The gossip will flow when you are about to open. Today it's Abbe Diaz's turn (on the recently redesigned Px This) to wade into the Abe and Arthur's pool, discussing the potential profitability of the restaurant, the likelihood of diners accessing Simyone after their meal, and just who put their own cash into the deal. According to the post, "I heard those guys are in deep with their own personal cash. And they might be cash poor. I know someone who was interviewing for a position… they just lowballed him all day long… it’s like The Inn [at Little West 12th] all over again… We all know how that turned out…."
UPDATE: Eater gets the first shot inside the restaurant which officially opens on 9/18 AND the iCrave juice on the design, which features "Tanned leathers, waxen, oak flooring in the main room and dark carpeting on the mezzanine, and clean, white tablecloths accent the room, while custom light fixtures engulf the space in intimate, canopied light." It's a little different than we thought it would look.
