It’s been almost a year since Bevacco opened and lifted the “Corner of Cranberry” curse that has haunted many eateries at 60 Henry Street for years. The Wall Street Journal published a short piece on the restaurant this weekend:
Bevacco [60 Henry Street] continues its Corner of Cranberry curse killing this week by adding lunch service. Mrs. Fink, Baby Fink and I enjoyed a great meal yesterday afternoon.

Chris Fohlin (@cfohlin) tweets us this photo inside the soon-to-open Bevacco at 60 Henry Street. Looks like a comfy bistro setting much like the new owner’s other establishments.
Karl the intrepid explorer ventures to the far-flung realms of Gowanus and Park Slope to visit three establishments owned by the same man whose “Bevacco” will occupy the former Busy Chef space in what we hope is the not too distant future. Our man with cam brings back encouraging news. Video after the jump.
