Some weeks ago, we received a tip that Ken Friedman would likely reopen the John Dory in the Ace Hotel as a raw bar, and now he tells The Wall Street Journal’s Metropolis that the “oyster bar, with sort of a sense of humor” could open as soon as mid-July. As Friedman told us earlier, there’ll be sidewalk seats — 40 of them, to be exact. [Metropolis/WSJ]
