Lina Frey Opening Tomorrow at 201 East Houston
The new French-themed eatery Lina Frey is but a day from opening at 201 East Houston. For the last week or so, the security gates were raised, the veil of brown paper gone from the windows. One worker told us yesterday that the joint will open tomorrow, complete with retractable glass roof.
And Thrillist confirms the details:
From a pair of music/nightlife industry vets who whet their whistles at Boucarou, LF’s named for one of the owner’s Alsatian grandmother, serving up cuisine inspired by summers spent at her B&B; the nouveau-barn-steezed sleeve is lined with metallic chairs & weathered wooden benches, brass lamps, and a sliding glass ceiling that imbues an outdoor vibe.
The former home of Yoshi had undergone a relatively slow and steady transformation these past few months. A full liquor license was attained in early February, and a new storefront marquee followed shortly thereafter. The signage, however, remains bare.
Lina Frey, 201 East Houston, (212) 995-5546
