And Smoking, Presumably, Will Be Actually Verboten This Time
“New Beatrice” prognosticating continues, of course, but for those interested in what the Inn’s former proprietor, Paul Sevigny, is actually working on, the details are coming out: His soon-to-open restaurant (with Lou Ceruzzi and Rose Bar owner Nur Khan) has a name (Kenmare), an address (98 Kenmare Street, the site of the old Civetta), a soft-open date (NYFW, natch), and, as of this morning, a chef: Joey Campanaro (pictured), whose tiny Grove Street restaurant, Little Owl, is packed night after night. (The guy also had a hand in kicking off the mini-burger “sliders” craze with the addictive, pecorino-laced version on the Owl menu.) Sevigny insists that it’ll be, contra Bea, a small neighborhood restaurant—you know, just like the next mom-and-pop joint with waiters’ uniforms by Chloë Sevigny.
