Mathieu Palombino tells Eater he will close his two-year-old American-diner-and-French-brasserie hybrid down on February 23 in advance of reopening Bowery Diner as a "very different restaurant." In the meantime, a pared-down menu of things like French-onion soup, green salad, country pâté, and steak frites will be served under the nom de pop-up Chez Jef. Expect the temporary restaurant to open the first week in March, when it will operate on Sundays through Thursdays, 11 a.m. to midnight, and until 1 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Palombino, whose Motorino pizzerias in the East Village and Brooklyn are thriving, tells Eater that the diner's permanent replacement should be open sometime this spring. [Eater, Related]
