And Finally, A Look Inside Aldine
Okay, so it’s still not much. But considering how long we’ve all been waiting for Aldine—George Sabatino‘s much-delayed, often sidetracked follow-up to the award-winning work he did at Stateside–something is better than nothing.
Sabatino posted this snap of the Aldine dining room, with all the tables and chairs in place, to his Instagram feed yesterday. Tables and chairs are a good sign. That means all the major renovation work has been done. All the big equipment is in place. And, in related news, the Foobooz Mobile Party Unit ran in to George’s wife Jennifer on the street last week while we were skulking around the neighborhood looking for been and octopus, and she said that the actual, official, no-bullshit opening of Aldine was “Close,” so, you know… There’s that, too.
