Behind those lacy curtains is Gemma, the Bowery Hotel's soon to open Italian restaurant designed by Taavo Somer. The last time we passed by, the place was still pretty much under wraps. No more. A little birdy walked by and snapped this pic, saying "the restaurant is getting close to being ready. There are lace curtains hanging over all the doors and windows and when I peered inside, I could see the furniture had been delivered. Wasn't set up though." Dirty birdy. We think there are laws against peeping like that. It's OK. We won't tell. Looks like it's time to sit back and wait for our invite to opening night. We think we deserve it.
