Back Forty West

I was lucky enough to have dinner with some close friends at Savoy the week before it closed. Savoy was Peter Hoffman's wonderful and influential Soho restaurant.  It was one of the trailblazers in the farm to table movement. The blow of losing Savoy was softened by the fact that I live near his other great restaurant, Back Forty, and that he was planning something new for the Savoy space.

The word is Back Forty West opens next week in the old Savoy space at the corner of Prince and Crosby. And it sounds like breakfast and lunch will be offered as well as dinner. Can't wait.
