Seen & Heard: Gitano Is About to Start Previews

••• Sweaty Betty closed its Soho store.

••• I learned the hard way yesterday that Arcade Bakery is closed Mondays this summer. But I did got try the tofu banh mi at Vietspot as a result, and it was tasty.

••• The fabric store next to 91 Leonard (as 351-357 Broadway has been named) has been closed for a long time now. Seems like Toll Brothers City Living might want to take that banner down….

••• Proprietor James Gardner said on Instagram that Gitano—the outdoor restaurant at Canal and Varick—is two days from starting previews. Here are some photos; it still looks rather like a palm nursery, or maybe I’ve spent too much time in Southern California. (More likely, that’s just how it looks from the perimeter rather than inside.) Gardner’s post, embedded below, is of a man getting sprayed with a hose. I don’t think it’ll be a regular floor show.
