Sounds like the old Viceroy space in Chelsea, which closed last June after eighteen years in business, will very soon be home to a new full-service restaurant called Pounds and Ounces. Julian Hitchcock, a broker over at Kamenitzer Real Estate, tells us NYC restaurant veteran Etai Cinader — who’s worked as wine director at Tao, as well as manager at Co. and Dos Caminos — has just inked the deal for the “American Eclectic” restaurant. Pounds and Ounces will serve breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a late-night menu. Also in the works: a “wild brunch,” outdoor seating, and a second P&O;, which will be in West Hollywood. More details as we get ‘em.
