[Several days after Sandy]
Verso, the Italian bistro on Avenue C at East Eighth Street, hasn't been open since Sandy's floodwaters filled up the restaurant's basement. Looked grim for awhile here, a time that included a back-rent notice taped to the front door in late December.
Workers have been busy of late...

And last night, Dave on 7th noted that the refurbished restaurant was back open...
Per Dave on 7th: There's a "new, more rustic look. I actually like it. The interior is stripped down. Exposed beams and joists. Barn cladding in front."
The owners tell us that they're in soft-opening mode this weekend, with a "full force" reopening at the end of the month.
