Open & Closed--Say Hello to Superdive; Goodbye to Pere Pinard
Aureole, along with chef-owner Charlie Palmer and executive chef Christopher Lee, has relocated from its Upper East Side home to Bryant Park. A four-course prix-fixe for $115 is available in the main dining room, and a parallel a la carte menu is on offer in the bar room.
Gus and Gabriel, which was set to open June 30, had to delay its debut. Michael Psilakis's new gastropub, named for this late father and young son, experienced a problem with the air-conditioning system, but solved it and opened promptly the next day.
A new seafood restaurant, Aqualis Grill, has opened its doors in Fort Greene. John Tsakinis of Kellari Taverna helms the kitchen, where he'll turn daily catch into simple dishes, such as whole grilled sea bass and grilled calamari with saffron-lemon vinaigrette. The liquor license has yet to arrive, but you can always try B-ing your own B.
The saga that is Superdive finally opened a day early this past week. Apparently, opening night was filled with frattiness, flatulence, and cute girls. Call ahead for keg service reservations.

Le Pere Pinard on the LES, where you could have your fortune told by a man in a pointy hat while your steak tartare was being assembled tableside, has shuttered. The place is already under reconstruction.
