••• Michael White’s upcoming restaurant, The Butterfly, came before the main CB1 board last night, and not surprisingly, the board was concerned that the Butterfly had been presented to the Tribeca subcommittee as a restaurant, only to have the PR rep subsequently say it would actually be more of a bar. According to my source, when told they would have to re-present the actual concept, the Butterfly team “disavowed the spokesperson’s comments and said they stand by their submission to CB1′s Tribeca committee,” which as you might recall, included a Wisconsin-themed menu.

••• See that Babesta ad in the right-hand column? Or the Woodrow’s one on the left? Or the one for The Elevens in the Restaurant Guide? All advertising is appreciated at Tribeca Citizen, but especially display advertising, because it’s more of an investment on the businesses’ part (than a newsletter ad). So go frequent those companies! When you support advertisers, you’re helping keep this site alive!
