Josephina and Sushi a Go Go turning into what?

Did a search and didn't see anything about Josephina's closing (which I'd heard about already). Was at the Met tonight and noticed there is similar brown paper up at its neighboring restaurant, Sushi a Go Go. Does anyone know what is planned for going into those spots? More of the Boulud empire?

    The Smith, opening in fall 2012 supposedly.

      It's going to be a "The Smith". It's part of a chain. There's one in my neighborhood: http://www.menupages.com/restaurants/...
      I regret the event since I did eat at the one near me and find that they have (what is for me) a very heavy hand with the pepper and hot sauce. And it is very noisy. This may work for the young crowd around Lincoln Center, but a whole lot of the LC audience will likely pass them by after one try.

        Thanks! I will miss Josephina. This place sounds louder and more expensive (not that Josephina was inexpensive).
