Carmellini’s Library Opening By Oct. 4


Andrew Carmellini is aiming to open his lounge in the mezzanine of the refurbished Public Theater in time for a star-studded ribbon-cutting on Oct. 4, a spokesperson for the chef has confirmed. Fans of Locanda Verde and The Dutch – and, for that matter, of Joe’s Pub, which Mr. Carmellini’s partner Josh Pickard helped launch – can hope for The Library to open in the first week of October, barring construction delays. Meanwhile the French restaurant that Mr. Carmellini, Mr. Pickard and Luke Ostrom are opening at 380 Lafayette Street by the end of the year is still without a name, said the spokesperson.
