Seen & Heard: Aamanns Opening Date

••• As was hinted last week, Aamanns/Copenhagen is opening Nov. 2. It was a year ago yesterday that I was nibbling smørrebrød in the same room as the Crown Prince Couple of Denmark. From the press release: It “will be open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu is aesthetic, healthy, creative, sophisticated, carefully conceptualized and 100 percent authentically Danish. It includes a light breakfast; a varying selection of smørrebrød; daily homemade organic breads, cheeses served the Danish way with butter-fried rye bread; pastries and desserts; chocolates; coffees; teas; beer and wine from Denmark and abroad; and Aamann’s popular handcrafted aquavit.”

••• Luigi Iasilli of Max says that he’s expecting a pizza oven. “I will definitely start making my ‘sour dough’ pizza, the healthiest and most natural pizza, using my wild-natural rise dough I made three years ago, without using commercial yeasts! And with the great North American flour, made from the hard red spring wheat.”

••• At the New York Law School: “On November 17, the fight to exonerate the Memphis Three will be explored in panel discussions with Damien Echols, who spent 17 years on Arkansas’ Death Row, and his defense team. The half-day event also features an advance screening of West of Memphis, a new documentary detailing the struggle to free the three innocent men. Lunch will be served. Admission is free, but RSVP at is required.” It’s 12:30–6:30 p.m.

••• I was using Google Street View to locate one of the photos in the Tribeca in the 1980s post when it dropped me inside Floratech on Beach Street. That seems wrong somehow.
