You've read the New York Times goodbye, and the mammoth New York Magazine piece. Reality has sunken in, and the tears have finally stopped flowing. Now there's only one thing left to do: eat your last meal at Florent, before it closes on Sunday. We read the news on Eater that landlord Joanne Lucas plans to re-open her father's R&L Restaurant on Tuesday, the original occupant whose sign still adorns the top of the storied bistro. And word is very little will change food wise, but considering that we always loved Florent more for the man than the food, we find little consolation in the news. If you feel the same way we do, you may want to stop by the restaurant this weekend and have your last meal with the man. 69 Gansevoort St., New York NY 10014 (nr. Washington St.; map); 212-989-5779
