Almond: Women's Wear has the first look…

Women's Wear has the first look at Almond, the newest project to make an attempt to best the demons of 12 East 22nd Street (previously Borough Food & Drink, Rocco's and oh so many more). Optimistic co-owner Eric Lemonides isn't worried about opening into this economic albatross: "In these uncertain times, people do want to go out...There’s nothing better when you’ve had a really crappy week than to have a roast chicken that’s awesome and a glass of red wine and call it a day.” Jeffrey Chodorow, besides having leased Lemonides and co-owner Jason Weiner the space, is involved as an investor.
