Rumor had it that the people of Prune were taking over the Belcourt Space — and it’s sort of true. Diner’s Journal confirms that a restaurant called Calliope will (almost 100 percent) assume the space, with husband-wife chefs Eric Korsh — who is currently the executive chef at the Waverly Inn and will be leaving in a few months — and Ginevra Iverson, a former cook at Prune. They hope to open in the early spring. [Diner’s Journal/NYT]
