Early signs are auspicious: INTERVIEW magazine hosted a party there honoring young NYC artists last night.

An employee of the restaurant said the place should be ready to open in two weeks, and the menu, which features homemade pasta and tons of Italian wines, looks great -- NY Mag's Grub Street has a sneak peek. Here's some pictures from the INTERVIEW Mag party hosted there last night. Place looks molto chic!
