Why Morandi Was So Delayed

New York teased us on why Morandi would be Keith McNally's last restaurant. But his answer left us feeling a bit teased. Why was it so draining for the "Brit who invented the New York breed of French brasserie?" Well, a little birdy tells us:

Real reason for Morandi opening delays? Apparently, the kitchen is located in the former apartment building super’s apartment. A resolution to relocate the super took longer than expected and the restaurant was virtually finished before they even secured a deal for and started on the kitchen. No wonder McNally says this is his last restaurant.
Oh the horror! At list our Little Brit persevered a now the city is better off for it. Lord knows we were running out of places to get Pasta and Wine.
