In plugging Riverpark, Tom Colicchio tells Crain's that hes retiring the Craft brand: I don't see opening more Crafts in New York City or anywhere else in the U.S. The assumption is that it's a chain, and that dilutes the brand. Elsewhere in Colicchio-land, T-Clicks recently got in a Twitter tiff with Gimme! barista Mike White, who mistakenly implied that he was serving Starbucks at Riverpark: White apologized for the misinformation (Colicchio's restaurants serve La Colombe and Stumptown), Colicchio apologized for calling him a dick, and all is well now.
