Out EIC Aaron Hicklin is really, really sad that legendary restaurant Florent will soon close its doors. Like, even after dedicating to his latest editor’s letter to the issue, he still may need therapy. Tragic, indeed… [Out]

I went there for breakfast one time after an all-night sex party. A cute blond boy had a diabetic attack right there at the table. It was all very Shelby.
Florent should also be remembered as the most Homo-friendly place in NYC during the AIDS Crisis. More than a dozen times they hosted ACT UP meetings, free food, and cash support for the NYC AIDS activists. They hired dozens of trannies and queers as staff and even ‘closed’ for a few hours to allow a Naked HIV+ photo shoot during the worst of the AIDS Hysteria. An eating establishment overrun HIV+ people NAKED! For you trend-iods: Madonna shot a small portion of ‘Sex’ in the kitchen area. S/M nites at Manhole and 5am pate’ at Florent will always be my fav NYC memories (should I ever leave)
Florent ALWAYS put their hearts & money & brains where the queers were.
hells kitchen guy
And Florent himself would dress as Marie Antoinette every year for a blockwide Bastille Day Party. It really marks the end of the meatpacking district as anything but the most annoying neighborhood in the city.
