Armando's, the Brooklyn Heights longtimer, which closed last year, then decided to reopen again, is looking almost ready to reopen.
New, cream-colored awning. Sleek outfittings inside, including a large white marble bar up near the front. A polished new image. But no sign of the lost neon lobster sign!! Did the Landmarks Commission kill it? Hey, I'm happy Armando's is coming back, but if there is no vestige of the place's long history, it seems like a hollow victory.
