The corner eatery arriving at 200 Lenox Avenue apparently has now gone through a third name change. Lawrence Page announced earlier this year that the Pink Heifer would arrive at the corner of 120th street but the moniker offended some folks. It was then reported that the owner of downtown's Pink Teacup restaurant would then just open a second branch with the same name in the Mount Morris Park Historic District section of Lenox Avenue but the signs posted last Friday put an end to that speculation. The new name that just went up at the soon to arrive restaurant now appears to be Auberge Laurent and this time the decision appears to be final. We have not heard news about the opening date but it seems like things are progressing quickly at this point in time.
