It's Wednesday morning, so let's play Rumor of the Day. Andre, the international flanuer and co-owner of Le Baron and Beatrice Inn (sigh) has been spending a lot of time in New York City recently. He made the rounds during Fashion Week with his partner in crime Olivier Zahm and the Purple Magazine crew, but when they checked out to return to Paris and then Milan (for another fashion week), Andre stayed behind and helped out with Le Fooding NYC. Andre has been all over town, hanging at the Boom Boom Room (where he has been helping Andre Balazs get the place going) and even playing ping pong with Paul Sevigny and Simonez at Spin New York. We have heard from a peu d'oiseau that Andre is looking at several restaurant and club opportunities in New York City, including opening a Le Baron. Could this be related to Sevigny's plans to open a Soho space away from any residential areas? Makes sense, since Andre helped pull the Bea together. But another LB tells us that the talk is cheap and it's not gonna happen. But hey, that's why we call it the Rumor of the Day. And that's why we're DBTH.
