Daniel Boulud’s search for a downtown space has come to an end, we hear, as the chef’s latest effort is set to land on Houston Street near the Bowery, directly opposite from Whole Foods. Daniel spokeswoman Georgette Farkas cautions us that the lease hasn’t been signed yet, but the man himself tells us that they’ve settled on the location. “We were going to do it near CBGB’s, but it didn’t work out,” he says by way of explaining the holdup. The as-yet unnamed spot will be more casual than its uptown brethren, but it will be a full-fledged restaurant, he tells us — not a wine bar or sandwich shop. Whatever its format, we expect it to be a big hit for Boulud. All the millionaires that have taken over the East Village are going to need someplace to spend their money.
