Macondo on Houston Street and Man with Scepter

It appears that the space vacated by Lo-Side two years ago has a new occupant. Macondo, a new Brazilian food restaurant according to an exclusive, EVP interview with a man on a ladder, will open tonight on Houston Street between Allen and Eldridge.

The man on the ladder, who was also removing the cardboard from the restaurant’s sign, further revealed that there will be a lot of meat served. Brazilian, imagine that. The restaurant’s location between Joey and Gavin DeGraw’s rock bar, National Underground, and Good Taste Corp. will hopefully provide the secret ingredient for success that Lo-Side was unable to achieve.

Shout out to the man on the ladder, by the way. He wouldn’t tell EVP the name of the restaurant until after he took off all the cardboard. We love a good mystery!

And speaking of mystery, after discovering Macondo, the Second Avenue stop on the F and V subway line had a man with a large sceptre in it this morning.

Looking like a 21st century, Upper East Side Prospero, he was very preppy for a man with a sceptre but did not appear to try to wield his enormous powers on the platform though some subway riders did appear tense and shied away when he arrived.
