Last month we told you that Spain’s Jesús Nuñez (known for his “interactive dishes” and exotic preparations, such as shark and deer carpaccio) was looking for a space. The Observer now reports that a 69th Street brownstone between Broadway and Columbus Avenue (formerly home to a kosher restaurant) “will undergo a drastic renovation” and reopen as Graffit. No date set yet.
