Hammers and drills were working overtime this weekend at 62 West 9th Street where Waverly Inn chef and author of The Hunger John DeLucie and his partner, Delicatessen owner Mark Amadei, are readying a 140-seat restaurant. The Lion, opening at the end of next month, will be two stories and serve classic American fare from steaks and chops to burgers. The space, which previously housed the restaurant Village, will take on more of an old-world feel, but with updated art, and the team is currently meeting with collectors and dealers in a search for works by Andy Warhol and David La Chapelle.
