Lenox Lounge Set For a March Comeback

Richie Notar, a managing partner at the world renowned Japanese restaurant, Nobu, is planning to take over and restore Harlem’s historic Lenox Lounge. According to The New York Post’s Page Six, there are rumors circulating that Robert De Niro will also be involved with the relaunched space. Notar, who is keeping busy, is also working on other projects in 2013 like launching Notar Hospitality, and partnering with New Orleans baker Dwight Henry on Mr. Henry’s Bakery, a Harlem spinoff of Henry’s popular Buttermilk Drop Bakery and Café in the Treme neighborhood of Nawlins. Lenox Lounge and the new bakery are scheduled to open in March.
