Seen & Heard: East Village Salon Opening an Outpost in the Roxy

••• A press release for the Roxy, as the Tribeca Grand is now known, says the cinema will be “screening creatively curated movies that recall the quirky, clever programming of iconic New York houses like the Thalia and the Bleecker Street.” Also, Blackstones, “the innovative, unconventional, personalized East Village salon, whose clients include Alexander Wang, Helena Christensen, and Parker Posey, will open its first outpost inside The Roxy offering blowouts and barber shop services.” Cutting Parker Posey’s hair must be an adventure.

••• Confirming what we already knew, CityMD put up signage at 87 Chambers.

City MD on Chambers••• There’s a “for rent” banner hanging above Downtown Liquor Store (at Hudson and Leonard), but it’s actually for the Douglas Elliman offices, which are moving to 140 Franklin (at Varick). The guy at the liquor store said they have “at least two more years.”

••• “The Answer” is shooting in the Church/Franklin area tomorrow (Thursday). I’ll see if @OLV knows what that is.

••• How come no one told me that Pi Bakerie has an ice cream cart? According to his Twitter page, Gabriele Riva is an “Artist/Martial Artist/Chocolatier/Cacao Barry Ambassador.” And the former executive pastry chef at Nobu.

Pi Bakerie••• The West Walkway at the World Trade Center Transportation Hub has opened. I’m not 100% sure where it is, but this video is oddly transfixing, even if it could use a little Parker Posey.

  1. I have to highly recommend the ice cream at Pi. One afternoon after chatting with one of the folks behind the counter they offered us a taste. I pointed to a flavor (yet unmarked) with almonds? raisins? chips? in it. We all tried. I realized it was — olives! White chocolate (which I tend not to like) and olive ice cream. Delicious! Who knew? Also tried the olive oil ice cream. Great too. I know some will say too precious or yechh but you gotta try it!
