There haven’t been many signs of life at Lesly Bernard’s two long-delayed East Village spots, Permanent Brunch and La Otra, but we recently scored a glimpse inside Permanent Brunch, his project with Meg Grace of the Redhead. There’s still no official opening date, but word is, the storefront will soon be changed and the project is heading into soft-opening mode very soon. Meanwhile, Eater has construction shots of another Fall Preview holdover, Zak Pelaccio’s Fatty ‘Cue, which the Feedbag says is poised for early August. Eater hears possibly late July, and finds out the Asian barbecue joint will consist of three levels and an outdoor patio.
