Evidently, laying down the smack on his former attorneys has not prevented John Fraser from thinking about his next move.

Real estate sources say Fraser is close to a deal on a space in Greenpoint, where he plans to open a more casual eatery. Our attempts to reach the toque for comment were unsuccessful, but watch this space for more.
