Who Will Take Over Café des Artistes?

As everyone knows by now, the charming but over-the-hill Café des Artistes has closed.

Both the space and the name are owned by the Hotel des Artistes, the apartment building in which the restaurant resides. I am quite sure that someone will re-open it. The question is, who?

How about Drew Nieporent? He told Bloomberg:

“I wooed my wife there over many a dinner and brunch,” Nieporent said in a phone interview from Chicago’s O’Hare Airport. “I loved the Mitteleuropean sensibility George brought, that flair, that imagination, those pates. He has been a mentor to me and a very good friend…”

“It’s a great space,” said Nieporent, “and I’m always interested in great spaces.”
