In the News: Corton Is Going on Hiatus

corton 21213••• “Corton, Drew Nieporent and Paul Liebrandt’s critically acclaimed Tribeca fine dining restaurant, is currently closed for a one-month break. A message on the restaurant’s website announces the break, and Nieporent tells Eater: ‘We’re on summer vacation.’ The restaurateur also notes that they might extend it a few weeks into next month, but nothing has been decided yet.” Uh oh. I hate to be Mr. Bummer, but this is what happened last July, when Centrico—another Nieporent establishment—announced it was closed temporarily, and it never reopened. Rumors about Corton have been swirling for a while, and Liebrandt has one, maybe two, new places in the works…. I’d call the corporate office to ask, but why? Just so I can be yelled at? —Eater

••• “United American Land […] has purchased a multi-family building at 118-120 Duane Street in Tribeca, between Broadway and Church streets, for $11 million […] The five-story, 27,000-square-foot elevator building has nine residential units and retail on the ground floor. It also includes 7,500 square feet of additional air rights for development.” Note: 118-120 is the two buildings in the photo. —The Real Deal

••• Pricing for the Sterling Mason. —Curbed

••• The Tribeca Trib‘s police blotter includes two teens’ theft of a Citi Bike “valued at $1,200.” If you’re going to steal a bike, you can do much better than a Citi Bike.
