In light of a couple un-fun closings, it’s nice to hear about an exciting, if not all that surprising, opening. Peter Hoffman has announced that his Soho space, formerly Savoy, will resurface as another Back Forty, called Back Forty West, with Shanna Pacifico in the kitchen. Zagat says the new menu won’t be identical to the other Back Forty, but it will be close. The opening is a few weeks away. [Zagat]
