Bobby Flay's Bolo Redux to Be Named Gato

By Kelly Dobkin  |  July 31, 2013

Celeb chef Bobby Flay has been rumored to reopen his classic '90s tapas spot Bolo in NYC for months now. Word comes via Gael Greene this morning that the new eatery will be called Gato, after an "orange-furred cat that crossed his path when he saw the new space." (Is that actually true?) The new space will be at 324 Lafayette Street and the menu will not be an exact redux of Bolo, but will feature Mediterranean flavors as well as Spanish flavors and should be open by 2014. Architect David Rockwell will design the 174-seat space. [Insatiable Critic]
