Seen & Heard: Sushi Dojo Appears to Have Changed Its Mind

••• I’ve heard that the East Village’s Sushi Dojo pulled out of its plans to open at 79 Chambers, which is obviously a tremendous disappointment. I haven’t been able to confirm it, though, so there’s still the slightest glimmer of hope. UPDATE: Despite what Jonathan C. (see his comment below) and I heard, Eater got hold of chef David Bouhadana, who said that the Chambers Street outpost is simply “on hold” while they deal with their other openings.

••• From Chabad of Battery Park City: “We will be hosting Mrs. Eva Schloss—Anne Frank’s stepsister and holocaust survivor—next Wednesday November 5, at PS 89. Like her stepsister, Eva went into hiding in Holland, was betrayed, captured and sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp. Listen to a firsthand account of the life of Anne Frank and the discovery and printing of her famed diary. t’s perfect for middle school age and older.” Info here.

••• Opening Nov. 6 at Patrick Parrish: “Brooklyn-based artist Cody Hoyt shifted his studio practice from very complex, Constructivist and Postmodern inspired painting to functional ceramics about two years ago. He is now making large scale vessels which allow him to bring his drawn compositions into three dimensions with invented handbuilding techniques that push the boundaries of traditional slab construction.”

  1. I can confirm that Sushi Dojo has pulled out. Sadly, they are looking for a space in Chelsea/Meatpacking instead.
