Jay Chadrom hasn't been able to settle a dispute with his landlord at the Beauvallon -- but he did managed to settle something else: He just closed Aqua, his raw bar and kitchen-free restaurant at 925 Lincoln, and reports that he's "very busy removing everything."
But some of the things will resurface. The entire menu, for example, which is now being offered at Opal, Chadrom's restaurant just across the street at 100 East Ninth Avenue.
All in all, it's been a tough couple of weeks at the Beauvallon. After all, the space at the top of the block belongs to Nine75, which Jim Sullivan closed on September 29 -- and now is slated to reopen Friday with new owners.
