Union Square: While everyone waits for Bar Crudo to move from its current Union Square location to its newer, bigger Divisadero digs in the coming weeks, we bring the news that Bar Crudo's current neighbor Tunnel Top will be taking over the space when the move eventually takes place. But there might be a saving grace for you Bar Crudo fanatics; Tunnel Top owner Ludovic Racinet says he will keep the concept and decor mostly in place. The new name will be Swell, and on the menu side, Swell will have a French-inspired crudo theme. A pair of chefs—one from Luce, one from Chouqet—have been hired to run the kitchen, and since no closure is expected, they're looking at a changeover in early April.
