Richie Notar’s revamp of the iconic Lenox Lounge space and New Orleans–based baker Dwight Henry’s Buttermilk Drop bakery next door are now scheduled to debut next spring. The space’s new proprietor chalks up the delay to a “landlord and tenant issue.” In the meantime, Notar says he’ll open a rooftop lounge at the relaunched space and the menu served throughout will consist of “good, approachable food, not pretentious.” Former owner Alvin Reed still owns the trademark to the Lenox Lounge name and a good deal of its old furnishings.
