Barely a day after Café des Artistes shuttered — a victim caught at the deadly nexus of an aging proprietor, union woes, and a business slump — Drew Nieporent spoke coyly of the restaurant. “It’s a great space,” he told Bloomberg News. “I’m always interested in great spaces.” Nieporent is also sentimental about Café des Artistes, as he “wooed his wife there over many a dinner and brunch.” Graydon Carter also expressed admiration for the restaurant: “I sure do love a restaurant with murals!” Graydon already has his hands full, but maybe Nieporent can pick up a new spot.
