Seen & Heard: Del Frisco’s Grille Opens This Week

••• Del Frisco’s Grille at Brookfield Place is offering a discount today while it trains its staff: 50% off food (at lunch and dinner), with proceeds going to charity, but parties larger than four have to be broken up into smaller groups. The restaurant’s grand opening is tomorrow at 5 p.m., and as of Thursday it’ll be open for lunch and dinner.

••• I was going through old photos when I came across this slide from the presentation the city’s Department of Design and Construction made to Community Board 1 in February of 2015. “The General Contractor may work in only one block segment and one side of the street at a time (subject to change to expedite the project where necessary).” Work is currently underway on at least four blocks, from Hudson to Lafayette—and it sure doesn’t seem to be moving more quickly as a result.

••• Tribeca Art Night is tomorrow, with galleries staying open and hosting special events. Several galleries have timed show openings to it: Michele Telari at One Art Space (below), Tetsugo Hyakutake, Tomoyuki Ueno, and Yuken Teruya at hpgrp Gallery, “Summer Selections” at Art Projects International; Ugo Rondinone’s “I ♥ John Giorno” at 205 Hudson Gallery; and Barnaby Rule at Salomon Arts.

••• On the evening of July 13, the Municipal Art Society is offering a “Tribeca at Dusk” tour led by architectural historian Matt Postal. Tickets.

••• The Battery Park City branch of the New York Public Library has reopened (after closing in March for renovations).

••• This Friday and Saturday: Stillfried Wien is having a floor sale, with discounts of up to 80%.

  1. Del Frisco’s (aka the “Goldman cafeteria”) is a fabulous addition to the neighborhood. I love that place and will be a regular. Very excited. Welcome to Tribeca!
