Todd English is out of the game concerning his 98 Kenmare project; instead, the lease was taken over by the owners of Sfoglia. English and the leaseholder of the space couldn't come to an agreement on the cuisine of the putative restaurant (or much of anything), hence the change of backers. No word yet on an opening date.
Sheridan Square will expand to take over the space last occupied by Tasca, next door. The additional 40-seat room is currently scheduled to be ready by the middle of July.
Legendary Italian restaurant San Domenico has served its last meal. At least in its cushy digs on Central Park South. Tony May and company will be reopening a new San Domenico---to be called SD26---on Madison Square Park next year.
Turns out Tom Valenti took a pass on the Aix space: Philip Kirsch and Jeremy Wladis will take over the space, with the interior designed by Lincoln Clark. No word on when they're set to open.
Ta ta market, hello tables! The popular West Village eatery yanked their retail operation at the front of the restaurant in favor of 20 new seats. Pat LaFrieda meat patties, which the restaurant uses in its hamburgers, remain available for purchase. Market Table, 54 Carmine St., New York, NY 10014, 212-255-2100.
A producer from Top Chef let fly that the current plan is to film the next season of the show in New York. There's no official word yet, but viewers would likely be excited to see head judge Tom Colicchio in his own backyard.
Momofuku Ko's fixed-price menu has risen from $85 to $100. David Chang says the menu's price will fluctuate based on ingredients and slight changes in the food line-up. Momofuku Ko, 163 First Ave., New York, NY 10003, No phone.

It's been no secret that Maremma owner Cesare Casella has had his West Village eatery on the market. Well, he might have a taker. It's being reported that Joe Campanale and company, from nearby Dell' Anima, are going to be taking over the West Tenth Street space, converting it into a rustic-looking Italian eatery. Maremma, 228 W. Tenth St., New York, NY 10014, 212-645-0200.

La Fonda del Sol is coming back to the ponderosa. The historic restaurant, which was located in the Time Life building during the 1960s and ‘70s, will now replace what was Tropica in the Met Life building.
Drew Nieporent has finally taken us all out of culinary purgatory by admitting that the once-loved and now-closed Montrachet is never going to re-open. When it shut down two years ago, there was never an obit, the powers that be claiming the restaurant would be back. It won't be. But have no fear: Nieporent is opening a new restaurant in the space, tentatively called Corton. The chef will be the cutting-edge Paul Liebrandt, last seen at Gilt.
The space last held by Aix won't remain dormant for long---Tom Valenti (Ouest) was rumored to be poking around the space recently, according to online reports.
Geoffrey Zakarian's The Lambs Club will open next year in the Chatwal, a hotel currently under construction east of Times Square.
Old school Italian eatery, Marco Polo, is partying like it's 1983. To celebrate the Brooklyn restaurant's 25th anniversary, it's offering a month-long prix-fixe menu: three courses for $19.83 at lunch and $25 at dinner. Available from through June 30. Marco Polo, 345 Court St., Brooklyn, NY 11231, 718-852-5015.
