Barely a day after Caf des Artistes shuttered a victim caught at the deadly nexus of an aging proprietor, union woes, and a business slump Drew Nieporent spoke coyly of the restaurant. Its a great space, he told Bloomberg News. Im always interested in great spaces. Nieporent is also sentimental about Caf des Artistes, as he wooed his wife there over many a dinner and brunch. Graydon Carter also expressed admiration for the restaurant: I sure do love a restaurant with murals! Graydon already has his hands full, but maybe Nieporent can pick up a new spot.
