Last week came word of a possible NY outpost in the works for the Animal boys, and earlier today Eater NY received a tip claiming that the pair has teamed up with uber restauranteur Drew Nieporent. To the Eater NY inbox:
It is official Drew will be opening a new restaurant with the guys from Animal out in California. It will be going in the Mai House space and it is scheduled for a mid December opening (It's obvious just look in the window 187 Franklin). The decision was made really quick on both sides to go into business. What the fare is going to be I'm not 100% sure but I can tell you it's not going to be a sandwich shop which was previously speculated.Hmm. The mystery lingers.
