Florent Goes to Court!

We bumped into Florent Morellet Wednesday night outside the Community Board 4 meeting and he was bubbling about his recent day in court. The Meatpacking District pioneer and devoted High Line supporter has filed suit against his landlord in an effort to extend the lease on the famed Restaurant Florent -- and he was pleased because the judge was familiar with him and his fabulous eatery.

"I know this restaurant--Florent is a great place," remarked Judge Matthew Cooper, according to Chris Shott in this week's Observer. The judge is still deliberating, Florent told us outside the CB4 meeting. If he is forced to close the restaurant, Florent intends to make the final month at 69 Gansevoort Street one big party.

We will be there.
