Well, that was fast: Just a few hours ago, we told you Chinatown Brasserie would close today and move to another space, and now we know what its replacement will be at the current location. Andrew Carmellini, Luke Ostrom, and Chinatown Brasserie partner Josh Pickard will turn the spot into, well, something French. The Times says the partners “have not decided on a name or worked out the details” but they are “not planning a brasserie-style place with red leather and brass rails” and AC will be in charge of the kitchen.
