Fraunces, Rum House Show Off Their New Looks


Today in reopening news, City Room reports that Irish outfit the Porterhouse Group reopened the bar portion of the historic Fraunces Tavern last night (it had been closed since February), and they’ll reopen the restaurant in two weeks. Meanwhile, Off the Presses tours the brighter, airier new Rum House a week before it opens and discovers the green carpeting has been replaced by a tile floor. [City Room/NYT, Off the Press]
