Florent: Queen Of The Meat Market

David Sigal's documentary Florent: Queen Of The Meat Market, premieres next Thursday, June 24th, at the NYC Food Film Festival. Get tickets here. Openly gay and openly HIV+ Florent Morellet's namesake Meatpacking District restaurant was long the post-clubbing meeting place for a spectacular hodge-podge of NYC's nightlife denizens, celebrities, and activists. The restaurant was forced out of business last year due the neighborhood's rampant gentrification. I loved that Florent posted his T-cell counts on the outside menu board, right above the daily specials.
