In the News: Chinese Restaurant Eyeing the Nobu Space

••• The owners of Chinese Tuxedo in Chinatown are said to be very interested in both the former Nobu and Nobu Next Door; while a lease has yet to even be prepared, they have a name for the establishment: Tiger, Tiger. If it works out, that’ll be a liquor-license fight worth watching. —New York Post

••• Also in the New York Post: The Martignetti brothers’ bar coming to the former Haus space at 285 W. Broadway (at Canal) is said to be shooting to open in April. And Tribeca’s Greenwich Street Tavern is opening a second location at 1 Seventh Avenue South (at Carmine). I stopped in the pub the other day, and calling it a “celeb haunt” is beyond absurd.

••• It stinks that the place so many of us got married will be turned into a jail. —New York Times

••• Gateway Plaza in Battery Park City has a meeting coming up, with the focus likely to be on “the push to preserve affordability at Gateway, through a continuation of the rent stabilization program in effect there for decades, which is slated to expire in 2020.” It’s an interesting read in terms of how residents can have some say over their situation by grouping together to influence local politicians (who will be at the meeting to pay their respects). —Broadsheet
