The Pinch bar at 237 Sullivan Street is reportedly under new ownership after a five-year run, and with it, an identity change. Last week, a new awning (and new color scheme) was unveiled for the successor, Triona’s. Meanwhile, signage for Pinch still hangs up above. Triona’s, 237 Sullivan Street, (212) 982-5222
