Le French Diner Owner Plans Clinton Street ‘Windmill’
This was inevitable, and further evidence that legit gallery bars rarely succeed.
Relative newcomer Galeria is on its way out. In its place, a new venture from a familiar face.
The two-year-old Galeria is a bar-restaurant on Clinton Street where everything is considered “artwork” with a price, from the furnishings to the plants and shot glasses. Now, its business assets are apparently for sale.
Indeed, the south store at 43 Clinton Street is on the April SLA docket for Community Board 3. Chief principals from Le French Diner on Orchard Street (nee Zucco’s Le French Diner) is actually angling to open a new Franco-themed tapas joint here. It’s called Windmill – headed by Pierre Moulin, Luc-Marie Ancelle, and Mark Souther Teague – and boasts seven tables with “French-inspired shareable plates.”
Below is the proposed menu. Windmill will appear before CB3 on Monday (April 9) for full liquor privileges.
