes a Yunnan restaurant, while Travertine gives way to a juice bar.
But the toque hopes to revive Falai's concept elsewhere.
"The Lower East Side has changed. I think it might be less fashionable," he told Diner's Journal.
The restaurant is closed owing to "technical difficulties," whatever that means.
So much for that mini-empire we thought Iacopo Falai was planning for Clinton Street.
The restaurateur will expand his Clinton Street dominion.
The shop and bakery next to Caffe Falai debuted today in Nolita.
