Michael White Heads to Madison Avenue

And the UES licks their plumped-up lips.

Michael White is red hot. After recently rolling out his Wiscopolitan pizza at Nicoletta and announcing plans for Tribeca's "mid-century style cocktail bar with a supper club feel," The Butterfly (the best name he could come up with ... really?!), the booming chef/restaurateur has assumed the lease at the illustrious Centolire space, at Madison and East 86th, once run by the legendary Pino Luongo. Just please don't call it The Unicorn.
