Walked by last night and it was closed. Did it ever open under Orfaly?

    They were only going to be open when the store was open and the store has closed to "take a break" until February 2nd according to the front page story in today's Globe.

      When was the last time a retail store decided to '"take a break" and not be open during their regular retail hours? I know, it's a commentary on the current economy. But rather than simply close, it would be wiser to reduce hours and/or staffing.
      Regarding Marc & Restaurant L, I hope that this venture does not spread him any thinner. The chatter on this board recently has talked about Pigalle starting to lose focus, which usually means chefs/owners have too many balls in the air ( can you say Todd )?
      Also, given how much time/energy/money it takes to get a place going, why start up Restaurant L at its current location, only to close next year when Louis moves?
