RESTAURANT ROW: Opening next week is Rosé (pictured), a St. Tropez-inspired restaurant that "captures the essence of the French Riviera lifestyle" with fresh-air seating and southern French cooking. No specifics on dishes but The New York Times wrote about the
bartender mixologist Alex Ott, so he must be fancy.
DOWNTOWN: A sizable new liquor store has opened on burgeoning Spring Street, at 5th--called Buzz, there's 4,000 bottles of wine and no shortage of beer available for purchase. The hours run until 2 a.m. every night, which seems ballsy.
DOWNTOWN: 6th Street's Cabbage Patch must be doing well: a second level is being added, as is sidewalk seating and longer hours. Weekend hours? Not quite there yet, but soon.
