Seen & Heard: Pier A Timetable

••• The recently closed Megu owes rent, per this notice on the door.

Megu letter••• “Pier A training begins Monday, Nov. 10,” commented Shaun of the Dead. “Hoping to be open a week or so later.”

••• The Kristin Hanson jewelry shop on Reade has closed.

••• From James: “Looking out my window it appears that they are installing the Brookfield Place ice rink again this year outside the Winter Garden.”

••• Gallery 69 has closed: It’s that frame store/gallery on Leonard that did street-art shows. I got the sense that maybe Park51 is doing prayer services there while its Warren Street situation gets ironed out.

Gallery 69••• Church Street Tavern has started serving Sunday brunch.

Church Street Tavern brunch menu••• Morsi, the new restaurant on Warren, has changed its name (at least on OpenTable) to Gran Morsi. Presumably there was already a business with the name….

••• Pen Parentis’s M.M. De Voe points out that the Gap coming to 170 Broadway (at Maiden Lane) has put up signage saying it’ll open this spring. It’s going to be 19,000 square feet.

Gap by MM De Voe••• Anyone know why this banner is flying at 83 Leonard?

  1. Gran Morsi sounds a little less Egyptian Revolution-y and more like an Italian restaurant…
