The successor to the legendary Pano’s and Paul’s, which closed in 2009 after a thirty-year run, is slated to open in fall 2012, with president/founder I. Pano Karatassos's son, Pano—who worked under Eric Ripert at Le Bernardin and Thomas Keller at the French Laundry after graduating from the C.I.A.—at the helm. According to the senior Karatassos, Pano’s menu will be Mediterranean, with special attention to the fish selections, as opposed to the American-Continental cuisine of Pano’s and Paul’s.
