GFRAP NEWS: TROPICA AND BISTANGO

First, the good news: Bistango now welcomes gluten-free customers with delicious bread from Everybody Eats. Great choice!

And now, the not-so-good news: Tropica is "closed for renovations." I'm trying to get more details.

UPDATE A GFRAP representative informs me that Tropica is temporarily closed pending relocation in the same building.

UPDATE April 24, 2007 Here's an interesting note from the Patina Restaurant Group, which runs Tropica and other centrally located restaurants in Manhattan (and elsewhere): "Thank you for inquiring about Tropica. We hope to reopen by the start of 2008 in a new location on the Vanderbilt Avenue side of the MetLife Building. We are currently in the process of developing specific gluten-free menus to be available at our restaurants Café Centro, Brasserie, Brasserie 8 ½, and Naples 45. The current menus for these restaurants can be found at www.rapatina.com...."
