Bar Martignetti has been closed for renovations for several months now, as the brother's Martignetti planned to do two weeks of "significant renovations" and create a more food-focused restaurant. But have those plans been put aside? According to one Little Birdy, the answer is a yes. According to a Little Birdy, "On the community board 2 calendar of meetings and applications it says cafe noir is moving to 406 broome aka closed for "renovations" bar martignetti. lawyer in my neighborhood who is very active on the community board (live near police building) confirmed this application has been sent and is processing. anthony martignetti's restaurateur dream was short lived...but southside is fun."
Indeed, the Board's calendar does have two items for Bar Martignetti and Cafe Noir, a transfer and license alteration application.
Vallat, Inc. d/b/a Café Noir, 199 Lafayette St./ (1stfloor)
Vallat, Inc. d/b/a Café Noir, -(relocation see app. above)
With the behind the scenes manoeuvring, it looks like this one could be a done deal. The meeting is tomorrow night, so stay tuned.
