On the weekend my friend Caren and I went to Florent one last time. I didn’t have a long history with the dinner like some that may have been going there for years, or remember the times they would go there after partying till 4 in the morning or even had a business account there. But it was the first place Caren took me to eat while visiting nyc back in the day. She thought I would appreciate the designed aesthetic of the place. And of course I did which spoke to the unpretentious humour that was visible where ever you looked. I thought the above sign really spoke to that attitude. It sounds like the dinner isn’t exactly going to close after all which is good b/c people will still be working etc, but it will be fascinating to see where the past design aesthetic evolves into.
