Seen & Heard: Parigot Restaurant Has Closed

••• Signage on the door for Ichimura (69 Leonard), where acclaimed sushi chef Eiji Ichimura, formerly of Brushstroke, is opening his own place. In November, there was word that it could open around now.

••• Parigot, at Grand and Lafayette since 2006, served its last meal on Wednesday night.••• I was excited about the concept for the new building at 83 Walker—a “cast-iron inversion,” with a façade made to look as if a cast-iron building had been pressed into it—but the execution leaves a lot to be desired. It’s cheap-looking contemporary Chinatown architecture that’s trying to pass itself off as Tribeca.

••• This sign on a sidewalk shed on the east side of Cortlandt Alley caught my eye….

Because good luck with that.

••• Watch out for the codger in Teardrop Park talking about his bucket list.
