A couple of iconic locales are on the blogs today: Brownstoner notices that just seven months after its much-hyped opening, Arbys has left the landmarked Fulton Street building that famously belonged to Gage & Tollner. Eater hears that Coffee Shops project in the former Empire Diner space will open in mid-September and will serve American food, with a more upscale focus and price point to match.
