In recent weeks, work has jump-started inside 146 Orchard Street.  Doors are open on many days to reveal a halfway-complete interior.  When we walked past yesterday morning, two workers were busy with decor – painting, hanging colorful wallpaper, etc.  Both declined to comment on the venture, and said that a namesake is still unknown.  Nevertheless, a restaurant of some sort is definitely forthcoming.

It is here that Camille Becerra was rumored to be bringing Paloma, her Greenpoint restaurant which burned down almost two years ago.  But that was before some alleged squabbles among the partners of this mystery restaurant.  Indeed, at the end of April, Grub St reported that Becerra wouldn’t entertain the possibility of chef duties here unless and until all disputes were resolved (“Until they resolve their personal issues, I cannot entertain that concept”).  Guess we’ll just wait and see. No word yet on opening date.
