The real estate bubble has caused another casualty. David Bouley’s buildings are worth more as condos than as restaurants, so he sold them.
Awesome. More condos in Tribeca.
In a publicist-placed lengthy piece, The NYT reported that Bouley is closing his flagship restaurant, and Brushtroke across the street. He will take 18-months off, then open a new place elsewhere after taking classes at Harvard and NYU in holistic medicine (Huh?).
Since healthy food and tasty food are conflicting, don’t expect a great menu at the new restaurant.
