CaVaLa Park in Tribeca to be Renamed After Albert Capsouto

Pie-shaped park to be renamed after restaurateur.
Albert Capsouto, one of the "frères" of Capsouto Frères, will be commemorated next week when the city Parks Department renames Tribeca's CaVaLa Park after the restaurateur. Capsouto died this past January at the age of 53 after a battle with brain cancer.

The pie-shaped park, originally named for the intersection of Canal, Varick, and Laight streets, will be officially re-christened Albert Capsouto Park on Thursday, October 28. The park is around the corner from the restaurant.
