On Jan. 3, we reported that some folks involved with Prune would be taking over Belcourt on Second Avenue at Fourth Street. The new place will be called Calliope.
This afternoon, Diner's Journal provided more details on what's happening with the new restaurant... Among other things, Eric Korsh, the executive chef at the Waverly Inn, the hyped, kinda exclusive West Village place that Graydon Carter owns or something, will be opening the space with his wife, Ginevra Iverson, Prune's one-time sous chef. (Korsh's name was not on the original CB3 documents. The CB3/SLA committee OK'd this transfer earlier this month.)
According to Diner's Journal, Calliope should open in April, with Belcourt bowing out in March.
