CasimirLate last month East Village blogger EVGrieve reported that Casimir (103 Avenue B between 6th & 7th street, review here) was on tonight’s Community Board 3/SLA docket.  It turns out that owner Guillaume Blestel has sold the restaurant.  I spoke with some of the employees over the weekend & not much is known about the new owner.  I did, however, find out that he also owns the rather gaudy looking midtown restaurant/lounge Léa.

I’m always skeptical of restaurant/lounge combos so I really hope that he doesn’t rock the boat at Casimir which I’ve been going to for over 10 years.  We’ll see how this plays out.
