Seen & Heard: Benares Not Opening This Month

••• Despite reports to the contrary, Benares, the Indian restaurant coming to 45 Murray, isn’t opening for another month. (I called the original Benares to ask.)

••• By Joy Gryson, the handbag boutique coming to 106 Franklin, was originally soft opening yesterday and officially opening on Sept. 6. Then came a press release that the opening was Sept 6, with no mention of the soft opening. The PR rep at the Krupp Group won’t return calls or emails, so who knows.

••• “I work next to Ground Zero, and from here, the logical explanation appears to be the installation of illuminated red EXIT signs inside the building.” That’s from Laura, on the post about why 1 World Trade is lit red. (I think the original question was about a more intentional effect, but now we know why there’s residual redness.)

••• Opening Sept 20 at R 20th Century: An exhibit called “After” that looks like an op art fan’s dream.
