Restaurant Paparazzi: Verde

After dinner at sushi newbie Aki (see the PW review in two weeks), blogalicious hit Capogiro as we often do for a second dessert: orange-cardamom sorbetto and chocolate malt gelato on a slender, brittle, waffle-ironed cone. Across the street, Lolita was jumping, and we could help but notice Marcie Turney and Valerie Safran’s fifth concept, the just-reported flower/chocolate shop Verde (it means 'green' in Spanish and Italian), looks like it’s nearly ready to spring. Not much to add to initial reports, except that we dig the logo and that the cacao side of the biz is named Marcie Blaine Artisanal Chocolates. Space looks sweet.
