In the past few years, 424 E. Ninth Street between Avenue A and First Avenue has proven to be tough sell for restaurants, where we've seen Olivia, Sintir and Zi' Pep close in fairly quick succession ...

The New Orleans-themed Exchange Alley will give it a go starting tonight ... chef Paul Gerard, a Brooklyn native who spent his salad days in New Orleans, has spent time at Sweetwater in Williamsburg ... and more recently at Soho House and the Soho Grand Hotel... His partner is Billy Gilroy, founder of Employees Only, the "it-speakeasy," according to one account of the place... You can read more about Exchange Alley at Grub Street ... Gothamist ... and Vogue ... their menu is here.
