The John Dory’s November 1 reopening was delayed, but we’re told the 120-seat oyster bar should finally start taking walk-ins (no reservations) at noon tomorrow. We’d suggest calling tomorrow to make sure they have all of their ducks in a row, and in the meantime see the menu here and brush up on the place here. Also, the folks at Ai Fiori tell us the latest opening date for Michael White’s restaurant in the Setai is “late November” (of note: Eater hears that White and his partner Chris Cannon are on the outs). And Diner’s Journal now puts the opening of Marcus Samuelsson’s Red Rooster at “late November or early December.”
