Rene Michelina is the chef for two new Financial District places: Market (aka "Mkt", blech), at 130 Water St, and Central 37, at 21 Broad. Both sound like fairly foo-foo afterwork spots for the suit-wearing set. They're both open as of today, serving food till 10pm and drinks till 2am.
I've long admired Michelina's work, dating back to his South End Galleria and Centro days. I wonder what Domani becomes without him: maybe non-existent? I haven't set foot inside of Saint in years, so I'm not concerned about its fate in his absence.
I'm not thrilled to learn that the folks from Soho in Brighton are also involved. That place is the epitome of cheese, and serves really terrible cocktails.
