DTUT replaced by wine bar Cafe Notte

They mystery over the space formerly occupied by DTUT has been solved. And it's opening Monday.

Cafe Notte is set to continue the free wifi hangout, but a bit more upscale. Expect a greater emphasis on the wine and food.

A restaurant in the middle

Today, more information on the building that Georgica, the cantilevered condo building, surrounds. The owner of Baraonda, Per Lei, and Bella Blue is opening a new restaurant named Ciabella.

The restaurateur said he hopes that Ciaobella's d├ęcor will attract young Yorkville residents; a red mosaic bar, dark wood floors, and a red crocodile-patterned ceiling adorn the new space.

UES Cantilever Bldg Has a Name: Georgica?

It is by far one of our least favorite names for a new condo development. According to the banners hung around 305 E 85th st, the cantilevered building The Ascend Group is developing will be called "Georgica".

The website is quite vague at this point

Based on the page's HTML description it seems they are looking to target families.
The new luxury Upper East Side development. This is Georgica. Residential couture. Contoured to the modern family. Spacious, expansive, multidimensional. The new Upper East Side.
