Excellent timeline of the iconic Restaurant Florent
"The final five weeks of the restaurant’s existence, beginning Monday, will be marked with decorations, events and performances that reflect a new theme each week. The themes will be taken from the Kübler-Ross stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and, finally, acceptance. Mr. Morellet and many of those around him seem to have already moved to that final stage. They’re retrieving and lingering over their favorite snapshots from its past."
"We’re going to go out with a big bang. But we’re going to go out with an ironic, absurdist, Dada-ist big bang." – Florent Morellet
