Bar Q briefly closed after a fire; though originally blamed on a cigarette butt cast aside from points unknown, the cause has still not officially been determined. Rest assured, things are now being smoked in a controlled fashion only.
The space that once housed Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s 66 has been silent since he closed the eatery. But construction has just begun. The Church Street space will become a restaurant centered on the chef’s take on Japanese cuisine, focusing on soba noodles.
