David Bouley (who has recently faced trouble with the Health Department, with his landlord, and with his corporate chef) continues down his rocky road. He tells Diners Journal that hes closing Bouley Market because it takes too much of my time and energy for marginal profit. Hell now spend more time in the kitchen at Bouley. He also confirms what you mightve guessed (that BrushStroke, previously slated for early July, is a non-starter), but says he and Yoshiki Tsuji are still planning to open a Japanese restaurant, called Boji, in the former Danube and Secession space. Till then, his flagship restaurant has introduced a $36 lunch with six courses, counting the petits fours.
