Take a look inside the Limelight Marketplace. During a preview party tomorrow tonight, invited guests will have one last chance to party down in these hallowed halls and puke in the courtyard before it becomes a farmers' market. Then the shops open on Friday at 1 p.m. What wont be opening, however, is the Manhattan location of Grimaldis were told that the oven wont be ready for another few weeks. When it does launch, itll indeed operate 24/7. But dont expect to be able to stumble into the dining room from 7 p.m. till 11 a.m. slices will only be available via a takeout window on Sixth Avenue. And yes, we did just say slices Grimaldis is doing them for the first time here.

Among the vendors that have been announced since New York published the most recent lineup and floor plan are Petrossian caviar and Williamsburg cooking shop Whisk!. As Flo Fab reminds us, two restaurant spaces are still waiting to be leased maybe Michael Alig is interested?
