Cheese Cave Opens Underneath Jacques


We hear that Gibraltar, the tiny lounge that's tucked beneath the Nolita bistro Jacques, closed this summer, and owner Jacques Ouari will reopen it in late November. Last time we were there (a long time ago), it was 5 a.m. and the bartender told us she was on Special K. True story. Despite the spaces unmarked entrance and sexy exposed brick walls, Ouari is not, shockingly enough, going the ber-exclusive club route (that didnt exactly work for FR.OG nearby). Instead, hell open a small fondue spot. The small bar stays. Well wait till the menu (and the places name) is final to tell you what, exactly, that means.
