Though we’d gotten the impression that lit-chef Gabrielle Hamilton was happy with her one little-restaurant-that-could, Prune, EV Grieve has it that folks from Prune are taking over the corner space that currently houses Belcourt. Not long ago, Belcourt lost its chef, Matthew Hamilton, and now the French spot appears set to become Calliope, serving New American food. EV Grieve notes that Gabrielle Hamilton’s name is not on the CB3 paperwork, though the name of a former sous-chef, Ginevra Iverson, is, along with a clearly stated “Prune Restaurant.” Truly exciting news. Could this spell the beginnings of Blood, Bones & Butter, the sequel? [EV Grieve]
Here’s hoping the space remains just as charming. Photo: Gavin Thomas.
