Seen & Heard: A Peek Inside Il Mulino

••• J. reports that on Thursday, “there was finally some sort of construction work going on at the site on the corner of Washington/Desbrosses/Greenwich. I did not get a photo unfortunately but I saw sacks of what looked like concrete and some machinery was in use.” That would indeed be exciting. I checked it out yesterday afternoon and saw the usual nothing.

••• “R & Company, together with renowned Italian carpet producer Amini, presents Woven Forms, opening October 12 in a pop-up location in Tribeca.” It’s at 365 Broadway, northwest corner of Franklin. “After a successful debut this May in Venice [pictured below] during the 57th International Art Exhibition, the carpets will for the first time ever be shown as a group in New York.” There’s an opening event on October 12, and then the exhibit is by appointment only.

••• Il Mulino’s Tribeca location looks like it’s fairly far along. They kept some of the Tablao decor, including the mirrors up front and the wallpaper in back.

••• How does this work? Does the cop see it and keep walking out of some sort of solidarity? Does he/she pop inside 443 Greenwich and ask that the car be moved out of the no-parking zone?

••• Nearby, this car’s sticker made me laugh. I would’ve liked to see whether the driver was really handicapped, as indicated by his placard.

••• The lower windows on 91 Leonard’s Broadway side have glass, although it’s hard to tell in this photo.

  1. Re: Hotel – been stopped for so long and tying up all the sidewalks that used to be around it. I hope this means it is starting again as it will be really good for the neighborhood.
    Hopefully another Greenwich Hotel…
