Govind Armstrong Finally Admits Defeat at NYC's Table 8

Celeb chef Govind Armstrong's much-ballyhooed entrance into the New York dining scene, Table 8, was deemed a flop almost from the get-go (see Bruni's zero-star review). Now, with rumors of its demise circulating for the last few weeks, Armstrong finally confirms the rumors, telling the Post that he's officially pulling out of the Big Apple. Says the dreadlocked chef: "I have made the decision to separate myself and the Table 8 name from the hotel."

So who's up next for the space? Everyone welcome Scarpetta's Scott Conant. >>
