We told you it was in the pipeline just over a year ago, and it looks like Kajitsu — which serves an ornate, top-chef-approved vegetarian kaiseki menu — is finally ready to make the move uptown. The Times reports the restaurant will close on February 25 in the East Village and reopen on March 12 at 125 East 39th Street. In addition to having a new chef, Kajitsu 2.0 will serve, for the first time, a menu featuring seafood on its first floor. The show-stopping vegan menu will be served upstairs. [NYT, Earlier]
