Does no one care that Florent is closing?
Did I just miss it, or has no one yet posted the news that Florent is closing? I would have expected to have read it here first, but I first learned with I read Frank Bruni's wonderful article about the place in this morning's NYTimes:
It's worth reading, even if you're not a Bruni fan.
We just moved to NYC less than a year ago, but we went to Florent because we've been trying to visit different neighborhoods' restaurants. I read in Time Out in February that it was closing, so I went to see how it was.
We had an absolutely delightful time, and I wish I'd been many more times.
YES, I CARE! I went here all the time years ago when I passed by that area regularly. Had lots of great dinners there, and it was more than a diner to us.
I had heard about their plan to close (probably on this site) a few weeks ago and probably repressed it. Very upsetting indeed!
I care, a lot
it's very sad
was there the other night for a reliable burger. sat next to two local elderly ladies who said they used to come in regularly for a "working women's" lunch. the great thing about Florent was that the definition of working women was never a fixed thing.
going to be sorely missed.
