Signs of Life Around Washington Square Park

Someone is taking over the Washington Square Bar & Grill space: Inside Scoop reports Sens chef Dane Boryta and his wife Liz Ferro will be taking over the space. They are hammering the final nail in the coffin of the Washbag, and are going to be opening a new concept called ~BOTTLE CAP~. The basics: ingredient-driven, casual American cuisine, and open continuously Tue-Sun 11am-10pm. Stand by for timing and more details in coming months. 1707 Powell St. at Union.

And since we’re in the neighborhood, Scoop reported earlier the name for Anna Weinberg and Jenn Puccio’s project in the former Moose’s/Joey & Eddie’s will be ~PARK TAVERN~. Stand by for a summer opening. With valet parking, holla. 1652 Stockton St. at Union.
