DuMont Barkeep’s McCarren Project to Be Celeb-Funded

A while back, we brought news that Jud Longell, of DuMont, was teaming up with the designers of Tailor and Smith and Mills to create a bistro that might have either a nautical design or an English-butcher-shop aesthetic. Now BlackBook brings us an early interior shot along with news that a well-known celebrity is a silent partner. Hmmm who could it be? Either way, it's good to know, with the Rusty Knot poised to open in Manhattan, that Brooklyn will have a celeb-studded faux boat of its own.
