Seen & Heard: Flor de Sol’s Replacement

••• Thanks to the reader who sent in this photo: The Flor de Sol replacement (361 Greenwich) will indeed be called Tabalo, which means a place where flamenco is performed.

••• Nunu Chocolates has left All Good Things, and today is Blue Marble Ice Cream’s last day. I’ll be the guy hauling a cooler out to Brooklyn to bring back the burnt sugar ice cream….

••• In the post about Keith McNally’s plans at 5 Beekman, I asked if anyone knew what was going on across Beekman, at the corner of Nassau. Ahu commented that it’ll be a “political coffee shop,” while another reader texted me that it’ll be “political bar—a membership type place like SoHo House but the point is to go and talk politics.” Fun! Ish! (Name suggestion: Carlos Danger’s, because that will never get old.) If you know anything, leak it: or 917-209-6473.

••• Two new renderings of what Brookfield Place will look like when the renovations are done next year—the first is of Vesey, the second is of West Street.
