Fear not, Claude Lane fans. Gitane is reopening tonight, as promised, following last Friday’s little blaze. Word has it the team is in high spirits, and chefs Bridget Batson and Patrick Kelly are excited to keep serving the new menus that they were just debuting the night the fire broke out. “Luckily no one was hurt and they were able to repair the minimal damage that was done,” says a rep.
