Anyone read the Sunday News (in the Brooklyn section) on Jacques Torres' new place in DUMBO? I have been a big fan of Mr. Torres for some years, and I'm thrilled to find he's opening a chocolate factory and retail shop in Brooklyn.
Also, the article mentioned that he was tipped off to the neighborhood by his friend Claude Solliard, who is the chef at Kino Restaurant at 1 Main. I'm curious to know if anyone has been there and what your impressions are. My wife and I have been to several incarnations of restaurants that have occupied that space over the years, and the most notable thing about all of them was the fantastic view of the NYC skyline. I don't know anyone who's been to Kino, so I'd like to see what others think.
