The New York–based socialite and philanthropist Grace Hightower, who is married to Robert De Niro and this year debuted a retail line of beans called Grace Hightower & Coffees of Rwanda, tells The Wall Street Journal that she plans to augment the direct trade mission of her company by opening a full-service café. “That is part of the plan and I’m pretty certain it will be in TriBeCa within the year,” she says.
