Look Out, Nobu!

060918morimoto_320We have it on good word that Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto has been scouting locations in the South of Fifth area and may stab his knife into a prime location on 1st Street. Says our source, "He really loved the space and is thisclose to signing a deal." That would be cool even though we need another sushi spot--even if Morimoto's may be the best--like we need another Italian restaurant. In other restaurant news, Philippe, the Mr. Chow resto opening in the Gansevoort South, is opening . . . eventually.
