An on-site staffer confirms to Grub Street that Paul Sevigny and Nur Khan’s former “It” spot restaurant, Kenmare, is “temporarily” shut down, but might eventually reopen with the same name. (Zagat Buzz says a restaurant with a totally new concept is in the works, though.) In the meantime, the subterranean lounge will continue thumping with its regular hours (11 p.m. to 4 a.m.) and possibly an additional menu of bar snacks. [Zagat Buzz]
