Brooklyn-born actress Debi Mazar and husband Gabriele Corcos, who recently moved to the area and co-host The Cooking Channel's Extra Virgin, are reportedly in "serious talks" with the landlord to move into the space last occupied by Fornino, according to The Daily Meal.
There have been plenty of rumors swirling around about the space's next potential tenant basically since the day it closed a couple months ago, with everything from Bay Ridge's The Family Store to something called Beef O'Brady's getting its moment in the sun. But with a couple reputable sources behind this tip, it seems like this is the most promising lead yet.
Florence-born Corcos' background is in music and while he's a very good cook, odds are that he won't be signing on as head chef. Something tells me that this space won't be too empty too long, and we'll know for certain who the actual next tenant will be soon enough.
