Andrew Hearst isn’t the only one pained to see that RESTAURANT sign come down. Eater captions a photo: “Disgrace: the awesome old signage above Double Crown, being destroyed on Sat afternoon.” Reality check: “You bozos are not from the nabe," writes a commenter. "These signs are circa 1998; which replaces The Astor Restaurant circa 1996, a Balthazar knockoff.” Okay, so Keith McNally definitely won't be buying them. [Eater]
