The Stand to Open for Funnies and Foodies


A comedy club with an atypically decent restaurant inside called the Stand is in the works around Gramercy Park. Owners Patrick Milligan, Cris Italia, Paul Italia, and David Kimowitz, who own Cringe Humor and CH Entertainment, have hired Seth Levine as the chef de cuisine. Levine is currently working on an "upscale comfort food" menu. Expect a late April opening date. Hope no one chokes!
