New signage went up today at 380 Lafayette Street (Great Jones Street), where Chinatown Brasserie recently closed. Last month, Diner’s Journal reported that Andrew Carmellini, Luke Ostrom and Josh Pickard, who own The Dutch and Locanda Verde, are opening a French restaurant in the bi-level space.

It’s a return to form for Mr. Carmellini, who received acclaim cooking French cuisine under Daniel Boulud of DBGB, and the chef’s second project on Lafayette Street. He and his partners are also opening The Library at Joe’s Pub, just a block away.
