Former Gramercy Tavern dessert chef Claudia Fleming left the city for North Fork Table Inn and now, according to a press release, Stephen Mancini (the former wine director at Union Square Café who more recently helped open Maialino) and former Union Square Café sous-chef Eric “Bubba” Gabrynowicz (recently the executive chef at Tavern in Garrison, New York) are teaming up to open a place in Armonk, in Westchester.

Restaurant North will open with a menu of “refined farm-to-table new American fare” at the end of next month, at 386 Main Street (the former home of La Scala). The establishment’s Facebook page says it’ll be “educated but comfortable.”
