What happened to Saute?

Does anyone know what happened to Saute on Front St. ? I made a "phone reservation" with a machine on Thursday, and when I went on Friday night, the restaurant was gone! I loved that restaurant! Is the chef working somewhere else?

    According to Michael Klein....

    Nikki Kaufman has pulled the plug on Saute, her Queen Village bistro, which opened in spring 2009 at 775 S. Front St. (The restaurant had a shake-up last month when chef Nicholas J. Cassidy left for Barclay Prime.) With new chef Paul Martin, whose resume includes Pod, Buddakan, and a stop in Louisiana, Kaufman is cutting prices and reconceptualizing as a rustic, casual Louisiana themer called Catahoula. She hopes to open in two to three weeks.
