Seen & Heard: Sweetgreen Delayed Again

Sazon NYE invite••• Sazón is cruising for a bruising: Its liquor license is up for renewal* and it appears to be staying open till 4 a.m. for special occasions. (It’s conceivable it stops selling alcohol at 2 a.m. and simply lets people hang out.) You’ll recall that the restaurant/bar/club has been petitioning Community Board 1 to be able to serve alcohol till 4 a.m. *The renewal is on the CB1 Tribeca Committee’s agenda for this month; whether the 4 a.m. extension request will come up is anyone’s guess.

••• A couple of people had indicated that they thought that Exceed Physical Culture’s new Tribeca location would be at 394 Broadway, because there has been fitness equipment seen there. Yesterday, I spotted a sign in the window saying that Anderson’s Martial Arts and Kettlebell Kickboxing Academy is/are now in the storefront there. (Also, after I posed about Exceed, the PR rep said that it’ll be in the “heart of Tribeca.”)

••• Sweetgreen is now saying its Tribeca location (in the old Il Mattone space) will open in summer. (That’s a bump backward from spring.)

••• Press release: “Tribeca Trust Presents an Afternoon of Architecture & Urbanism—a Screening of the Urban Design Film The Human Scale followed by Commentary from Architecture Critic Michael Sorkin.” It’s Jan. 12 at 4 p.m at the Tribeca Grand.; info is here.

••• The Mobile City phone store at 47 Walker closed (back in November, according to the sign on the door—guess I need to walk down that block more often). It moved to 248 Lafayette.

••• The sidewalk shed at beautiful 361 Broadway does indeed indicate that the Shigeru Ban penthouse is under construction; the Department of Building signage has gone up, with this rendering. (Also, I now think the storefront is being used as a construction office.)
